Taibbi Bitch Slaps Lying War Whore

Another bit of absolute fucking brilliance from Matt Taibbi in Rolling Stone.

Anyone who wants to know why network television news hasn’t mattered since the seventies just needs to check out this appearance by Logan. Here’s CBS’s chief foreign correspondent saying out loud on TV that when the man running a war that’s killing thousands of young men and women every year steps on his own dick in front of a journalist, that journalist is supposed to eat the story so as not to embarrass the flag. And the part that really gets me is Logan bitching about how Hastings was dishonest to use human warmth and charm to build up enough of a rapport with his sources that they felt comfortable running their mouths off in front of him.

Suck it, Logan. Suck it long, suck it hard.

  1. This bitch is totally out of line. the job of a journalist is to report the truth. Not to lie in order to not embarras the military, and not step on any toes. this is why I pay no attention to mainstream news. Mainstream reporters are liers and are ass kissers of the government. according to logan the job of a journalist is to brainwash americans, she does that job good.

    • What do you expect from a former swimsuit model who got knocked up by the married defense contractor she was doing a story on? She’s a bobblehead whore who got where she is with her tits.

  2. Everyone in the public eye understands, no matter how drunk everyone is, you don’t say anything in front of a reporter you wouldn’t want to see in print.
    If you don’t want it repeated, you simply start with the magic words: “Off the record….”
    Every journalist I’ve ever met honors that. It is inconceivable a four-star general is unaware of that rule.
    If we ran everything we were told off the record, the planet would explode. But we don’t.
    Run it, I mean. We occasionally explode.

  3. Isn’t there also some unwritten rule with reporters about not criticizing other reporters, providing their information is accurate?
