Over the past 20 years TYT has grown into the largest, most watched online news network in the world, and it’s all thanks to our members, whose generosity has freed us from the influence of corporate interests. Our members have given us the freedom to deliver a powerful, unapologetically progressive message into a media landscape plagued by hackery, both sides-ism and corporate fluffing.
And the result has been a significant impact on the political discourse in the United States. Just a few of our successes include:
Giving progressive leaders a voice
TYT introduced our audience to the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Jamaal Bowman, Rashida Tlaib, Cori Bush, and many more before mainstream outlets realized a progressive wave was building.
Progressive Economic Pledge
Senators Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and dozens more progressive lawmakers agreed to sign our pledge supporting Higher Wages, Medicare for All, Green New Deal, College for All, and Ending Corruption.
Shedding light on under-covered stories
TYT was among the first outlets to cover the murder of Trayvon Martin and the protests at Standing Rock. Mainstream outlets oftendownplay or ignore stories about systemic injustice, but we at TYT believe those are the stories that deserve the MOST media attention.
