Either Cenk Uygur Has Had a Psychotic Break, Or The Young Turks Need to Pony Up for Better Transcriptions

Think it might be time for The Young Turks to fire the clearly foreign transcription service that does the subtitles for their YouTube videos. Because TYT‘s deaf audience is going to think Cenk Uygur is a stroke victim.

Very first line from the transcript: “rolling stone have an article with a truck present no bomb a about at several different issues.”

It only gets better from there. Seriously, watch the whole video with the close captioning turned on. As much as we love TYT, the show is actually slightly more entertaining this way.
