Comedian Russell Brand tackled the topic of CNN’s coverage of the controversy over podcaster Joe Rogan and Spotify and roasted Brian Stelter in the process.
Brand’s criticism of the lack of good faith on the network has gone viral, sparked especially by the actor and podcaster’s hilarious impression of Stelter. The video has racked up millions of views on different viewing platforms including YouTube where it was posted on February 3 and has been watched more than 1.5 million times as of this writing.
“CNN’s Brian Stelter said this week that because of Joe Rogan ‘winging it’ people have stopped trusting ‘real newsrooms’. Could another explanation come from the media trying to push us towards WWIII?” the description reads on YouTube for the more than 12-minute full video.
