Tell ’em, Taibbi!! Sorkin sucks.

Hey, MSM: All Journalism is Advocacy Journalism | Matt Taibbi | Rolling Stone

So New York Times Dealbook writer Andrew Ross Sorkin has apologized to journalist Glenn Greenwald for saying he’d “almost arrest” him, for his supposed aid and comfort of NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. “I veered into hyperbole,” was Sorkin’s explanation …

Did he also “veer into” a long career as a shameless, ball-gargling prostitute for Wall Street …

The irony of all of this is that this whole discussion is taking place in a phony “debate” that’s now being cooked up about the legitimacy of advocacy journalism, which is exactly what Sorkin practices when he goes down to Zucotti Park on behalf of a bank CEO or when he talks about how “we” screwed up, letting Snowden out of the country.

As one threatened with arrest for obstructing justice by an New York innocence advocacy attorney (for my non-attorney innocence advocacy), I’m with Taibbi.

The attorney also said “we” in making her threat.

If memory serves, I laughed.
