The Young Turks - 11.11.14: Putin, Filibuster, Ebola, Marijuana & Video Game Study

John Iadarola and Ben Mankiewicz host TYT. Putin visits APEC and has a moment of humanity while placing a shawl on the first lady of China, Peng Liyuan. President Obama made an observation of Putin at APEC by saying he looks like “the bored kid in the back of the classroom”. The guys discuss Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Republican obstructionism, and Manchin’s chancese in his next election. Ben’s prediction is that Joe Manchin could be the next “Joe Lieberman” of the Democratic Party. Concerns of killing the filibuster by Republicans are in play after the mid-term elections. John and Ben wonder if the Dems will use its strength like the Republicans have done, even though the rules of using it have changed.

Its a “Benana Hour” with Ana and Ben hosting SCS. Dr. Craig Spencer has been cured of the ebola virus after an expensive plasma transfusion and is now well enough to return home. A new study out of the University of Dallas has revealed that extreme chronic pot usage can alter the structure of the human brain in the orbitofrontal cortex with other parts of the brain making up for this altercation. A study by Stetson University Florida has shown that playing violent video games or watching violence in movies does not lead a person to become violent and does not affect the crime rate.
