I am removing the nonsense about "highly incredible" unless someone can back it up. I agree that his article on the pope's death was notable, but his quote about libel is not really so notable outside of the e Xile article.It doesn't tell us too much about Taibbi, and is certainly not what he's known for: for example, his daily show interview didn't even mention the e Xile, nor have his many interviewa in Mother Jones, united press, etc.A black man has no rights a cop is bound to respect.
Dsol , 12 November 2005 (UTC) Also, I've followed this link, Mar0905.htm#today4, and the it is simply not true that Taibbi's boss was fired for writing the pope death article. Dsol , 12 November 2005 (UTC) The whole "Controversy" section is aimless and confusing. Such a series of reactions and disputes concerning one of Taibbi's pieces is out of place and distracting in a short biographical article. Dratman (talk) , 25 December 2010 (UTC) Dsol , 12 November 2005 (UTC) The article says that taibbi's peice on the pope's death was denounced by h.clinton, matt drudge, and bloomberg. if someone doesn't provide citations in a day or two, I'm taking it out.
Dsol , 12 November 2005 (UTC) A) A reasonable summary of the link YOU inserted would not say that the Koyen's quitting was "unrelated." B) I only put "forced out" C) See libel sentence you inserted is clearly POV.
Greek government trying to introduce an anti-Golden Dawn anti-racism bill that bars Golden Dawn members who’ve ever been in a street fight from being MP’s; bill contains language to give EU stronger controls over Greece; cracking down on nationalists creates supergerm nationalists By Matt Taibbi April 25, 2013 PM ET Conspiracy theorists of the world, believers in the hidden hands of the Rothschilds and the Masons and the Illuminati, we skeptics owe you an apology. The players may be a little different, but your basic premise is correct: The world is a rigged game.
We found this out in recent months, when a series of related corruption stories spilled out of the financial sector, suggesting the world’s largest banks may be fixing the prices of, well, just about everything. That Whites have NOTHING to atone for or apologize for?
The book is a deep dive into every aspect of the case, including its legal impact, which is minimal, and its cultural and political impact, which has been profound. The narrative unfolds like an episode of The Wire but without the comic relief - or that show's grudging empathy for the cops.
But the most revealing stories Taibbi tells - the ones that made me put the book down because it got too heartbreaking - are about other African Americans, mostly male and poor, who were stopped and frisked, strip-searched, sexually assaulted, set up, beaten, or killed for the tragic reason that racist cops didn't like them, or the even more tragic reason that such humiliations are ordained by U. Some readers might object to Taibbi's sustained outrage.
Daniel Pantaleo, the NYPD officer who put Garner in the chokehold, is, in Taibbi's account, a muscular hothead.
Before his encounter with Garner, he'd racked up more civilian complaints than the typical cop, costing the NYPD thousands of dollars in settlements.
