Liberal personalities and members of the corporate media lashed out at journalist Matt Taibbi Friday following the release of internal documents detailing Twitter’s censorship of a New York Post report on Hunter Biden’s laptop.

“Imagine throwing it all away to do PR work for the richest person in the world,” NBC reporter Ben Collins tweeted. “Humiliating shit.”

Elon Musk, who bought Twitter in October, released the documents detailing how the social media site censored the New York Post’s Oct. 14, 2020 article about emails and documents on a laptop Hunter Biden abandoned to Taibbi, who reported on them in a lengthy Twitter thread Friday. The documents show the Biden campaign requested Twitter address for certain posts.

“Matt Taibbi…what [a] sad, disgraceful downfall. I swear, kids, he did good work back in the day,” Daily Beast columnist Wajahat Ali posted. “Should be a cautionary tale for everyone. Selling your soul for the richest white nationalist on Earth. Well, he’ll eat well for the rest of his life I guess. But is it worth it?”

“It’s true: in 2014, I taught Matt Taibbi keyboard shortcuts for copy and paste,” CNN correspondent Elspeth Reeve tweeted. “If I had not done that, maybe all this could have been averted. I am deeply sorry.”

The Federal Elections Commission cleared Twitter of wrongdoing in September 2021. The laptop was confirmed as authentic in March 2022 by the Washington Post and New York Times.

Democratic activists also attacked Taibbi as he posted about the documents detailing Twitter’s discussions about the Hunter Biden laptop.


“Matt Taibbi always was, and still remains, a fraud,” Democratic pollster Matt McDermott posted. “Doing PR for the richest person in the world should come as no surprise.”

“Forget any ‘Just Say No’ or ‘This Is Your Brain On’ ad, instead show folks the before and after writing & critical thinking skills of Matt Taibbi,” former Biden ad writer Cliff Schecter tweeted.
