PDA Teams Up With TYT
In solidarity, Alan Minsky for Mike H, Mike F., Janis, Deb, Dan, Dr. Bill, Kim, Bryan, and Shayna—your PDA National Team
As I take on greater responsibility as the Executive Director of Progressive Democrats of America, I bring with me my long years of experience in progressive media at Pacifica radio. I know that nothing is more important for the advancement of progressive politics in the United States than the development and strengthening of independent progressive journalism.
Generations of progressive media voices—from Noam Chomsky to longtime PDA friends and supporters like Lila Garrett, Norman Solomon, Jeff Cohen, Wendell Potter, John Nichols, and Robert McChesney—have shown that corporate-owned mainstream media will reflexively oppose progressive reforms. This, because the narrow special interests of huge corporations almost always run counter to the interests of the general public.
The TYT Network, also known as The Young Turks, has been as successful as any independent progressive journalism project of the past decade. Led by Cenk Uygur, and his excellent team including Anna Kasparian, John Iadarola, and firebrand comic Jimmy Dore, TYT has grown into a 21st century powerhouse. They inform millions of people across the country with an unapologetically progressive take on news and views.
On issue after issue, TYT’s solid fact-based journalism aligns with PDA’s positions. Therefore PDA is proud to announce our official partnership with the TYT Network. The partnership is already off to a flying start, as yours truly, Alan Minsky will join Cenk Uygur from Washington DC on the TYT show Rebel HQ on January 2nd at 8:15pm EST/5:15 PST. We will discuss the state of progressive politics on the eve of the new 116th Congress.
