Matt Taibbi, the journalist coordinating The Twitter Files, appeared before a U.S. House committee to give a comprehensive review of the many efforts by federal agencies to censor the views of Americans.
It was Taibbi’s biggest drop yet, and covered new examples of censorship by scores of federal agencies as well as local and state government officials, and even some private entities. In other words, every yokel under the sun believed they had a right to censor and blackball Americans.
The hearing got heated as one congressional delegate, Stacey Plaskett from the U.S. Virgin Islands, referred to Taibbi as “a so-called journalist.” Taibbi answered her snide remark, noting he had written 10 books and won a prestigious national journalism award while serving 10 years as the chief investigative reporter for Rolling Stone Magazine.
Taibbi was too polite. After all, if anyone deserves the “so-called” pejorative, it’s Plaskett, seeing as how the U.S. Virgin Islands isn’t even a state, but just a corrupt territorial enclave, the former home of Jeffrey Epstein. (EDITOR’S NOTE: Plaskett is not a representative, but a delegate. She’s also not from the U.S. Virgin Islands, but simply the daughter of New Yorkers originally from the Virgin Islands. In other words, she’s a typical Democrat — a frigging con artist.)
The hearing came before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee’s Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government. Here’s more from The Quartering.
