What’s Google up to these days? Oh, you know. Just throwing money at the Young Turks:

More from Axios:

The investment is part of YouTube’s $25 million commitment to news efforts, which is part of the $300 million Google News Initiative that was announced in 2018.

While TYT takes a strong progressive position as an outlet, Steven Oh, TYT’s Chief Business Officer and the creator of TYT Academy, told Axios on a phone call that TYT is “not interested in cranking out journalists who share our political viewpoint whatsoever.”

Our thought bubble: The videos, which have already been posted online for about two months for this course, appear to be non-partisan, but it’s notable that YouTube is investing in a course from TYT, which has a progressive bent.

Yeah, it’s more than just a “bent.” The Young Turks are basically collapsing under the weight of their leftism. But “news” or something.

If only this were just a sick joke.

That’s just, like, your opinion, man.

It pays to be leftist garbage.


Not even a smidgen.

Oh, they’ll blow plenty of smoke. And the firefighters won’t bat an eye.
