Matt Taibbi reports about subjects like the crimes of the financial industry and its regulators, and other unaddressed failures of American law and society. My favorite part is his ability to empathize with the people he meets and portrays for us. My second favorite aspect is his occasional lapse in journalistic calm. It just saves me the time if he does the snarky reactions instead.

The Divide is about something many people either don't see, or turn a blind eye to, when deciding who to believe or when judging someone from a brief news story. The basic issue is the wide gulf between the unbelievably rich 1 per cent and the rest of us. Poor people lack the protection of laws that affluent Americans take for granted.

This is a book every voter should read and understand, and consider while deciding how to vote.… (mais)

One of those books you think everyone in America should read. Taibbi is a gifted writer and journalist and the stories that he tells in this book are lessons about justice in the 21st Century that leave you with an unmistakable feeling of disgust.

One of Taibbi's great skills is to make complex financial, political and other intentionally Kafkaesque bureaucratic institutions relatively clear to the lay person. He does this with a sense of humor rooted in easily relatable righteous indignation, rather than the smugness of a P.J. O'Rourke or ego overload of Hunter S. Thompson. Griftopia is the most lucid account of the financial collapse I've read, and it also does a good job of explaining how wretchedly awful Obama's health care "reform" actually is. As angry and disgusted as I was made to feel reading this, it's one of the few books I would recommend to everyone I know, just so we're all on the same page regarding how fucked we all really are.… (mais)

Given that it was essentially a complication of material, it seemed to run together after a while, but the theme of the media critique is worth part of the time spent reading it.
