“A young American CEO who apparently committed suicide in Singapore was involved in the world of the bitcoin, but was also struggling with other issues prior to her death, friends and colleagues said.

Autumn Radtke, chief executive of virtual currency exchange First Meta Pte Ltd, was found dead on February 26. Police said they were investigating her “unnatural” death, and “preliminary investigations showed no foul play is suspected.”

Neighbors said they thought Radtke jumped to her death from a residential apartment complex near her home.”* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down.

The Young Turks (Winner – Best Political Podcast & Best Political News Site of 2009) were the first original talk show on Sirius satellite radio and the first live, daily webcast on the internet. But that is not the revolution.

We are a rare show that combines all of the news that people care about in one place. We are not afraid to talk about politics and entertainment and sports and pop culture. But that is not the revolution either.

The real revolution is in daring to be honest with people. We don’t patronize our viewers or lie to them. We have real conversations and deliver the news honestly.

  1. "We need the government to protect us" Every time I was robbed I called 911 (government) They come, tell me to get a police report in two days. so you could file with your insurance. So really they not there when the crime happens and not there investigating the crime. You think they do. Only if you are someone who is famous or political it will get looked in to. You should protect yourself yes own a gun.  

  2. what a moron! "Bitcoin was hacked, thats why we need governments to control our money" firstly our money is not controlled by our government, it is controller by the Rothschilds, as is the rest of the worlds, and they steal ont in the billions but in the trillions! aside from that, that is why they want Putin dead because he kicked them out and is now moving into the BRICS nation, Hitler kicked the Rothschild cartel out of his country and that is what caused WW2 believe it or not. Kennedy and Lincoln tried to do the same thing and they were murdered. yeah lets keep giving the Rothschilds all of the power! ps all can be backed by facts! and, haven't you ever heard of counterfeiting? isn't that much the same thing?

  3. Crap, I knew her business was having problems, but hadn't heard she committed suicide (or was possibly suicided).  Thank you for the news Young Turks.

    I think the guy on this show is a complete asshole. To make fun of people for trying to go out on their own and be independent is beyond the pale, especially if while doing so they die.  Scumbag.

  4. The jews control Bit-Coin and the jews know how the algorithms that will unlock as much Bit-Coin as you want. So, wake up and smell the Super jew kikes and stupid advanced mathematics. The idiots at TYT still are struggling with simple mathematics so they will never be able to figure out how the jews were able to use jewish banking laws to steal all the money__legally!

    This young woman probably found out that the jews control Bit-Coin and that the jews are all Telepathic Mind Controllers! She probably wouldn't suck their dicks so the Super jews killed her. Mick Jagger was seen slithering out the back of the Hotel where she was staying shortly before she was found dead. She wouldn't suck me dick so she had to go!

  5. Well the crime scene was contaminated by a party in the home wich was also where her and another company had their servers. So who knows who took what. Typically when a police officer sees someone over stepping boundries, they become a focus of the investigation.  So don't be so quick to dismiss conspiracy theories. The ideas of independent hackers is a bit far fetched but stealing company records and customer accounts is indeed a possibility. Check out the terms and conditions of the exchanges of any one of her ":uber -network". They all say, if someone gets your info its not on us. Yeah I am gonna run right out to place my money in their hands. Mt Gox was serious because it was an accredited financial institute, and oddly the bitcoins keep being found. Check the links and press releases that were published before she died. Everything you need to see why people think the way they do is plain and visible.  I just love it when people leave evidence all over the place. Its make my job so much easier.

  6. Nope – you get a lot of heat for being such a trusting dupe to think the government regulators are on the side of the people!  Yow – read much in the economic arena lately?  We certainly "don't need" the kind of regulation we have had recently!

  7. Why the collapse of Bitcoin exchanges mt.gox seems lost value and its inherent.But not for that reason to lose Bitcoin value of Internet resources as well as.Need a lot of time to regain its value to all who knew and trusted Bitcoin.Expecting people to support some odd co-funding introducing people to know the utility co Bitcoin 13gFy3SQwA4F6on3DpUHt5ZjRBCEzBdvWi .Vietnam is a poor country but it has its own development, to thank everyone for their support, something well worth hope people do not waste resources do not turn their backs on Bitcoin. Thanks

  9. Yeah, we need the government to protect money. So the congress can skip passing a balanced budget but vote to raise the debt ceiling year after year. So the congress can pass a law forcing people to buy services they don't want. So money can be taken from people willing to earn it and given to people who aren't. So the military can fight wars we don't agree with. So the president and his family can take multi-million dollar trips to Africa. Trust the government and everything will be fine. RIGHT!
