I'm familiar with and like Taibbi's past work. I partly mentioned him hoping to get a response from Dissident, who mentioned him previously.
I'm a bigger fan of Greenwald, following him since our harbor boy once linked us to one of his Salon articles long ago. From my view, he never waivers in his understanding of right and wrong. The ever-drifting political climate makes him the darling or enemy of the political left or right at any given time. For me, that is definitely someone to reference. For me, that is also the definition of someone who never sells out. Just one sick-deviant's opinion.
It's good to share varying opinions. It makes others think for themselves.
