Man...I don't know. TYT looks genuinely disturbed, and genuinely worked up at the Saudi Arabia statement. I've watched TYT a few times, and I'd be hard pressed to think they wanted this to happen.

I agree. I have to go with AJ on this one, though. IMO he just came over to stir things up to have a few laughs. It wasn't until he said something about the Saudis that Cenk got all cranked up. I assume he was referring to TYT's new deal with Al-Jazeera. (I though Al-Jazeera was based in Qatar anyway).
I thought TYT was okay a few years ago, but it's just turned into a platform for the hosts, especially Cenk, to tell everyone how progressive they are.

I rewatched it and now I agree with you.

Entertainment fueled by angry reactions to other anger-driven entertainment.

You get to bet on which obese, ranting middle-aged male will stroke out first. There are no losing bets.
