In a 4,000-word article that dominates the second issue of The Beast, co-editor Matt Taibbi says Jamie Moses wasn't happy about "Artvoice Death Toll at 7," an article in the Beast's inaugural issue which lampooned the AAN paper "for spending money on a color cover instead of on starving children abroad," or another that ridiculed Moses' physical features. Taibbi spent the past five years as an editor of eXile, an English-language biweekly newspaper published in Moscow "that among journalists acquired a reputation ... for being quite possibly the world's most outrageous and mean-spirited newspaper."
