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.

Nikki Deloach is one of the stars of the hit MTV show, "Awkward" where she plays a young mom who revels in her teenage daughter's sex life. But Nikki herself lives in a much more down-to-earth way! 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?

Cenk Uygur discusses it all and more in this in-depth interview on Hollywood, ego, empathy and more with actress Nikki Deloach!

Professor Richard D. Wolff. is one of the world's leading Marxian economists and is a professor of economics emeritus at the University of Massachusetts, where he taught from 1973 to 2008. He is also currently currently a Visiting Professor in the Graduate Program in International Affairs of the New School University in New York. He is also a founding member of the Green Party of New Haven Connecticut, is the host of Economic Update, at WBAI in New York City, and has co-authored 13 books, most recently "Democracy at Work: A Cure for Capitalism" in 2012. 

Do we have true capitalism? What exactly is Marxism, and why does it exist? Most Americans have a knee-jerk reaction against Marxism, but is it fully justified to not even speak of it? What political histories and structures are compatible with different economic systems? Is there a positive role Marxism has taken in national and world economies?

Avowed capitalist Cenk Uygur discusses these questions and much more with Professor Richard D. Wolff.

Max Blumenthal is the author of Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel; he speaks to Cenk Uygur about the situation in Gaza straight from Ramallah on the West Bank. He has been a vocal opponent of Benjamin Netanyahu's right-wing militaristic leadership of Israel, the U.S. government's support of violent acts in the name of the state, as well as the treatment of people living on the Gaza Strip. 

Max argues that the status of people living on the Gaza Strip is worse than what black South Africans suffered during Apartheid, asks why the U.S. continues to push for assault on the Gaza Strip, and explains how he, as a Jewish man, mitigates his criticism of the state of Israel. Can Americans protest the violence and death through boycott?

In this latest terrific interview, hilarious and incisive political comedian Jimmy Dore (http://twitter.com/jimmy_dore) sits down with The Young Turks' host Cenk Uygur (http://twitter.com/cenkuygur) to discuss politics, the media and how corporations have seized control of them both - all of which Jimmy also covers in his new book, "Your Country Is Just Not That Into You: How the Media, Wall Street, and Both Political Parties Keep on Screwing You - Even After You've Moved on."

Along the way the two also discuss Jimmy's Chicago upbringing and why, as the 12th of 12 kids in an Irish Catholic family, he was eminently disposable, how ABC newscaster Brian Williams can be a terrific guy and still be a huge part of what's destroying the country, and why on earth someone making $50,000 a year would ever care about the estate tax.
