Journalist Matt Taibbi Talks to The Hill About His Upcoming Book, Hate Inc.
Author of four New York Times bestsellers, and an award-winning columnist for Rolling Stone, journalist Matt Taibbi tackles the current state of the media, with The Hill’s Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti. How did we get here, and how we can get out of this toxic spiral of fearmongering, clickbait and corruption? Taibbi has the answers in his upcoming book, Hate, Inc.
True to form, Taibbi paints a disquieting, detailed account of the intersection of politics, media, and culture, and exactly how they intertwine to muddle the minds of consumers and pit people against one another. Deemed “…one of the few journalists in America who speaks truth to power” by Bernie Sanders, Taibbi demonstrates unparalleled passion, fervor and wit when taking on an especially pressing topic.
With populism on the rise and the integrity of journalism and the media constantly in question, Hate Inc. offers an in-depth, incisive yet accessible assessment of the state of media today—and what it means for the state of things to come.
Hitting shelves October 8th, Taibbi’s highly anticipated and tremendously timely book is sure to be no exception to his reputation for rebellious reporting, pithy prose, and remarkable insight.
