Joe Rogan called out the media over its coverage of COVID and riots, arguing that they’re “not the f***ing propaganda department.”

During “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast on Wednesday, the host told his guest, former MTV DJ/podcaster Adam Curry, that modern politics is similar to tribalism. Rogan said humans have always wanted “other people to think and behave exactly the way you do.”

“You’re willing to overlook some awful s*** on your side. And you’re willing to exaggerate some s*** on the other side,” the host shared, as he compared it to how mainstream media covers riots.

“Mostly peaceful! Oh, it’s mostly peaceful that burning,'” Rogan explained. “I f***ing saw someone again say this because of what happened in Atlanta and they were calling it mostly peaceful.”

“You’re not the f***ing propaganda department, you can’t define things in a way to calm people down,” he added. “That’s not what your f***ing job is. But you’re bulls****ing people, you’re acting as a propagandist. It’s not ‘mostly peaceful’ when a car is on fire.”

“In CNN’s backyard,” Curry added.

Earlier, Rogan noted that there were a “lot of people” that said “trust the science” when it came to COVID and the vaccine. The host said, “if the data’s being controlled by certain people that have a vested financial interest in controlling the data, in controlling the narrative, that’s not science.”

Curry said it was “telling” when CNN falsely claimed that Rogan took horse dewormer to combat COVID, as previously reported.

“What was really telling was when you were being accused of eating horse paste, and then you had [CNN’s Dr.] Sanjay Gupta on and you said, ‘Why the f*** did they lie about that?’ and he could not answer,” Curry shared. “His brain could not process the question.”

“Someone should come along that does what they [media] do, but do it in a way where you’re not lying,” Rogan said. “Where you’re only giving information. The uncomfortable information that people probably don’t want to hear. You’re just giving them data … but don’t do it in a way where you’re bulls****ing people.”
