Ever wonder how conservatives got a reputation for being misogynistic? Ask right-wing radio host Peter Santelli, who announced several times on the air that Hillary Clinton -is- a vagina and should be -shot- in the vagina. The Secret Service would like a few words. Cenk Uygur breaks it down.
Alex Jones is working very hard to make the THANKS OBAMA meme a reality.
Are Republican Senators James Inhofe and Tom Coburn the most loathsome politicians in the country? Oklahoma undeniably needs FEMA aid after the tornadoes but these politicians refused aid to other disaster-stricken states, including those hit by Hurricane Sandy. Why do they believe their state is more deserving than others? Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola (Host, TYT University) discuss.
In this exclusive segment, we present an interview with Donald Rumsfeld from Larry King on Ora.tv. What does the former Secretary of Defense have to say about the AP scandal, wiretapping, and invading the press’s freedom? And did he suddenly forget about such a scandal taking place under George W. Bush?
Regardless of Rumsfeld’s sudden high ground, what the government did to intrude on the Associated Press is actually perfectly legal - and THAT is the shocking and disgusting part of this story. How far will the government go to invade privacy and impede the freedom of the press? Will people who stand in the way - like Bradley Manning and the many weeded out by the Bush administration - have to keep suffering?
After playing the King/Rumsfeld interview, Steve Oh (COO of The Young Turks), Dave Rubin (Rubin Report), and Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show) discuss.

Since 2010, 33 municipalities across the country have filed for bankruptcy. Not since the Great Depression have so many cities been so broke. No other place in the U.S. has borne the brunt more than the Central Valley city of Stockton, Calif. – the largest city in American history to file for bankruptcy. Now, the city has defaulted on its bond payments and stripped health care from retired police officers and firefighters. All the while, an unprecedented legal battle is raging between creditors and the city in federal bankruptcy court.
We dig deep into the financial ruin of Stockton. In the first documentary in a series of films produced by the Center for Investigative Reporting for The Young Turks, we look at the bad deals that brought this city to its knees.
