I don’t know anything about what I want to know. What do I want to know? I want some reporter to penetrate the Taliban. Who in the fuck is the Taliban? You know? I’ve been reading “Taliban” for two years, more than that. No one has gotten to know a Taliban family. What does he eat? What does his girlfriend do? Who are the enemy? All we get is bashing of Putin, bashing of China.
It’s just not a noble profession. Journalist are not giving the American people enough information that is counter to what the government wants to shove down your throat. The only people that really should be credited are in self-exile. Julian Assange and Snowden.
