After defending Tucker Carlson, we must now accept that the once great reporter is now a shitty one who peddles in conspiracy theories for clicks.
Like you, I have been deeply disappointed by whatever it is that has happened to Matt Taibbi. I had been an enthusiastic subscriber to his substack. Over time I tried very hard to follow his thinking through a series of his posts that became increasingly harder to comprehend. I discovered he had accumulated a collection of right-wing commenters who struck me as both cruel and dishonest. Finally when the right-wing destructiveness began to be overwhelming, I had to disconnect, and at this point I have not read anything he has written for some months.
It sounds to me like he has just actually awoken. What are you all so freakin scared of? Have some Avocado toast and check your phone. It will all be OK. My Pronouns are her, his and they. By the way I heard Tucker gave up eating children for lent!
One wonders if the Russians have kompromat on Taibbi, given how he enjoyed life in Russia and all it could offer him, perhaps a little too much. It might be how Taibbi went from being a well respected journalist into a right wing hack.
What a waste!
Given his prior history, he must know how terrible his current output has become. Has he lost his mind or has money become his be all and end all. Whatever the case he has become a putrid, pathetic individual. Maybe he hopes for a position in “president carlson’s” administration.
Watching Taibbi morph into a right wing shill has been a great disappointment. I had thought of him as a really good journalist
I didn’t know if this Matt Taibbi, but it seems he might, by focusing on such as Carlson, who’s getting so much attention, be reviving his own notoriety albeit in the worst way. That to me is the only logical explanation if he was once a reputable journalist, but as they say, any publicity is good publicity, we’ll maybe.
Well, there has been a stretch where he seemed pretty respectable and maybe did some nice work. But if he has fallen of late, is just a start in the direction from whence he came. How can anybody trust this guy?
I wonder if he's learned the difference between lie and lay since he wrote that paragraph about Ailes.
you must mean "his ideological compxdremxdre"
