Matt Taibbi: Hate Inc., How the News Became a Twisted Branch of Showbusiness—and What We Can Do About It

His most recent book, Hate, Inc., argues that the media twists the truth to pit us against each other. In talks, Taibbi paints an alarming portrait of politics, media, and culture, while providing a way forward against our most urgent crises.

This event is co-sponsored by the Donald P. Bellisario College of Communications.

Matt Taibbi
A vivid, brazen writer whose work tackles the most pressing contemporary issues with the urgency they deserve—be they political, financial, or societal—Matt Taibbi is just as riveting a speaker as his award-winning, wry journalism would suggest. He has both the professional chops and the hard-hitting style to piece together the problems behind a fractured America in ways other writers on the topic can’t, acting as both an accessible, entertaining public intellectual and academic for the everyman. What ties everything together for Taibbi, what much of his work, books, and talks are ultimately about, is unravelling that often intangible thread of inequality—which can be found in every aspect of American society today.
