Journalist Matt Taibbi was recently tapped by Elon Musk to examine and report on the internal deliberations at Twitter over censoring the Hunter Biden laptop story. In a Twitter thread Taibbi detailed how powerful individuals sought to – and did – get individuals banned from the site and how company executives fumbled their way through figuring out what kind of censorship measures to impose over details of the emerging Hunter Biden laptop story.
Jimmy and his panel of Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger and The Dive’s Jackson Hinkle discuss the Taibbi scoop and Twitter’s ham-fisted approach to censorship.
