Matt Taibbi talked about his book, The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap. He detailed many of the problems surrounding Wall Street, including the questionable acts of some of the notable banking CEOs such as Richard Fuld, formerly of Lehman Brothers, and Jamie Dimon of JP Morgan Chase. He contrasted the lack of prosecution and jail time they and others in their income bracket face in comparison to those who cannot afford the high-priced legal teams those people hire. He also talked about the controversial situations he has gotten himself into, like throwing a pie spiked with horse semen into a New York Times editor’s face; writing “The 52 Funniest Things About the Upcoming Death of the Pope” in 2005; and his article “Death of a Douche” on the day of conservative reporter Andrew Breitbart’s death in 2012. He described his career as a Rolling Stone journalist and his new venture as an editor and writer for a startup online publication by First Look Media. close
