I say it again, God bless Matt Taibbi. At a time when we have “news” organizations like FOX that behave more like propaganda machines rather than institutions of journalism it is nice to know that there are smart people out there reading source material and closely examining the evidence. And when it is needed, he calls out patsies posing as journalists on their BS:
Megan and I have a long history, which I don’t need to get into here, but I’ll say this: her ragged intellectual poverty could not possibly have been laid any more bare than it was in this appearance. In it, she actually argues that Goldman did not have any more responsibility to see that their clients made money than, say, The Atlantic magazine has a responsibility to see that Rolling Stone makes money.
