During a recent episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” podcast host Joe Rogan spoke briefly about the fallout of Chris Cuomo’s termination from CNN, joking about how Cuomo “should’ve used Signal” or “call the guy” due to Cuomo being caught via some ethically-infringing text messages to help his brother.
Later on during the podcast, Rogan lamented how far CNN has fallen over the years, saying that the network is now just “left-wing propaganda” and a shadow of what they used to be “15,20 years ago.”
“I personally, maybe this is just my bias. I want the news. I want objective news. 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 like this is how I get the news. This is unbiased, professional news; they’re gonna tell me what’s happening in Pakistan and what’s happening in Mogadishu – these are the real journalists that are telling you the news.
Now I look at them; I go, you fucking propagandists. The right arm of Pfizer, like what are you doing, you know? It’s just…I think there’s a market for real news, and it’s really hard to find that now. Really hard, especially outside of independent sources.”
