KIM KARDASHIAN NUDE PICS! (How NBC News’ Former Host Got His YouTube Ratings)
Big Government ^ | July 25th | Larry O'Connor

Posted on 07/25/2011 1:31:13 PM PDT by Halfmanhalfamazing

When NBC News and Cenk Uygur "mutually agreed" to part ways last week, Uygur took to his internet news program to explain his departure. He boasted that his YouTube show had "up to a million views per day." This suggests that the world was hungry for Uygur's special brand of progressive political commentary.

We here at Breitbart.tv have taken a look inside the numbers and the fact is that political commentary is not what online viewers of "The Young Turks" keep clicking for. In fact, they aren’t looking for "news" either. The "up to a million views per day" are coming from folks interested in the same thing most online consumers are looking for: scantily clad women and sensationalistic viral stories.

Here is a very brief and hilarious overview of the top 50 shows presented by Uygur. After viewing them you’ll be asking yourself how NBC News ever hired him in the first place.

This is most excellent, that someone actually took the time to do the necessary leg work to dig into this.

Cenk Uygur should preface any statement with the disclaimer that Cenk Uygur is a Turkish moslem.

I was asking myself that from day one. I may be an old man (51) but I am pretty up to speed on YouTube and who is getting the views there. The Young Turks were always in the 20 to 40K views range for most of their videos, and Cank Ugliar was not at all the draw he claimed to be. They had occasional videos that popped over 100k views, but there are at least a dozen young, hip, smart, entertaining kids on YouTube that blow past those numbers on a daily basis.

MSNBC believed the BS, hired the bland partisan ideologue without doing their homework, and finally woke up and smelled the crap he was shoveling.

Not cool! I did click through and watched the entire video and did not see a single image of K.K. in the nude.

Bummer...

How do you pronounce “Cenk Uygur”?

That's funny. I wondered the same thing when I first saw the name come up as the replacement for the fired Ken Oberman. Then I decided I really didn't give a rat's behind how it's pronounced since I never saw Oberman's show and certainly had no intention of watching the new guy's show, either.

FRegards,

In Turkish, the C is pronounced as a J. So, Cenk Uygur is pronounced as Jink Yougur.

It’s pronounced Jenk You-ger

If you want to hear it pronounced in discussion:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0MGKTR2dMOM

Keep in mind, this is RT - Formerly known as RUSSIA TODAY, which will tell you a lot. And who is the interview with? Someone from the Soros-funded group “free press”. Self-described-marxists “free press”.

Anyways, at 1minute 50 seconds is when they break into the story about Cenk Uygur.
