The Young Turks, one of the most popular online news shows in the world, has amassed a YouTube network consisting of millions of subscribers and billions of views. But that wasn't always the case. MAD AS HELL documents the tumultuous, at times hilarious and altogether astonishing trajectory of Cenk Uygur, The Young Turks' main host and founder, as he traverses from unknown Public Access TV host to internet sensation by way of YouTube. When he ventures into national television by landing the 6 PM time slot on MSNBC, Cenk's uncensored brand of journalism is compromised as he becomes a thorn in the side of traditional news media; his unwavering dedication to speaking the truth puts him at the very nexus of the battle between new and old media, and makes MAD AS HELL not only entertaining, but incredibly timely as well.Written by
This Movie Is So Amazing! Although I did think it was missing a few things. I wanted to hear more about Wolf-Pac & the progress that has been made. I also wanted to hear about Cenk & Keith Olbermann's falling out (so to speak). Also some of the older videos like Cenk doing the car tire commercial wasn't present. I have a few more quandaries with the movie, but I guess I wanted this movie to capture in it's 1 hour & 22 minutes the same magic that I loved everyday for years watching The Young Turks, so that even my friends would get a taste of what the worlds largest online news show is all about. So in those regards it fell a bit short. I suppose my hype for this movie was far to high, & it couldn't have had all the content in it that I wanted without being several hours long. So all in all I would say the movie is still pure amazing, & despite it's minor flaws I would still categorize it as my favorite documentary.
