Matt Taibbi, 'got to!'

international / mass media / commentary
out of the horse's own arse
Alternative, 'independent' journalist Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone Magazine, seems to have become an apologist for the 'man.' I could scarcely believe my ears (see video) when out of Taibbi's own mouth he stated that mostly 'good people' are in the government -- knowing full well that almost all of Congress has been bought by Wall St. He also stated that the US Corporate media is NOT a 'top down' propaganda apparatus but is captive to profit seeking -- he seems to have forgotten the outrageous, concerted, brazen propaganda sell of the Iraq invasion complete with WMD LIES and babypowder anthrax.
And if that brazen example of flagrant propaganda is not enough to portray Taibbi as a fuckin' LIAR (we know he's not a moron) recall 9/11 and the CONCERTED media chorus all repeating the same lines from the same script and all accusing Osama Bin Laden of the attack -- within 24 hours -- WITHOUT a SHRED of evidence linking him to the attack!
Captive to PROFIT SEEKING, MY ARSE!
Those two efforts alone could have been taken out of Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels' own book.
But perhaps the most compromising and convincing FACT that the US mass media is a propaganda apparatus is their disproportionate membership in the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) a body primarily formed to gain control and manage the mass media and public perceptions.
Whether you've been in the employ of the elites from the start or whether they got to you -- your reputation as an independent has just gone out the window, Taibbi!
Next you'll be telling us that the government report on 9/11 is accurate!
And finally, just who do yo think is buying your completely transparent bullshit, Matt, beside some lobotomised Americans? The international community is quite capable of determining the 'floor from the ceiling.'
