The "Young Turks"network's primary audience are brain-numb progressives stoners on their Facebook page and YouTube channel, so you can bet most of their viewers have no friggin idea who Dan Rather is. And in case you've never seen it, the Young Turk's election night panel meltdown and descent into near suicidal madness remains one of the great YouTube clips of 2016.
Rather described the new show as being a “no bells and whistles” affair that will be filmed from Rather’s office (a step up from Keith Olbermann reporting from his moms basement) and focus on stories that he believes are not getting enough attention in the media, as well as on original reporting. Rather told CNN that he was motivated to launch the show by Donald Trump’s “attacks” on the press:
“I feel strongly that when you have a president who is continually, relentlessly damning the press, individuals by name, individual institutions and calling the press the enemy of the people — listen, this has to be resisted....”Since being booted from the anchor chair at CBS for propagating fake news, Rather has been slowly circling the media drain, bouncing around various liberal cable news network outlets including a multiple-year stint with Mark Cuban’s HDNet that no one has heard of either.
