Campaign Culture, Politics, and the News Media: Matt Taibbi Launches New Podcast on Rolling Stone

Bestselling author and Rolling Stone writer Matt Taibbi is the host of ‘Useful Idiots,’ a compelling weekly series focusing on news and politics.  

Useful Idiots is described as “an iconoclastic take on the political podcast.” Rather than jumping on the bandwagon of viral coverage, Matt Taibbi and his co-host Katie Halper will cover the stories that are frequently left out, erased, or skimmed over in traditional media. And because Taibbi will be covering much of the upcoming presidential election for Rolling Stone, the program will feature guests straight from the campaign trail. For instance, Hawaii congresswoman and democractic hopeful Tulsi Gabbard will join Taibbi and Halper for an inaugural interview.
