SYNOPSIS: "Mad as Hell" follows Cenk Uygur's transformation from an unknown conservative talk show host on Public Access TV to a progressive internet sensation with his show "The Young Turks," which has amassed over 800 million views on YouTube. On a self-imposed mission to speak the truth, Cenk attempts to fix the fundamentally broken system of politics and media in America, thus attracting a loyal audience and building the largest online news show in the world. Once Cenk ventures from the internet into national television and secures the 6 PM slot on MSNBC, his uncensored brand of journalism is compromised and Cenk becomes the nexus in the battle between new and old media.
