Taibbi at an [[Occupy Wall Street]] protest in 2012 Matthew C. Taibbi (; born March 2, 1970) is an American author, journalist, and podcaster. He has reported on finance, media, politics, and sports. He is a contributing editor for ''Rolling Stone'', author of several books, co-host of ''Useful Idiots'', and publisher of a newsletter on Substack.

Taibbi began as a freelance reporter working in the former Soviet Union, including a period in Uzbekistan, from where he was deported for criticizing President Islam Karimov. Taibbi later worked as a sports journalist for the English-language newspaper ''The Moscow Times''. He also played professional baseball in Uzbekistan and Russia as well as professional basketball in Mongolia. In 1997, he moved back to Russia to edit the tabloid ''Living Here'', but eventually left to co-edit rival tabloid ''The eXile''. Taibbi returned to the United States in 2002 and founded the Buffalo-based newspaper ''The Beast''. He left in 2003 to work as a columnist for the ''New York Press''. In 2004, Taibbi began covering politics for ''Rolling Stone''.

In 2008, Taibbi won a National Magazine Award for three columns he wrote for ''Rolling Stone''. In 2019, he launched the podcast ''Useful Idiots'', co-hosted by Katie Halper. In 2020, he began self-publishing his online writing, while still contributing to the ''Useful Idiots'' podcast and the print edition of ''Rolling Stone''.

Taibbi has authored several books, including ''The Great Derangement'' (2009); ''Griftopia'' (2010); ''The Divide'' (2014); ''Insane Clown President'' (2017); ''I Can't Breathe'' (2017); and ''Hate Inc.'' (2019).

Taibbi is known for his brazen style, having branded Goldman Sachs a "vampire squid" in a 2009 article. His work often has drawn comparisons to the gonzo journalism of writer Hunter S. Thompson, who also covered politics for ''Rolling Stone''. Provided by Wikipedia
