Storyline

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.

Trivia

Cenk Uygur is a co-founder of The Young Turks (2005). The name is highly offensive to the Armenian community because of the historical significance of the term 'Young Turks': In 1908, the political group called the 'Young Turks' came to power in the Ottoman Empire after overthrowing Sultan Abdul Hamid. The main figures of the Young Turk movement, Mehmed Talaat Pasha, Ismail Enver Pasha, and Ahmed Djemal Pasha, began a nationalistic Turkification campaign leading up to the events of the Armenian Genocide between 1915 and 1923. The Young Turks organized the systematic extermination of 1.5 million Armenians by killing squads, starvation, death marches and other methods. Although the company's founders have denied any linkage to the name's historical significance, it's undeniable that Cenk Uygur had published a college article denying the Armenian Genocide.

A fantastic look at what can happen with persistence and a clear vision
26 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've been watching The Young Turks for a couple of years now, and I what I admire the most is their honesty when it comes to speaking truth to power. Progressive politics is something I am entirely behind and TYT provides that in spades. What I wasn't aware of, partially given my newness to this YouTube phenomenon, is how it all started. I believe that is the most valuable part of this documentary. It shows what a fired-up young man with ambitious vision can achieve their goals through tenacity and sticking to first principles. I also wasn't aware that Cenk started as a Republican. Just saying that sounds really odd, but people can (and should) change their political stance when presented with new information. That is the other most valuable thing to take away from this film: that change can be a positive thing. It's this same idea that fuels their efforts with Wolf-Pac. Money has corrupted our political system and I think it's very courageous of TYT to start and promote such a worthy cause. For those thinking that this is just some plug for their show or a fluff piece to promote Cenk Uygur, I will say that you are wrong. Among the many interviewees, few are sparing in their assessment of him as a person. They aren't necessarily mean, but they don't back down when it comes to his overall personality. And of course, it helps to be loud and abrasive when your message is one of outrage at the status quo. Bottom line, whether you're liberal or conservative, you should give this a watch and hopefully be inspired in the process.
