April 28th, 2017 6:40 PM

Writer: Most GOP Congressmen Believe Conservative Media ‘Bulls**t’
April 7th, 2017 5:01 PM
Fusion’s Alex Pareene seems to think that America’s biggest problem isn’t any of the usual suspects (e.g., deindustrialization, terrorism, health-care costs) but rather the popularity of conservative media among conservative politicians. For a long time, contended Pareene in a Wednesday piece, “the conservative movement peddled one set of talking points to the rabble,…
Rolling Stone's Taibbi Mocks Liberal Trump-Russia Collusion Obsession
April 3rd, 2017 6:37 PM
A good way to judge how the fake news story about the supposed collusion between the Donald Trump campaign and the Russians is holding up is to take a look at how liberal but skeptical reporter Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone is covering it. Almost a month ago on March 8, Taibbi was warning Democrats and the mainstream media to be very wary of this dubious story. Since nothing has been…
Matt Taibbi: Trump Is ‘Unleashing Stupidity as a Revolutionary Force’
April 1st, 2017 4:49 PM
The term “dumb down” and its variants apparently didn’t exist until the late 1920s or early 1930s. Rolling Stone’s Taibbi suggested in the cover story of the magazine’s April 6 issue that the dumbing-down of America may be complete before the expression is a century old, and that President Trump deserves a huge share of the blame. Taibbi declared that Trump is…
Rolling Stone's Taibbi Warns Democrats & MSM on Trump-Russia Fake News
March 8th, 2017 7:17 PM
Be very careful Democrats and your mainstream media allies. The fake news story about collusion between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia is a minefield that could destroy your credibility even beyond conservative skeptics who already don't believe you. So who is making this warning? One of the usual "rightwing" sources? Nope. The warning comes from the very very liberal…
Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi Paints Trump as 'O.J. in the White House'
February 10th, 2017 7:53 AM
Pundits often analogize Donald Trump to figures such as Richard Nixon and Silvio Berlusconi. Less commonly put forward are parallels between Trump, onetime owner of a pro football team, and O.J. Simpson, Hall of Fame running back and unconvicted murderer. Rolling Stone’s Taibbi drew the comparison in a Wednesday piece: “Apart from the monumental scale of the error -- we put O.J. in…
Matt Taibbi: America Will Recognize Obama’s ‘Humanity and Greatness’
November 18th, 2016 5:52 PM
Rolling Stone’s Taibbi has started what amounts to a premature “Miss Me Yet?” meme for President Obama, and he recommends that question be answered “yes.” In a Friday piece, Taibbi opined, “Donald Trump may have won the White House, but he will never be a man like his predecessor, whose personal example will now only shine more brightly with the passage of time…
Matt Taibbi: Libs’ Gripes About Campaign Coverage ‘Getting Ridiculous’
September 17th, 2016 12:26 PM
Liberals often allege that the media are too tough on Hillary Clinton and not tough enough on Donald Trump. Taibbi is left of center and anti-Trump, but he thinks the quantity and quality of those complaints are “getting ridiculous,” and that the main problem isn’t bad campaign coverage -- it’s dopey voters. “We are less than two months from the possibility of one of…
Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi Trashes ‘The Myth of the Liberal Media’
July 30th, 2016 1:48 PM
Is media bias just smart marketing? Yes, suggests Taibbi, who claims it’s “irrelevant” that “most individual reporters” are liberals given that their profit-driven, audience-conscious corporate overlords keep them on a short leash. “Whatever their personal leanings, influential reporters mostly work in nihilistic corporations, to whom the news is a non-…
Lefty Writer: Conservative GOPers ‘Destroyed the American Character'
May 19th, 2016 11:39 PM
Even though Donald Trump is “dumb” and “racist,” he might constitute an upgrade in the Republican party’s leadership, suggests Rolling Stone’s Taibbi. That’s because before Trump turned into the GOP’s presumptive presidential nominee, the public faces of the party were “mean, traitorous scum.” Republicans, wrote Taibbi in the…
Matt Taibbi: ‘Next Step Down’ From Fox News Is ‘The Third Reich’
October 16th, 2015 12:25 PM
Rupert Murdoch is in a pickle, and the famously abrasive lefty writer Taibbi is loving every minute of it. In a Tuesday article for Rolling Stone, Taibbi portrays Murdoch as “desperate… because he senses his beloved audience of idiots” abandoning Fox News in favor of Donald Trump, “a onetime Fox favorite who is fast becoming the network's archenemy.”
Matt Taibbi: 'American Sniper' 'Idiotic'; Chris Kyle 'Kind of a D**k'
January 22nd, 2015 5:23 PM
In a nasty screed against American Sniper on Wednesday, Rolling Stone contributing editor Matt Taibbi claimed the Oscar-nominated film was "almost too dumb to criticize" but proceeded to do so anyway, declaring: "Even by the low low standards of this business, it still manages to sink to a new depth or two."
Ana Marie Cox Can't Hide Her Disdain for White Guys
April 13th, 2014 6:53 PM
Did you know that white men are good for little more than making crystal meth? And that Americans are proudly belligerent and ignorant? At least according to Wonkette founder Ana Marie Cox, as expressed Friday night on "Real Time with Bill Maher" with her formulaic snark.
Cox was a guest on the show, along with GOP Rep. Duncan Hunter of California, actor Rob Lowe and left-wing…
NPR, Supposed Oasis of Civility, Promotes Hard-Left 'Enfant Terrible
April 9th, 2014 4:18 PM
On their NPR Books Facebook page, the taxpayer-funded liberal sandbox carries this promotional copy for the latest socialist Occu-porn from Matt Taibbi: "Poverty goes up. Crime goes down. The prison population doubles. Fraud by the rich wipes out 40 percent of the world's wealth. The rich get massively richer. No one goes to jail."
It doesn’t have to be technically true (…
