The Young Turks - 9.10.14: Battle For The Net, War pt.2, Sports & Unmarried Americans

Cenk hosting. Some websites have declared war on the FCC to urge them to do the right thing on Net Neutrality. They’ve launched an ad to tons of internet users, asking them to join the fight against “Team Cable” who are being given the power to suspend speech on the web. Obama also appointed a former lobbyist for these companies as head of the FCC. The 3 main porn sites have also joined the fight against the FCC as they have 50 million people viewing their content daily. Former WH Spox Jay Carney recently retired, and will start his new gig with CNN tonight, breaking down the President’s ISIS speech. Cenk is amazed that CNN thinks that having Carney on board is a big pickup that will drive people to watch their political analysis. Obama is expected to basically start a war with 3 countries tonight, in search of ISIS and the perception that Democrats can be tough on foreign policy, like Republicans are. He will declare that he has authorization to go to war without consent from Congress, a policy that was 1st illegally implemented by George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. The worst part is that he could easily have Congress vote in favor of it and not be solely left on the hook for this war. Sen Tom Harkin warned that this is going to be a repeat of what we did after 9-11. Hillary Clinton aides are getting word out that she would be more hawkish on foreign policy than the “passive” nature Obama has taken. The Democratic Party has become one that is trying to out-Republican, Republicans. Pundits like Chris Matthews, Chuck Todd, & Peter Johnson of Fox News are egging on the upcoming march for war. Now that Matthews is thirsty for war and carnage again, Cenk remembers when he wholeheartedly gave Bush praise for the Iraq War, right before he claimed he was always against it. Cenk predicts that this will happen again with our next invasion over ISIS.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. A Burger joint in Philly posted a receipt of Eagles’ LeSean McCoy since he only left a 20 cent tip, hoping to shame him. It backfired. Cenk and Ana talk about how much they hate this phenomenon of posting a patron’s receipt online. Cenk tells the story of Billy Bob’s cheesesteak where their customer service sometimes led to beatings. NBC News fired one of its producers after he secretly filmed sex with his girlfriend and posted it online at a sextape site. After she discovered it, he admitted to it, and was arrested. New data shows that for the 1st time, a majority of American adults are unmarried at 50.2%.  In 1976, it was at 37%.
