Young Turks host Cenk Uygur is “not buying” the recent news that Glenn Beck fought his way through a major health crisis, an announcement that Beck made on The Blaze last week. “My doctors thought if I stayed in New York City, I wouldn’t be alive today,” Beck said at the time.

Noting that many have questions about the “adrenal fatigue” that Beck claims to have suffered from, Uygur says “if there’s one thing I know, it’s the field of digital on line video…I know that when Glenn Beck says he has the revenue that he does, it’s not remotely true.” Uygur argues Beck is using over-the-top “rants” in an effort to get a new television gig. “If he doesn’t, he’s going to go bankrupt.”
