"The photo of a bikini-clad Brooke Birmingham went viral after she said it was rejected for a success story on Shape magazine's website. The photo, taken after her 172-pound weight loss, shows excess skin around her midsection, the reality of weight loss that Birmingham proudly wanted to show others.

But a bikini picture of Birmingham will now appear in the magazine after all, she and one of the magazine's top editors said on TODAY Friday.

Birmingham, 28, appeared on the show alongside Bahar Takhtehchian, the magazine's editor-at-large, who said Shape will feature Birmingham and five other "real" women in the pages of the monthly magazine."* 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.
