Matt Taibbi on Mainstream Media: "You Can Run Any Sh** Up the Flagpole and These Reporters Will Salute It" [VIDEO]
January 13, 2008
Rolling Stone's excellent political reporter Matt Taibbi (whose work regularly appears here on AlterNet) stopped by Bill Maher's returning Real Time with Bill Maher this weekend and talks about the exhaustive experience of covering the presidential campaigns. He laments the glowing, fan-boyish coverage John McCain receives, the widespread acceptance and reporting that the surge has worked and also the oddity that we may end up with the two establishment candidates the press had coronated originally (Clinton and McCain) after all.
