This week I spoke with Matt Taibbi, author of Hate Inc: Why Today's Media Makes Us Despise One Another. He is a political journalist for Rolling Stone, host of the podcast Useful Idiots, and publishes a newsletter on Substack. We use a lot of Matt’s articles as resources for our YouTube videos, and as part of our political research. He is an exceptional journalist with an admirable work ethic. He understands what has gone wrong—not only in the political landscape, but in how that landscape is being reported on.

In this episode, we discuss the phenomenon of Trump vs. The Media, the question of when the Democratic Party changed its values, and The Media Class vs. The Working Class. Are there any news outlets we can trust? And how can we address the culture war that seems to be getting worse?
