1/12/23 Matt Taibbi on the Twitter Files, Russiagate and Government Censorship

Download Episode.

This week on Antiwar Radio, Scott talks with Matt Taibbi about the latest batch of Twitter Files, released seconds before Taibbi jumped on the line. To start, Scott asks Taibbi to respond to the claim he’s become a right-winger. They then dig into the new Twitter Files thread which details the company and government’s response to Tweets relating to Russiagate. Taibbi frames this new drop in the context of all that’s been revealed so far and explains the overarching theme—that the government made a clear shift from monitoring online platforms to working to control what is said on them.
