He sets the current day example of what EVERY reporter should strive for in the service of their jobs and public interest.

He’s smart, funny, accurate, revealing, insightful and makes all the right connection along with just the right amount of tongue in cheek sarcasm.

It is not hyperbole to put him in the same league at Woodward and Bernstein and you have to look long and wide to find another reporter with the skill and courage to “tell it like it is” clearly and bluntly. Howard Cosell comes to mind.

For decades, the MSM has dismissed the investigative journalism of Rolling Stone Magazine. Dismiss this source at your peril. Yes! Matt Taibbi may be perceived as a journalist who has enherited the seat of Hunter S. Thompson. But he brings more to the table – without a trunkful of various uppers/downers on a road trip to Las Vegas.
Matt Taibbi is the real thing, and I feel inclined to bring aboard Tim Dickerson. Don’t like them? Don’t like the truth?
Who likes to be faced with our stupidity?
Well, I do! I love Matt Taibbi and the truth which with he smacks me right dab in the face….

Thompson desk at Rolling Stone magazine.

If you think this kind of stuff wasn’t going on at Comptroller of the Currency and Treasury you’re an idiot (and I’m sure the Fed threw the best regulation-free money orgies, and still is). Boy when Bernanke, Paulson and Geithner threw a legal free-for-all no financial law or regulation was sacred(just ask Kenneth Lewis). The breadth and scope of laws that got broken in this Country by the Financial Industry between 2002 and 2008 is absolutely unfathomable. And who have we seen hung out to dry – Madoff? Whoop-dee-doo! And then O’bama puts the same guys in charge who caused the mess. Don’t think for a minute there aren’t a lot of people still extremely pissed about this. How can anyone expect this economy to pull out strongly when its carrying so much putrid, cancerous dead-weight along with it ..

After reading the recent article by Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone link – http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/new s/is-the-sec-covering-up-wall-street-cri mes-20110817

I wonder what your response will be. I can tell you this is the swan song for the Wall Street friendly congress. I fully expect you and the banking committee to disembowel these ivory tower SEC officials for the unforgivable cover up they have been so blatantly been part to. I would like to know what actions will be taken by your offices in order to protect the common man – who you are there to protect. Yes, I do think this is an indictment of a system that includes your office 100%, and I do expect action or removal of the folks that are responsible.
