As a senior with limited funds, I stopped cable and learned to rely on alternate forms of information and entertainment. I opted, among other things, to subscribe to Hulu. It not only streams many MSM shows the day after broadcast, it has also streamed many alternate, and progressive shows such as The Big Picture, Redacted Tonight, and The Young Turks. All of that came to an end late March. I contacted Hulu and was told that it was official, but with no explanation.

Is it possible the Clinton Money Machine had something to do with this blackout of the Progressive Movement? We know MSM has shut out our message, and we know why. Clinton is in the pocket of MSM on so many levels. We do not know that the same is happening with Hulu, but it is worth questioning.

I urge everyone who is perturbed by this further blackout to email Hulu at support.hulu.com. Freedom of speech has never been more important than now. The rep I spoke with encouraged everyone to send an email questioning this action and requesting it be reversed. If we aren't covered by MSM, and are also blocked by alternate media, we have nowhere to turn.

Corporate censorship of what free press remains it on the march. After the corporate, super-rich elites failure to rein in the public with this election cycle you can be sure they will be looking for dirty, underhanded methods to restrict the flow of information to the general public. What will Hillary, the shill of the Ruling Elites bring upon us?

I suspect they are trying to get Islamic Terrorism ramped up to a crescendo, so they can justify mass censorhip of the internet.

Check Youtube for Young Turks. I don't know about RT but I have seen a lot of clips from RT there sp RT they have its own channel. As far as Hulu is concerned call their advertisers and tell them they lost a planned purchase of their product when you found out that they supported Hulu with their advertising dollars, and explain to them what it is about Hulu that you object to.

This seems like a common practice lately. My dad, who lives on the west coast of Canada, used to watch The Big Picture on RT every night. That is until The US, NATO, and Canada got into a dispute with Russia over Ukraine, then suddenly every cable provider in Canada (the oligopoly three) dropped RT network without any warning. God forbid people get both sides of an issue!

The Young Turks have been quite outspoken in getting out the truth, so it's not surprising they've ruffled some feathers somewhere. Isn't Hulu a joint venture between Disney/ABC, Fox, and Universal/NBC? So there might be a clue in there as to why.

I believe TYT live streams on YouTube every night if that's still an option for you.

I have never actually subscribed to Hulu, but wanted to check it out, and see what they had, but I dont think I will now, I watch TYT on UTube,Abby Martin from Breaking the set now has a show called Empire files on UTube, its not a daily show, i think its weekly but you can watch it anytime, but if ABC/Disny has a heand in it, I am sure they had something to do with it.

For many years now it's been obvious and extremly troubling that the corporate media are controlling our politics, our government, and nearly everything else that matters -- even the curricula in our public schools at all levels.

Thanks to Thom & Co. for revealing this Hulu news. I have appreciated TYTs and RT-America, so will join other pro-democracy citizens to protest Hulu's decision and urge a reversal.

Clinton's campaign is spending at least $1 million on attacking Sanders via pro-Sanders social media sites. She is "bound and determined" to win the Democratic Party's nomination -- "no holds barred." Beware of such a person and keep fighting for Bernie Sanders. We must win California, Oregon, and others to take his campaign all the way to the convention in Boston!

HUGE THANKS to you, "Legend," for this information. Knowledge truly is power. We need to disseminate this information.

I just realized this today. I noticed Thom was not having new episodes on Hulu, but figured it was a break or something. What the hell is going on. I guess I will be cancelling my subscription to Hulu and joining TYT as a paid member. Has Thom or Cenk made any statements or anything concerning the situation?

How Do We Take Back the Military From the Billionaire Owned Military Industrial Complex?

Thom plus logo Democrats (Bernie & Lee) in the senate proposed legislation saying what the Constitution already says: that Trump can't go to war with Iran without congressional authorization. Every Republican on the committee, except Rand Paul, voted against it.
