In 2019, Taibbi wrote a chapter for his self-published book, Hate Inc., titled “Why Russiagate is this generation’s WMD”. Michelle Goldberg in the New York Times criticized Taibbi’s assertion that “the biggest thing [the investigation] has uncovered so far is Donald Trump paying off a porn star” as “silly.”
On April 6, 2020, Taibbi announced he would no longer publish his online writing through Rolling Stone, and would henceforth independently publish his online writing through the e-mail newsletter service Substack. He will continue to contribute print features for Rolling Stone and maintain the Useful Idiots podcast with Katie Halper. Taibbi’s decision was independent, and he was not asked to leave Rolling Stone.
In 2017, Taibbi came under fire for excerpts from a chapter in the book written by Ames that described sexual harassment of employees at The eXile. In a 2017 Facebook post responding to the controversy, Taibbi apologized for the “cruel and misogynistic language” used in the book, but said the work was conceived as a satire of the “reprehensible” behavior of American expatriates in Russia and that the description of events in the chapter was “fictional and not true”. Although the book includes a note saying that it is a work of non-fiction, the publisher, Grove Press, has since said that the “statement on the copyright page is incorrect. This book combines exaggerated, invented satire and nonfiction reporting and was categorized as nonfiction because there is no category for a book that is both.” Women portrayed in the book have gone on record to defend Taibbi, stating that none of the sexual harassment portrayed in the book “ever happened.”
In 2018, Taibbi began publishing a novel, The Business Secrets of Drug Dealing: Adventures of the Unidentified Black Male, as a serialized subscription via email and a website with an anonymous partner. The novel is fictional with true-crime elements.
Journalist Kathy Lally wrote in The Washington Post in December 2017 that she and other female journalists were subjected to misogynistic attacks by Taibbi and Ames while she was a correspondent in Moscow in the 1990s. Lally contacted Taibbi in 2017, and he told her, “I certainly would not go about things now the way I did back then,” and “I apologize for the physical descriptions. That was gratuitous and uncalled for.”
