Matt Taibbi 

When: Wed., Oct. 30, 7:30-9:30 p.m. 2019
Price: $12 advance, $15 door.
In this age of information, the mainstream media trucks in the art of monetizing anger, paranoia, and distrust. Rolling Stone journalist Matt Taibbi looks at to the variety of ways today’s outlets tells lies to keep advertisers. Half rant, half confessional, Hate Inc.: Why Today’s Media Makes Us Despise One Another shows how what most people think of as “the news” is a warped wing of the entertainment industry. As we go into the 2020 election cycle, which promises to be a confusing morass of invective and daily ugliness, Hate Inc. is a panacea to the hidden poisons served up by these corporations — which, despite what we’ve been told, are not people — that we rely on to tell us what is happening in the world.
— D. Scot Miller
