"Angelina Jo-WHICH? Samuel L. Jack-WHO? Benicio del-YOU'RE-GOING-TO-NEED-TO-BE-MORE-SPECIFIC? That's what America's teens are saying right now about our precious, precious adult human movie stars!!!!!!!

Kids these days, it seems, are hoarding all of their shits and giving them exclusively to an entirely new breed of celebrity: the YouTube star. I've written before about my bewilderment at having to explain to my tweenage step-kids who some of the most famous people in the world are—even people who I think of as squarely "after my time," like Amanda Bynes and Hilary Duff. What do you MEAN "who's Ashlee Simpson"!?!?!?”

A new survey commissioned by Variety found that "the five most influential figures among Americans ages 13-18 are all YouTube faves, eclipsing mainstream celebs including Jennifer Lawrence and Seth Rogen."

The Largest Online News Show in the World. Hosted by Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian. LIVE STREAMING weekdays 6-8pm ET.

Young Turk (n), 1. Young progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party. 2. Young person who rebels against authority or societal expectations. (American Heritage Dictionary)

The Young Turks (Winner - Best Political Podcast & Best Political News Site of 2009) were the first original talk show on Sirius satellite radio and the first live, daily webcast on the internet. But that is not the revolution.

We are a rare show that combines all of the news that people care about in one place. We are not afraid to talk about politics and entertainment and sports and pop culture. But that is not the revolution either.

The real revolution is in daring to be honest with people. We don't patronize our viewers or lie to them. We have real conversations and deliver the news honestly.
