By and large he views both the Democrats and Republicans as jointly-owned subsidiaries of those same multinational corporations, Cenk essentially views the Democrats as {{Dirty Coward}}s and believes they are capitulating to this process, but he gives credit where it's due. He holds a particular soft spot in that towards Alan Grayson, Russ Feingold, Anthony Wiener and UsefulNotes/BillClinton, though he still gives Clinton flak for allegedly contributing to the economic recession and allowing corporate control of the media. His view on the Republicans is [[AlwaysChaoticEvil even harsher]], but he still has a soft spot for old-school Republicans like Alan Simpson, who he believes are dead wrong on the policies, but right on the issues. He also believes that the mainstream media [[ConspiracyTheorist deliberately]] [[StatusQuoIsGod leads to an unwillingness to genuinely and forcefully challenge orthodox political positions and conventional wisdom.]] He has also argued that modern American political journalism fails to meet its obligation of reporting on the news in an objective manner, preferring a neutral approach to news stories, so as not to be accused of taking sides�even when there's already a clear distinction between fact and fiction.

** In addition, he views UsefulNotes/FranklinDRoosevelt and UsefulNotes/BillClinton in this light during their presidencies, even though he does[[WhatTheHellHero call them out for their bad decisions]] (internment of Japanese-Americans for Roosevelt; deregulating the markets, allowing corporate control of the media and signing the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defense_of_Marriage_Act Defense of Marriage Act]] into law for Clinton).

---> '''Cenk:''' (Interrupting Karen) Give me a "thank you" for feminists for getting you the right to vote. Otherwise, stop voting! AND GO MAKE ME A HAM SANDWICH! [[note]]Cenk was incensed by Karen thinking men had earned their right to vote more than women and citing that men had to lose close to a million of their own- in terms of British military deaths alone- to World War One before getting male universal suffrage whereas women only had to wait for 10 more years by mostly-peaceful means and were never legally or socially compelled to risk their lives in defense of their communities or country. The closest thing to a rebuttal that Cenk was able to come up with is the notion that Karen is being ungrateful to Feminists.[[/note]]

* JerkAss: While he already frequently expresses his agreement with most of [[DoesNotLikeMen Third-wave Feminist rhetoric]], it is his treatment of popular MRA [[GirlWritesWhat Karen Straughan]] during [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7kqqywey7g an interview]] that is widely considered as having cemented his status as an ideologue rather than a critic. His and his fellow pundit Ana Kasparian's [[https://youtu.be/wTiIU2blarA?t=3m54s recent attempt to take jabs at her]] while she wasn't there to defend herself is similarly noted by many as the low point of that particular segment.
