Matt Taibbi on the most recent atrocity committed by Mathew Yglesias.
It's kind of not our job in the media to worry about how officials might conduct politically embarrassing conversations without the press finding out. If that's what Matt stays up at night worrying about, he might need a more news-appropriate hobby, like alcoholism.
This election has been eye opening in many ways. I've lost a tremendous amount of respect for friends and acquaintances this year watching them twist and compromise basic principles falling all over themselves to praise the shitty Democratic nominee. At least Yglesias (who, I never had much respect for in the first place) has the excuse of being a careerist hack.  I'm not sure what explains the behavior of people with nothing to gain.
