Veteran, cynical political journalist Matt Taibbi regards Rachel Maddow versus Sean Hannity as the new Coke versus Pepsi. The news business is a racket, he says. Its goals are to sell hate and conflict, and to keep you addicted. The left/right divide pervades all coverage, and it says the other side is evil. And who doesn’t hate evil? Taibbi writes in a highly entertaining style but – beware – he’s an equal opportunity offender. He paints a caustic, clear-eyed, damning portrait of the news business, which he says is out to hijack your eyeballs at any cost.
