headline in Colby's piece reads, "Cenk Uygur Targets Fox News While Still Trailing CNN." And of course, Colby has a point. Uygur has no case to make.
But perhaps there's a bit of ratings method to Cenk's madness:
Still, Uygur’s comments about chasing Fox News is the sort of fearless red meat that has made him popular amongst his progressive audience, and it demonstrates a willingness to sacrifice a safe and cautious route if it means he’s going to win.
Yet one wonders what Comcast will think of this kind of belligerence--is this the tone that Steve Burke and the Roberts Family wants to see infect their entire company?
Still, the Fox media operation had the best response, as recorded by Colby:
When contacted by Mediaite, a rather nonplussed FOX spokesperson said, “What’s a Cenk Uygur?”
Indeed, there's no reason to learn much about Uygur yet. Let him get all the way up to #2, and then we can think more about him.
