Why TYT Signs Off With BYE-BYE: Jon McLaughlin (1927-2016)

The legendary John McLaughlin, of "The McLaughlin Report" recently passed away. His style and attitude were greatly influential to TYT’s own Cenk Uygur. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"John McLaughlin, host of the television show “The McLaughlin Group” for 34 straight years, died Tuesday morning at the age of 89, according to a post on the show’s Facebook page.

“As a former jesuit priest, teacher, pundit and news host, John touched many lives,” the post reads. “For 34 years, The McLaughlin Group informed millions of Americans. Now he has said bye bye for the last time, to rejoin his beloved dog, Oliver, in heaven. He will always be remembered.”

On Monday, McLaughlin was absent from the show, breaking his hosting streak of 34 years, seven months and one week.

"I am under the weather,” McLaughlin said in a note at the beginning of this week’s episode. He added that his voice was “weaker than usual,” but "my spirit is strong and my dedication to the show remains absolute!””*

    He also had a show called “One On One” that lasted 29 years. Also he had a
    short lived talk show on CNBC which he did with a studio audience. :)

    Oh no! I was watching McLaughlin Report this Friday and it was the first
    one ever without Dr. McLaughlin. They said he was recovering from an
    illness. I am genuinely heartbroken to learn of his passing. My deepest
    sympathies to his family. He was a legend and will be sorely missed.

    A man that allowed all sides of a issue on his shows over the years. He is
    the last of that error. Who chose integrity over his own politics. Hate to
    see him go.

    TYT does not deserve to use McLaughlin’s trademark salute. John was a
    legend who created a sensation, Cenk runs a circus complete with spitting
    camels

    His name was actually spelled “John”. Jon McLaughlin is a pop singer.
