You know this guy.
He is the one on all the 2016 election night videos who started the evening talking really big about a Hillary landslide and then had an on-air breakdown when she lost. It was too good for words.
Cenk Uygur was then an MSNBC host. Now he is a Democratic congressional candidate in California and not only is he left-wing, but really far-left. He makes Bernie Sanders look like Lindsey Graham.
That’s why it is so wonderful, so satisfying, such poetic justice to hear him whine like a late 19th century railroad tycoon when his own media shop tries to unionize. It’s the same old leftist axiom: do as I say, not as I do.
The Huffington Post reports Uyger said this to his Bolshie colleagues at his left-wing media lair: “The reality is we’re in a precarious position… We’re in a digital media landscape where almost no one makes money or is sustainable… For a smaller digital media company, those are absolutely real considerations… If folks say they don’t believe we’re in a precarious position, OK. And that’s their decision to make.” He said this as glistening beads of desperation likely dropped onto his cheap tie.
The HuffPost again: “…a Feb 12 all-staff meeting was supposed to ‘deal with personnel matters’ but things changed when a Twitter account claimed that The Young Turks (his show) employees intended to form a union. Uygur ‘urged employees not to do so, arguing that a union does not belong at a small, independent outlet like TYT.'” The HuffPost cited two employees who were in attendance.
Start receiving the latest news from award winning journalist, TV broadcaster and radio host Steve Gruber.
“He said if there had been a union at the network it would not have grown the way it has,” reporter Dave Jamieson wrote, noting that staffers said Uygur became tense and angry, “chastising an employee,” in the process.
I mean, does it get any better than this?
A radical leftist economic nitwit runs into the laws of the free market and freaks out. Oh, unions are fine for everyone else. But he almost calls out the Pinkertons when the subject is talked about by his staff.
Most conservative news and commentary shows were unavailable for comment, as they were overcome with too much sweet sweet schadenfreude to make the effort.
