The ‘Bill Gates of YouTube’? The Young Turks Hit A Billion Views [VIDEO]

Spitting in the face of detractors who said the Young Turks would never hit a billion views (me!), the sometimes controversial, always interesting political and news commentary show has just hit that very milestone.

In a class of its own — seriously, it’s the only news and politics show to carry this sort of online clout — the show, hosted by Cenk Uygur, joins some of the biggest creator channels on YouTube as having the designation of being seen by a billion pairs of eyes.

Cenk though, never exactly the modest type in life or on his show, is naturally more excited about the point when the Young Turks becomes the first news show online to reach 2 billion views. Only this time, I believe they’ll do it.
