The recent dust-up between MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan and Twitter
Files journalist Matt Taibbi has mushroomed to the point where
elected officials are now calling for Taibbi’s arrest for allegedly
lying under oath during his recent Congressional testimony. Author
and academic Norman Finkelstein labels Hasan a “sewer rat” for
misrepresenting the extent of Taibbi’s ostensible “errors” in the
Twitter Files and challenges him to correct the record.
Guest host Aaron Maté speaks with Finkelstein about Hasan’s reporting on the Twitter Files as well as his contribution to labeling the Labour Party’s Jeremy Corbyn an antisemite.
Plus a segment dedicated to the demise of hipster empire apologist media outlet Vice News.
Also featuring Mischa Paullin, Kurt Metzger and Mike MacRae! And a phone call from President Joe Biden!
