Dave Rubin Challenges Cenk Uygur: “Prove Me Wrong”

Cenk Uygur, creator of the progressive media network The Young Turks, fired shots at political talk show host Dave Rubin on Twitter, Wednesday, questioning the success of Rubin’s new book, which is on the New York Times’ Best Seller list.

“According to  @nytimes best-seller list, some organization is doing bulk buys of  @RubinReport’s book. Media never talk about this. There is endless money for right-wing grifters. Billionaires finance all of the so-called grassroots conservatives, I’m sorry, classic liberals.”, tweeted Uygur.

Rubin responded to Uygur’s claims, calling him a liar and issuing a challenge to Cenk to prove him wrong, saying he would donate $5,000 to any charity of Cenk’s choice.

“Hi Cenk. Like everything you spew, that is a lie. 107 copies of over 20K sold were bulk. And we have the receipts from Penguin Random House themselves.

But I’ll be a sport. Prove I’m lying and I’ll donate 5K to any Armenian Genocide charity of your choice.”, Rubin tweeted back.

“Don’t Burn This Book” currently sits at #12 on the New York Times’ Best Seller list after just making the list this week.

“Don’t Burn This Book” claims to be a guide to understanding the arguments and agenda of the Progressive Left with the goal of enabling readers to provide a counterargument.

As Rubin’s book says:

Dave Rubin launched his political talk show The Rubin Report in 2015 as a meeting ground for free thinkers who realize that partisan politics is a dead end. He hosts people he both agrees and disagrees with—including those who have been dismissed, deplatformed, and despised–taking on the most controversial issues of our day. As a result, he’s become a voice of reason in a time of madness.

Now, Rubin gives you the tools you need to think for yourself in an age when tribal outrage is the only available alternative. Based on his own story as well as his experiences from the front lines of the free speech wars, this book will empower you to make up your own mind about what you believe on any issue and teach you the fine art of:

  • Checking your facts, not your privilege, when it comes to today’s most pervasive myths, from the wage gap and gun violence to climate change and hate crimes.
  • Standing up to the mob against today’s absurd PC culture, when differences of opinion can bring relationships, professional or personal, to a sudden end.
  • Defending classically liberal principles such as individual rights and limited government, because freedom is impossible without them.

“Don’t Burn This Book” was released to retailers on April 28th.
