'They Suck at Their Job': Joe Rogan Searches for the Reason CNN's Anchors Should Be Fired

At CNN, additional axing appears impending. And Joe Rogan is cheering the chopper.

Per the New York Post in April, a new network boss had remodeling in mind:

Under [new CNN CEO Chris Licht], an executive producer with stints at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and MSNBC’s Morning Joe, CNN is expected to get an overhaul that includes more hard news and less opinion programming, sources told The Post.


That shift has now officially started, with the firing of on-air biggie Brian Stelter.

RedState’s Nick Arama covered the occurrence:

CNN finally pulled the plug on Brian Stelter and his show, Reliable Sources. The show was canceled and he was fired.

Stelter signed off in a final delusional rant in which he depicted himself as some kind of angel of democracy fighting the evil fascists. His last show was the perfect example of why he was properly canceled and booted from the network.

From said inspiring soliloquy:

“It’s not partisan to stand up for decency and democracy and dialogue. It’s not partisan to stand up to demagogues. It’s required, it’s patriotic. We must make sure we don’t give platforms to those lying to our faces.”

Of course, those may not be partisan; but they also aren’t “news.” News doesn’t decide what is decent; it doesn’t determine demagoguery. News purely reports objective facts, not the facts as Brian Stelter sees them. And back to the notion of partisanship, as he’s consistently seen it, “decent” means “Democrat.” A show titled “Reliable Sources”…was anything but reliably news.

In fact, in February, Brian reliably remarked on Joe Rogan — without first finding out what he does. Stelter seemed to believe the comedian casted news:

“[F]gures like Rogan are trusted by people that don’t trust real newsrooms, we have a…problem that’s much bigger than Spotify, much bigger than any single platform…but that is the heart of this right now.”


As for a CNN shakedown broadly, America’s broadest and most popular podcaster has thoughts.

You may recall last September, when the network claimed COVID-positive Joe used “horse dewormer” — known in non-deceptive circles as human medication Ivermectin.

During Friday’s installment of The Joe Rogan Experience, the host said CNN even fooled with his face:

“[O]ne of the things that drove me nuts about when they were so mad at me about COVID — forget about the fact that CNN literally used a filter on my face to make me look jaundiced. … We’ve showed side-by-side clips of the original video that I posted on Instagram… And then they took that and put it through a filter that made me look yellow.”


“But all those people are gone now, which is hilarious,” he continued. “All those CNN people.”

“They’re all on the chopping block. Don Lemon’s on the chopping block. Jim Acosta. They’re all…on their way out, which is hilarious.”

Neither of the aforementioned have been nestled in news.

For years, Jim Acosta was billed as a reporter — a curiosity, given that he was not.

In 2019, Jim released Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America. Via the book, he expressed his distaste for objectivity:

“Neutrality for the sake of neutrality doesn’t really serve us in the age of Trump.”

Don Lemon has nodded to newsiness; in June of last year, he faced facts:

“When I say that the President of the United States (Donald Trump) is a fraud and a con, that was looking at his taxes and how he — and his history of litigation and not paying people. These are all facts. I don’t do opinion. And I know — the difference for me is I do point of view.”


Don, not doing opinion:

This, as Darth Vader’s voice has long told us, is CNN.

And this is Joe Rogan’s “point of view”:

“[T]hey should be (fired), because they suck at their job.”
