TYT Politics obtained exclusive drone footage showing the Dakota Access Pipeline construction has reached within a half mile of the Missouri River, which flows into Lake Oahe—the main water source for Standing Rock Sioux tribe and millions of others.

The question then becomes: will Energy Transfer Partners—the company building the pipeline—obey the Department of Justice and Army Corps of Engineers order NOT to drill under the water—or, like many other pipeline builders before, disregard the orders.

In 2002 Cenk Uygur launched an online program called "The Young Turks," which he billed as the first video news show on the Internet. In December 2011 Uygur took the program, with his name added to the title to differentiate it from the online show, to television on Current TV. The nightly show features guests who offer their opinions on topics from the worlds of politics and pop culture. Although Uygur was born in Turkey, the show's title is not related to his nationality. It refers to a phrase used to describe someone who is an insurgent or radical in a political party who advocates for changes in the group.
