TYT will do it.

Cenk Uygur (@cenkuygur)

We're all in. @TheYoungTurks will give $1 million to charity if @realDonaldTrump and @BernieSanders debate on TYT before CA primary.

18. I'm kind of surprised how many people don't see this for the orchestrated publicity stunt it is.

It could not be more obvious. It's just a coincidence that all of this stuff happened in a certain particular order? Uh, huh.

I'm waiting for someone to leak the script.

5. Don't you think Fox would offer a couple million more.

 

Five million to charity and simply make it a part of their already planned charitable expenses. Literally would make no difference on the balance sheet.

8. Maybe they could list a few charities and let the people vote on the allocation of funds (and

people can match if they want to). Let's say you want to match 50. You could allocate the $50 however you wanted to the individual charities. That would raise even more money for worthwhile causes!

9. So wait a minute

TYT has that sort of disposal income and still don't produce any actual news of their own, yet call themselves a news 'network'? I thought they did that because they were strapped, not cos they were tight. And they charge subscription fee on top of adsense?

Wow.

first ones to offer the charity contribution. Sounds like you're all for it, huh?!

20. I didn't read the rules for the thread

Sorry.

I just have a problem with largess being a cover for greed.

And that's $10 for the pleasure of reading my comment, $2 of which I will donate to charity. I also do subscriptions where you can get 2 comments for every $15 you give.

Ain't I great.

If he can convince disaffected Bernie supporters to vote for him over Hillary then that would be huge.

34. How does anyone take Cenk seriously?

Regardless of which candidate, if any, you support, I don't know why anyone would take Cenk seriously. From claiming that Sanders won Super Tuesday to promoting the ridiculous Clinton-Red State meme to other nonsense, it's clear that the man is totally out of touch with reality.

37. That's a separate discussion, which is taking place in many threads.

I was asking specifically about Cenk, who seemingly wouldn't know reality if it bit him in the ass.

Of course, I get that he's an entertainer first and foremost, so maybe he's just saying stuff he doesn't actually believe. Either way, he spews a lot of utter nonsense.

38. True dat.

As I wrote above, he's an entertainer first and foremost. Unfortunately, when people hear what they want to hear, they sometimes don't care if it's rooted in reality. We see that on display at DU every single day.
