The laughable commentary from Omar Jimenez launched a thousand memes, and deservedly so.
You’d assume a military of media reality checkers, together with The Poynter Institute, may come down arduous on CNN’s laughable protection. A fast Google search on the topic revealed extra curiosity in capturing the foundation causes of the protests and fears of utilizing loaded language greater than the cartoonish protection.
Leave it to Joe Rogan to select up the media slack. Again.
Rogan laughed at CNN’s latest “largely peaceable” spin, this time geared toward a protracted Antifa assault following a shootout that left a police officer wounded and one among their very own lifeless.
The violent group known as for a day of rage to protest the dying, and the anti-free speech motion delivered.
That led a CNN panelist to spin the violence. Hard.
Despite scenes of shattered buildings & a hearth from an explosion, MSM has once more sought to downplay the violence of the far-left assault in Atlanta. @CNN interviewed @DavidPeisner, a good friend of the deceased gunman who helps fundraise on his behalf. https://t.co/dfiUNee8B6

The Post Millennial captured the mayhem.
Footage from the riots exhibits the Atlanta Police Foundation being smashed, native companies being vandalized, and police vehicles being set on fireplace.
Rogan, together with visitor Adam Curry, wasn’t having CNN’s lies, and it’s clear they knew it wasn’t the primary time the far-Left community tried a stunt like this.
“You’re prepared to miss some terrible s— in your facet, and also you’re prepared to magnify some s— on the opposite facet,” he stated, including, “You’re not the propaganda division. You can’t outline issues in a approach to calm folks down. That’s not what your f—ing job is. You’re bulls—ing folks. You’re performing as a propagandist. It’s not largely peaceable when a automobile’s on fireplace.”
TheWrap.com, which reported on Rogan’s critique however nonetheless felt uneasy doing so, referred to his feedback as a “rant” 3 times.

The greatest irony? Antifa’s violence occurred in Atlanta, the town CNN calls residence.
“You need to f—ing fake that these folks lighting church buildings on fireplace aren’t f—ing a–holes. These folks lighting colleges on fireplace, lighting courthouses on fireplace.”
Rogan, like fellow podcaster Adam Carolla, is a relentless critic of the mainstream media. It’s one among many causes the MMA announcer has constructed a large following for his Spotify showcase.
He even corrects his errors on air. We’re nonetheless ready for each main media outlet’s mea culpa for the Russian collusion protection.
When reporters aren’t prepared to share the reality, audiences hunt down different voices. Even if it’s a burly stand-up comedian who cracks sensible for a residing.
