Cenk Uygur is joining MSNBC as a contributor and substitute anchor, the network announced today.
Xinjiang is about one-sixth of China's landmass and has a population of about 21 million, around 60% of which consists of ethnic groups, such as Uygur, Kazak and Uzbek.
Cenk Uygur provides additional detailed analysis on how Fox News refuses to uphold any journalistic integrity.
Uygur gangs rushed to every Han Chinese they saw and cut their throats in groups of 7 and 8.
A journalist noted down what he experienced after the interview of Uygur women protesting for their missing husbands and sons who are said to be arrested:
Although the official media keeps appealing for national and ethnic solidarity, the pictures and coverage of the riot presented to most Chinese indicate it is nothing but a hate crime directed at Han Chinese by Uygur gangs.
Yet Uygur's story is not just about the style and tone of the American media and the issue of outside interests and "access journalism".
Howard Kurtz, CNN media correspondent and the Daily Beast's Washington bureau chief, attacked him in an interview and numerous bloggers accused Uygur of mistaking the personal for the political.
It covers politics and culture and Uygur boasts that its one million views a day puts it on a par with a lot of the cable news shows.
His supporters also believe that it is significant that Uygur's replacement, the Rev Al Sharpton, has given an interview in which he said that he would not criticise Obama.
