  1. Congrats on a great hire, TYT! And for all the bigots commenting here, go FK yourself. Put it on endless loop and re-read it if there's any confusion.

  2. I know Andrew! He went to my church in Brooklyn! The Mount Pisgah Baptist Church! I am so glad for you Andrew, this was always your dream and now you are living it!

  3. Kudos for increasing TYT diversity of perspectives. Keep going. Latinos/Natives and Asians have so much to say about current issues, so few vehicles from which to express themselves to a large English-speaking audience.

  4. Is this the guy thats going to drive the racism angle on news politics and culture? I knew you'd have someone fill that empty divisive role Cenk. Thanks!

  5. i love how the trolls make the regressive left mad. its scientifically proven that blacks have the lowest IQ. Eastern Asians have the highest and whites are middle. accept facts!

  6. Not a single racist comment here directed towards Andrew Jones. Lots of comments directed towards 'white racist alt-right cucks' though.

  7. has TYT made a video like this for any other anchors? cuz I don't remember seeing one before today

  8. Talib Kweli is a racist. He said "Asian people have squinty eyes and yellow skin" Literal direct quote. But continue on your crusade of your principled and well thought out convictions.

  9. Thought it said Alex Jones ….. wtf i need more sleep… i was crying inside till i re-read then name. WELCOME Andrew you have big shoes to fill.

  10. So when the TYT bring on any white guy/gal there are NO comments, whatsoever, about how they hired a white person. But they get a black guy and that's all anyone can talk about? I hate people (no matter the race). And yet people pat themselves on their own backs praising themselves over how much more evolved they are than other species. I just don't see it.

  11. Talking about music, don't you guys think it is about time we have TYT Music? Where you analyze and review the latest music, albums etc. Just an opinion. After all, this channel/network is supposed to appeal to young people, right?

  12. Prefer diversity of colour rather than opinion.

    Typical tyt. Having various ethnicities dosent make you less incompetent

  13. Former Reporter For The Young Turks Files Lawsuit Against Outlet For Racial Discrimination.
    Andrew Jerrell Jones, a former reporter for The Young Turks (TYT), has filed a lawsuit against the network alleging racial discrimination and wrongful termination.

  14. Haha I love all the comments here, calling people racists yet TYT is now being sued by this guy for RACIAL DISCRIMINATION. Nice going Cenk!

  15. It's hilarious to read the comments from today and 8 months ago, trolls screaming that they only hired him because he was black and now screaming that they fired him because he black……

  16. This guy's complainant is insane.
    First and foremost he makes a big deal because he has 10 years of experience in journalism with all these companies and he was hired second in line to a girl fresh out of college. He basically accuses Cenk of being racist because he talked up this girl's award because she only earned it in highschool. lol.
    Then he complains that he was held to higher standards than these new reporters so thats obviously racism and not because he's supposed to be experienced… He claims all his stories and idea's were super well written and he had more experience even then his editor and when he has issues with his editor he immediately claims racism and keeps claiming racism.
    Then he says TYT, who have to be some of the most anti-white / pro black people out there are racist… because Cenk said he wasn't just Turkish but white also white once.
    …because his editor was against black people for shooting off a bottle rocket in a civil rights museum parking lot…
    …because his editor described black people sitting outside in the heat as 'poor' lol.
    Also if he's such a great writer why is his complaint so horribly written, full of mistakes too.

    Honestly from this video being in may, and from what the complaint says, it sounds like he wrote only two to three articles before he was let go in Sept.

    lol.

    I mean the whole things a joke. I wouldn't be surprised if TYT treated him badly for racist reasons since they're so bigoted against anybody who isn't their pet, and because of how crazy they are and because leftists tend to be leftists to make up for their racism. But ya I dunno I still can't help but wonder what happened.

  17. Haha for a "progressive" news network you guys sure are bigoted. Congratulations Cenk, here's to your empire.

  18. OK so they raised 2 million dollars of their supporters in order to hire more staff now 8 month later the black reporter they hired was fired just makes me wonder how many of those new hires are still left and what exactly happened to that 2 mil depending on how many are left

  19. AJ's credentials speak for him. He wrote for greater media organizations than TYT so his claims are very believable given his work history.

  20. Oh, they hired that guy who screamed "racism" when they didn't hire him the first time. What could possibly go wrong…. UPDATE: he's suing them for discrimination.

  21. Aaaassand….

    Now he’s suing you Cenk……..

    For being a, wait for it…..

    Racist
    πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  22. It doesn't matter what race he is what matters is you can never trust a socialist or a communist and that's all tyt hires. Because that's what tyt is. All people who claim their for multiculturalism are phonies. Everybody hates everybody from time to time people even hate themselves from time to time so trying to act like you can get along with different cultures on a regular basis is a bunch of hooey. And the black guy suing tyt is making a profession out of doing this. He's also suing another company in New York I don't remember the name of it right now you can look it up for discrimination.

  23. Lmfao when a cult of victicrats hires from their victim community they get victimized. Hows that new "reporter" working out?

  24. Lol so hiring all these investigative journalists didn't really work out for you guys. They've all turned around and are suing you now.

  25. I hope he sues the pants off of TYT…. not because i think they're guilty of "racial discrimination" (Andrew was a pretty awful reporter) but because they did this to themselves XD

  26. And now you can add TYT to that list..Yeah! you don't wanna hire a guy who's had dozens of employers..There is a reason why they've had so many employers..

  27. Anyone at TYT going to address the fact that he’s suing? I might have to unsubscribe if the working conditions are as he states and no one at TYT says otherwise.
