When Bad Arguments Die

Cenk Uygur debates Ed Butowski at Republican Convention

Cenk Uygur debates Ed Butowski at Republican Convention

This particular one died on a live “Young Turks” stream at the Republican Convention. It was my favorite part of the whole week.

I always respect it when pundits with right wing views debate with somebody who might ask them questions they feel uncomfortable with, rather then staying on safe ground at Fox “news”. Ed Butowski’s website lists him as an “internationally recognized expert in the wealth management and as a financial advisor”, although he doesn’t have a Wikipedia page. He is a regular on Fox “news”, so that is something I suppose. (snark)

Cenk sits down with Butowski, and tells him to pick a subject, which turns out to be Bernie Sanders’s views on the economy. I’m pretty sure he thought he would be able to throw Cenk off, but I’d say the opposite happened.

It’s a fun interview to watch and civil, unlike anything you see on Fox. Enjoy!

    Too bad the video that is making the rounds about Cenk today is the one where Alex Jones tries to get his sinking ratings up, by walking right on to TYT’s set during a taping and trying to get someone to hit him, before lying, and telling people he was invited.

    I wish Cenk had hospitalized the pathetic jackass!

    Brad Friedman liked Cenk’s interview just as much as I did.

    If anybody hasn’t listened to Brad’s radio show, you don’t know what you’re missing. It’s on every day, and you can download the podcast at BradBlog.com for free.

    Please donate though. I do!

    If you think I’m lying about Brad’s show being great and wondered why nobody, anywhere has been talking about “the 28 pages” actually being released to the public, you’re wrong. Brad had a show with the best person in the world to talk about those pages; the man who used to deliver the daily presidential briefings to H.W. Bush and Reagan, and activist extraordinaire, Ray McGovern.
