About Matt Taibbi

Award-winning journalist and author Matt Taibbi has been a staunch defender of the First Amendment his entire career. Most recently, he exposed the Twitter Files, perhaps the worst threat to free speech in America’s history. He is the publisher and editor of the online magazine Racket, on the independent platform Substack and hosts the podcast America This Week with novelist and native Minnesotan Walter Kirn.

Taibbi’s much lauded and publicized testimony in front of the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government exposed the sweeping effort of government agencies and Big Tech to control and censor information. At the very moment when he was testifying before Congress, his home was visited by IRS agents. He is now deemed Enemy Number One by those who would rather suppress information than let people hear the truth.

Fiercely independent and without loyalty to any ideological side, Taibbi has earned a reputation for exposing government and media lies and excesses, earning numerous awards including the National Magazine Award and the Sydney Award for his Rolling Stone columns. Taibbi is also the author of 10 books, including four New York Times bestsellers.
