Twenty years ago, in Moscow, Matt Taibbi was a misogynist asshole—and possibly worse

The piece skewers Taibbi for his sexual abuse of women in Russia. My beef with Taibbi is strictly about him taking it upon himself to propagandize about 9/11 for money, which I will have to go into at a later time. He was wrong, of course, and a fucking asshole propped up by the for-profit press to lie and spin the 9/11 cover-up.

Kevin Spacey also gets some unwanted limelight today…

‘Star Trek’ Star Claims Kevin Spacey Made a Pass at Him at Age 14; Spacey Apologizes, Comes Out as Gay

Hitting on 14-year old boys!!! Keyser Soze. Hollywood is in its death throes this month.

The nasty side of DC?

I’m not sure how much rich white guys like Fincher and Spacey can get their little heads around US imperialism and its malignant effects on the world at large.  This seems like a David Mamet / Aaron Sorkin styled rush at a political drama.  Perhaps this quasi-independent studio model is the new way, with Netflix producing the series, as Amazon will produce their own line of AV products and even College Humor and other big websites hopping on board.

One decision I did not like about the pilot is Spacey’s talking to the camera.  Miscue.  Then there’s the “Mideast policy,” cited, which invites some further scrutiny.

First episode free?

Has anyone seen the show yet?
