Daily Bread for 4.10.23: Good and Bad Argumentation

Good morning.

Monday in Whitewater will be partly sunny with a high of 69. Sunrise is 6:20 AM and sunset 7:31 PM for 13h 11m 39s of daytime. The moon is a waning gibbous with 80.2% of its visible disk illuminated.

The canvass of the recent Whitewater Unified School District election takes place at 1 PM, and Whitewater’s Planning & Architectural Board meets at 6 PM.

On this day in 1998, the Good Friday Agreement is signed in Northern Ireland.

Matt Taibbi became involved in a project of Elon Musk’s to discredit Twitter’s prior management as biased. Musk called this project the Twitter Files to give it a dramatic flair. As it turned out, the Twitter Files project was more bad dinner theater than high drama. 

Watch below, to see what happens when Mehdi Hasan, skilled in argumentation, questions Taibbi about the Twitter Files. (Taibbi has since had a falling out with Musk over recent Twitter policies, but Musk could not have been impressed watching Taibbi stumble again and again in defense of Musk’s supposedly grand project.)

This is what happens when someone skillful (Hasan) debates someone who’s not (Taibbi).
