Russell Brand (now on The Trews) is well known for his comedy and acting, but also his commentary and analysis of main stream media and the faults therein. Today, he talks to Cenk Uygur about the the unbelievable corporate bias in news, our modern political landscape, and how we can fix and cope with both cultures. How does Ferguson coverage show us how pundits like Bill O'Reilly and others have failed the American public? When did news conform to the status quo and maintaining the agenda of the powerful, rather than serving the public? How do those of us without billions of dollars at our disposal cope with the world as it is? And how does the role of celebrity ironically play into this?
