Here’s a very interesting clip from citizen radio with Matt Taibbi and Jeremy Scahill, two legendary American journalists discussing Scahills famous bust up with Chuch Todd on Bill Maher, and the state of the Main Stream Media:
Both Taibbi and Scahill have done immeasurable good for the political discourse in America with both men willing to take a bat to conventional wisdom and speak truth to power. Scahill’s reporting on the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the use of private militias (Blackwater) severely undermines the official take on the war and Taibbi’s ruthless demolition of Goldman Sachs has helped channel the public’s anger towards the real culprits of the financial meltdown.
