Matt Taibbi Is Doing His Wild Crazy Gonzo Journalism Thing Again!


In a nutshell: Rolling Stone’s “vampire squid” writer pushes his blood funnel into the Obama administration. Excitement is high but the conspiracy theories are less convincing, the insults less colorful (“the White House now looks like a backstage party for an episode of Bob Rubin, This Is Your Life!” — no), the reporting decidedly unimpressive. The American Prospect of all places retorts with a swift, able smackdown. The end. [Rolling Stone via American Prospect]
