As CNN rankings proceed to stagger like a House Democrat ingesting Miller Lite, comic Bill Burr doesn’t discover a lot conviction in punching down.
Burr spoke out to criticize CNN’s post-election protection of former President Donald Trump on the Thursday episode of his podcast, Monday Morning Podcast.
Nearly six months faraway from having Trump in workplace, Burr addressed the dearth of consistency with wanting the previous president out of the highlight, but frequently dragging him again in.
“It’s like, do you think these people give a f–k who’s president? They want Darth Vader to come back,” commented Burr. “They want him to come back. Because they had nothing to talk about, because it’s show business, and Joe Biden is a f–king bore.”
Burr stated that the media networks are bent out of practice for ousting its rankings darling from the White House — now caught with ice cream updates on Biden.
“So now what do they do? They’re going on the market, they’re doing what they did the primary time to get this man [Trump] elected, by giving him all this free protection, whereas they act like they allegedly don’t like him. I don’t purchase it. I don’t purchase it. They are a company information channel.
“Do you know what those f–king morons are doing? They’re f–king talking about Trump. I swear … I cannot believe people watch that channel they’re so dumb.”
Reported by OutKick’s Bobby Burack, audiences backing CNN, MSNBC and different shops reliant on opinion journalism throughout Trump’s tenure have plummeted in viewership throughout Biden’s first 100 days as president. Without a villain to cling to, CNN strayed from giving airtime to President Biden and launched protection of Fox News personalities as their new “big bad,” with ends in the pink that might make Jeff Zucker blush.
Still filling their chyrons and articles with Trump-centric critique, talks of a pink wave and normal motion away from radicalized left-wing viewpoints have left main networks with out a connection to its viewers.
Burr even thought-about a tacit assist from the mainstream media for Trump’s return to 1600 Penn so as to relive halcyon days of upper rankings.
“They can’t bitch about [Biden] because he’s wearing a blue tie,” stated the actor and comic.
