Matt Taibbi Confesses to Forcing Employees to Perform Sexual Favors

Matt Taibbi claims the Exile is satire, he’s lying and I can prove it.

A book co-authored by Matt Ames and Matt Taibbi is loaded with fun stories like this, “We have been pretty rough on our girls. We’d ask our Russian staff to flash their asses or breasts for us. We’d tell them that if they wanted to keep their jobs, they’d have to perform unprotected anal sex with us.”

Matt Taibbi is claiming that The eXile, from which that above passage appears, is satire. He’s lying, as Google Books shows.

The inside cover to The eXile reads: “This is a work of non-fiction.. all of the characters and events depicted in this book are real.” — Matt Taibbi

Despite The eXile being marketed as non-fiction, Taibbi yesterday wrote:

While the events described are not a biographical reality, this is not to say I don’t have regrets about the eXile, which was conceived as a giant satire, whose purpose was to be an ongoing embarrassment to the expatriates who came to Russia to spread the American way.

Again, that’s not what Taibbi said when he released the book. Again, see for yourself:

“This is a work of nonfiction. While all of the characters and events depicted in this book are real, certain names and identifying details have been changed.”

Matt Taibbi also threw a cup of of hot coffee on a reporter who told Matt that The eXile wasn’t a good book:

“Yes, the Exile book. I thought it was redundant and discursive and you guys left out a lot of the good stuff you did,” I said.
At this, Taibbi’s mouth turned down and his eyes narrowed.
“Fuck you,” he snarled, and then picked up his mug from the table, threw his coffee at me, and stormed out.

That’s an awfully emotional response over a “satirical” book.

Taibbi is unhinged:

He walked up to me, glaring, beside himself with rage.
“Fuck you!” he yelled. “Did you bring me here to insult me? Who are you? What have you ever written? Fuck you!” I tried to talk to him, but gave up when he walked away. I went back inside, paid the bill, left, and began walking up Sixth Avenue. Halfway up the block, I turned around, and Taibbi was behind me.
