In the aftermath of the McChrystal affair, CBS News Chief Foreign Correspondent Lara Logan slams Rolling Stone’s Michael Hastings, which then leads to a scorched-earth rebuttal from Matt Taibbi:
If I’m hearing Logan correctly, what Hastings is supposed to have done in that situation is interrupt these drunken assholes and say, “Excuse me, fellas, I know we’re all having fun and all, but you’re saying things that may not be in your best interest! As a reporter, it is my duty to inform you that you may end up looking like insubordinate douche bags in front of two million Rolling Stone readers if you don’t shut your mouths this very instant!” I mean, where did Logan go to journalism school – the Burson-Marsteller agency?
I should really buy an issue of Rolling Stone sometime. Too bad about the music coverage.
