Podcast personality Joe Rogan tore into CNN on his podcast The Joe Rogan Experience, saying the network is “realizing their ratings are dogs**t.”
And that’s just him getting started.
“I think CNN is realizing that their ratings are dogs***,” Rogan said. “[They have] these highly polarizing editorial personalities like Stelter and Don Lemon.”
“I want the news. I want objective news,” he continued. “I want someone to tell me what are the facts of what’s going on? And what’s happening? I don’t want your ideological slant. I don’t want this left-wing propaganda network, which is what CNN has become. The way I look at CNN now is so differently than the way I looked at CNN 15-20 years ago. I used to look at them as like, this is how I get the news. This is unbiased, professional news. They’re going to tell me what’s happening in Pakistan and what’s happening in, you know, Mogadishu. These are the real journalists that are telling you the news.”
“Now, I look at them, I’m like, you f***in propagandists, like, what are you, the right arm of Pfizer?” he added. “Like what are you doing? You know? It’s just a, I think there’s a market for real news. And it’s really hard to find that now. It’s really hard, especially outside of independent sources.”
