A portion of our Young Turks Main Show from February 12, 2016. For more go to http://www.tytmembership.com.
Hour 1: Cenk, Ben, Iadarola, and Jimmy hosting. The DNC has rolled back President Obama’s ban on federal lobbyists and PACs from contributing to the Committee. Opponents to this change fear that it will be used to help Clinton regain control over the money race. This is apparent in Clinton’s creation of a joint fundraising committee with the DNC. After the PBS debate last night, the media’s take on the results seem slanted. Video of Sanders telling Clinton that she isn’t in the White House just yet. The statement didn’t seem to go over well with the audience and reports focused on that moment.
Hour 2: Ana replaces John for SCS. The Porter Ranch gas leak in Los Angeles has been plugged, and will most likely stay that way. A judge presiding over a case of a molested 4 year old girl by a cop, dropped the charges and sent the girl’s father to jail for 1 year over his outbursts when the evidence was being presented.
