This evening, The Young Turks' Cenk Uygur announced a group of people who will be added to their reporting division. Although they have had two previous rounds of hires, this particular round is bigger than all of previous ones: Dylan Ratigan from MSNBC will be a contributor to The Young Turks. The other new hires are Jonathan Larsen and David Sirota.
