Joe Rogan went postal on CNN’s Brian Stelter and the mainstream media for being “told a certain amount of what to do” during an episode of his podcast.
On Thursday’s installment of The Joe Rogan Experience with progressive commentator Kyle Kulinski, the host popped off at a CNN panel for whining that YouTube influencers were getting better views than the network.
“They didn’t even understand the way they were describing it,” Rogan remarked. “They were describing it as if they’re entitled to viewers. They were saying, ‘There are people on YouTube right now that get more views than this show.'”
“This is because the market has spoken and your show’s f***in’ terrible. Well, Brian Stelter’s show keeps slipping and slipping and slipping in the ratings,” he continued. “Same with Don Lemon’s. It’s the same thing. Everybody knows they’re not real. They’re not real humans.”
He went after Stelter for his most recent interview with White House press secretary Jen Psaki when the CNN anchor panderingly asked: “What does the press get wrong when covering Biden’s agenda?”
“How about Brian Stelter talking to the press secretary saying, ‘What are we doing wrong? What are we doing wrong?’ Like, hey motherf***er, you’re supposed to be a journalist!” Rogan said.
“And they wonder why they get no views,” Kulinski replied.
“But it’s not even that,” Rogan went on. “They’re obviously being told a certain amount of what to do.”
Last month Stelter targeted Rogan, suggesting that “woke culture” should cancel him. “On one level it’s just comical hearing this rich and famous guy express worries even though he’s paid to talk for a living, he’s going to be silenced in the future,” Stelter lamented.
