    I’m not like offended or anything, I just think at this point he’s just shitposting and his constant bullshit is neither new nor surprising. And I don’t think his audience is anyone other than people mad at him online or people who enjoy seeing people get mad at him. I can read my own posts if I want to see some influence-less asshole have bad opinions online.

    Glenn, Taibbi, etc were very important figures for a long time among anti imperialists and left of center economic types.

    Normal to keep an eye on people you used to read and were influential to your own thoughts.

    Do people not think that Glenn is weirdly up Russia’s butt? It’s pretty clear the guy has spun like a top on issues and been weirdly aligned with despicable people. Taibbi is almost parody the way he speaks about some shit vs him being on Bill Maher like 8 years ago.

    I think Taibbi really pissed everyone else off when he refused, rightly, the Russiagate narrative being served up by left media. Now he doesn’t have anyone left in the media on his side. He’s under an even bigger microscope with everyone waiting to jump on any possible misstep.

    Dude still puts out quality work on his substack, but you can tell his work is way more careful and guarded. He’s still one of my favorites.

    Read threads, first one relevant to what federal investigations have proven, and the second relevant to the idea of the dossier being held up after the fact by the right as a proxy for the real investigations into real coordination between the campaign and Russian operatives.

    I mean you should be able to trust them to be reasonably accurate. The problem here really has to do with the various handwavings that people do to make their case. If you were led to believe that Russiagate was Putin’s personal assistant secretly wiring funds on a secret server while on the phone with Don threatening to release the pee tape if he didn’t play ball, you’re right to be underwhelmed. But there’s certainly far more substantive contacts between the campaign and Russians to just dismiss the whole premise.

    The truth:

    Putin wanted Trump to win.
    Trump asked for help generally.
    Russian hackers hacked Hillary and leaked buttery males.
    Hillary ran the worst campaign in recorded history.
    Trump won, he was happy, Putin was happy.

    I guess I’m still pissed off about buying hook, line, and sinker what all the major players were putting out when the story hit. Then the retractions started coming and I felt like a complete idiot. I latched on to what Taibbi was putting out. I was already a huge fan. I still do buy into what he’s writing about it. I’m still a huge fan and probably always will be.
