The most important message out of Cenk Uygur’s departure from MSNBC TV is not about Cenk Uygur or about MSNBC. It’s about the media and the press in general: are we going to be honest with our audience. Are we going to trade in honesty and truth in information that we are supposed to gather for access. Cenk Uygur could not stand that about the mainstream media before he went there; he used to tell the young turks audience that this was a huge problem. And now that he has been inside that machine, it turns out that he was totally right about his outside perception of it. The problem is that they are obsessed with access. And he could not have access to the Democratic voices going into an election with his very critical tone.
Scary, huh? That the government is controlling the media? Are you surprised? Of course not!
