Buddy Roemer and The Young Turks

In April 2014, Buddy Roemer became a partner at The Young Turks, an online progressive news network founded and run by Cenk Uygur. Roemer’s firm – Roemer, Robinson, Melville & Co, LLC – invested $4 million into the company. According to Uygur, the two met and bonded over their shared support of campaign finance reform, an issue that both Uygur and Roemer support and have spoken about extensively for many years.[46] According to their investment agreement, Roemer’s firm is granted a seat on The Young Turks’ advisory board, but does not enjoy editorial or content control.
