Popular podcast host Joe Rogan blasted the media for their efforts to squash the Hunter Biden laptop story prior to the election, saying their willingness to “ignore facts” to push a narrative “scares” him.
Rogan’s comments came during a discussion with former CIA covert operations officer Mike Baker over the weekend regarding the legacy media and their love of a good story – just not one that would have been politically damaging to Joe Biden.
“They don’t just love a good story. They love a narrative, and they’re willing to ignore facts to push that narrative. That’s what scares me,” Rogan said.
Rogan went on to state that there are “real solid journalists” out there but he doesn’t “necessarily know if you’re getting all the information.”
Baker joked, “You’re not sure?”
Rogan replied, “I think it’s safe to say that some f***ery is afoot.”

RELATED: Here’s The Stark Difference Between How Media Treated Hunter’s Laptop And The Steele Dossier
Joe Rogan Addresses Hunter Biden Laptop Story
Joe Rogan proceeded to address the Hunter Biden laptop story and the media’s malfeasance in covering up the story.
“The New York Times, just now, is admitting that the Hunter Biden laptop is real. And, we remember from the debates, with Trump bringing it up to Biden, and Biden saying, ‘It’s bulls***.’ And it’s a lie, a flat-out lie. Everybody knew it was a lie,” Rogan said.
As the Political Insider wrote, the New York Times made a casual admission about the veracity of the laptop and contents in a story on Hunter Biden’s tax bill and the federal investigation into his business dealings.
The Times buried the lede well into the article where they discussed having “obtained” emails from “files that appear to have come from a laptop abandoned by [Hunter] Biden.”
“The email and others in the cache were authenticated by people familiar with them and with the investigation,” the Times revealed.

The Media is being called out
The Political Insider also wrote about the comparative media coverage of the Steele dossier, which launched the Russiagate hoax, and Hunter Biden’s laptop at major outlets.
Joe Rogan points out that nothing is improving since the Times’ admission either, noting that “nobody is apologizing” for the media’s efforts to bury the story.
On that note, the New York Post, the outlet that broke the laptop story and the associated scandals of the President’s son, published a column revealing that former senior intelligence officials who signed a letter prior to the 2020 election claiming the story was ‘Russian disinformation’ have all thus far refused to apologize.

“More than a year later, even after their Deep State sabotage has been shown again and again to be a lie, they refuse to own up to how they undermined an election,” the Post column reads.
Richard Grenell, the former Acting Director for National Intelligence has demanded a Senate investigation of those individuals who signed this letter.
Who is going to investigate the media’s role in colluding with Democrats to sway the election?
Gail Collins, a reporter for the New York Times, says that while “Hunter’s behavior was obviously unseemly in the extreme” she never found his behavior to be “criminal — just very, very depressing.”
Perhaps that claim would have taken more time if she hadn’t been aided by her newspaper for almost 17 months.
