Matt Taibbi continues to be the only journalist working in America who I can stand.
Do click on over to read his latest article on drones, and his take on the rest of the media's take on the news about them. I myself was appalled last week when I was listening to public radio and even their supposedly "liberal" guest couldn't get himself to say too much against the use of drones to kill American citizens abroad, even without concrete evidence of their terrorist complicity.
If you don't have time for the entire article, I can give you the takeaway:
"This whole thing is crazy. In our own country, we don't allow the government to torture criminal suspects and/or kill people without trial – because it's wrong. If it's wrong here, it's wrong in Yemen or Iraq or Afghanistan; if it's wrong to do it to an American citizen, it's wrong to do it to a Pakistani. Our failure to recognize that and our increasingly desperate attempts to rationalize or legitimize this hideous program gives the entire world an automatic show of proof of American bigotry and stupidity."
But really. DO read the article. And read the entire editor's note at the bottom: Taibbi has a little something to say on the morality of how we as Americans kill people (and I do mean we--we are all complicit). And he's the only one out there saying it, as far as I can tell.
