Mark Leibovich is the chief national correspondent for The New York Times Magazinea and is the author of This Town, a book decrying the suck-up relationship between beltway media and the government, and that sick relationship is harming the American people. Washington insiders often get the exclusive after treating the elected officials as well as other insiders with kid gloves, without challenging or questioning the system or their roles in it. But doesn't this kill the point of journalism as the Fourth Estate? Cenk Uygur interviews Mark Leibovich about standing up, going against the grain of cronyism, and more.

Not only does she fight for reproductive rights on the legislative level, she also helps women seeking abortions break through intimidating protest lines and misleading pregnancy crisis centers outside of clinics.

Why did abortion become such a huge part of conservative politicians' agendas, and why is the public safety element all but forgotten? How are health rights and free speech rights mitigated?Ana Kasparian discusses all this and more in this in-depth interview with Katie Klabusich.

We the people have the power to removed the influence of money from politics and the power to remove corporate personhood. Wolf-PAC is the super PAC started by Cenk Uygur to fight for a 28th Amendment for campaign finance reform, to return democracy to the people. But how do we remove the corrupting power of money from the corrupt members of Congress? There is a way, believe it or not, to unite over party lines to correct the Congress that sold the people out. Wolf-PAC makes headway with state representatives, and Mike Monetta is the Director of Organizing for the movement. Think the fight is impossible? Cenk Uygur sits down with Mike Monetta to show the world that it isn't.

Zephyr Teachout an Associate Professor of Law at Fordham University and she is also running an upstart campaign for the 2014 Democratic Party nomination for Governor of New York against incumbent governor Andrew Cuomo. Teachout wants to stop unchecked corporate power and donations. Teachout is famous for founding A New Way Forward- an organization built to break up the power of big banks, for being involved in Occupy Wall Street, and for being a major scholar of campaign-finance law.

She feels New York needs a true progressive governor, and that the Time Warner and Comcast merger needs to be stopped as it's not in the true interest of New Yorkers, nor do other corporate consolidation of powers help anyone except corporations themselves. But how can she hope to overcome Cuomo, who has much more funding power behind him and is actively trying to keep her off the ballots?

Cenk Uygur talks to Zephyr Teachout about her ideas for true progressivism and de-powering the reach of corporations, her struggles against Governor Cuomo, and the fight to get money out of politics

Dave Pounder has appeared in over 100 adult films, and he's the author of "Obscene Thoughts: A Pornographer's Perspective on Sex, Love, and Dating" and the creator of the documentary, " Risky Business: A Look Inside America's Adult Film Industry." He's made somewhat unusual choices in adult movies he's appeared in; for example, he won't appear in sex scenes that are degrading to women or film anal sex scenes. But on top of that, he's got a message-- porn is a sociopolitical statement. How is that? And how can negative feelings and stereotypes about sex be lifted? And is monogamy a lie-- both emotionally and biologically? How do men and women react differently to infidelity?

Cenk Uygur discusses it all and much more in this fascinating, in-depth interview with Dave Pounder here on TYT Interviews.

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?

Russell and Cenk have a frank discussion on these topics and the toxic relationships between politics, mainstream media, and power, and how money is the corrupting link between them all.

What was it like for her starting out so young in the New Mickey Mouse Club? What was it like working alongside Justin Timberlake, and even dating fellow NSYN bandmate, JC Chasez? Nikki was also part of the girl-band "Innosense" headed by the infamous Lou Pearlman! How did she mitigate being one of many, many people who were deeply swindled by him? How has the industry changed? How did she learn to trust again and keep up her positive point of view in the industry? Can failure really shape a person for the better?
