Watch Filibuster TV

The Young Turks, the first nationwide liberal talk (and now TV) show, has "decided to go all the way. We will be live on-air until the Democrats make a decision to filibuster (or not). We don't know how long this will last, but The Young Turks will not go off the air until there is a conclusion."

YT host Cenk Uygur writes: "This could be short and painless if there is a decision quickly. But it could also be long and painful if the decision is not made for awhile."

The filibuster to force a filibuster starts at 6PM EST tonight [VIDEO/AUDIO].
