Matt Taibbi was back on Antiwar Radio this week to discuss the origins of Russiagate and the major First Amendment case in front of the Supreme Court. They start with Russiagate and talk about what we know and don’t know about the DNC hack that the corporate press said was undoubtedly perpetrated by the Russian Government. Taibbi then draws on his experience reporting on the extensive government involvement in bringing about censorship on social media to analyze the corresponding case in front of the Supreme Court.
