Matt Taibbi: Everything Is Rigged, The Biggest Price-Fixing Scandal Ever

May 9, 2013

Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone joins us to discuss his latest piece, Everything is Rigged: The Biggest Price-Fixing Scandal Ever. In the interview we discuss, how there is no secret conspiracy because all these scandals out in the open, how the ones making the rules are the ones breaking the rules, and Eric Holder’s doctrine of collateral consequence means the elite have no accountability while the rest of us are of little consequence.

In the better half, we look at the poor fundamentalist Christians who believe they are the minority and are being bullied, blacks voting at higher rates than whites for the first time ever in 2012, and the fast food strikes spread to St. Louis! All that, more AND your calls and IMs!

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
