Left-leaning but honest liberal Matt Taibbi has been creating a lot of headaches for America’s far-left fringe Democrats lately. In his latest screed he destroys corrupt leftist corporate media. He documents how the Democrat’s media toadies have strayed so far from a free and fair press that they bear strong resemblance to the former Soviet Union’s Pravda. It is worth noting that other than his gig at Rolling Stone, Taibbi has been forced to self-publish on Substack as most of corporate media has tried to shun him. They cannot handle the truth, but it isn’t stopping him.
Long, but an interesting and important read to understand the new American left.
Matt Taibbi is not a centrist, and he probably isn’t even a true liberal. Call him “liberal-left”. But the Rolling Stone editor may be the last honest leftist in media, and he’s a smart guy. He knows the mob will come for them when it is done with the GOP, conservatives and centrists. It already is. When the left loses Matt Taibbi, it is in trouble.
Make know mistake, this guy leans pretty far to the left. Maybe he is more of a real liberal. At any rate, he has been a friend to the Democrats and left for years. When you start to lose the like of Matt Taibbi you are in big trouble. This actually gives me hope.
