"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"--Container.

I didn't care much for Cenk Uygur towards the beginning of this documentary, as he came across to me as being opportunistic and self-centered. By the end though, he had won me over. I think he really showed his metal (both to me, and the members of his young turks team) when he turned down the million dollar hosting position that MSNBC offered him, which to all appearances looked to be a buyoff. I think it really unified he and his team and gave them a newfound focus and dedication to delivering important news and commentary which is almost completely missing from corporate television. It would be wise for them to release more of young turks on DVD's so they reach a wider audience than youtubers. I would definitely recommend watching this, if for no other reason than to see the evolution of Cenk from a hardcore republican in his early youth, to a democrat, to an adult that is now severely disenfranchised with our political system and corporate control over that system.
