Podcaster and UFC announcer Joe Rogan blasted the media's coverage of the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, calling the media a "left-wing cult."
"Bro, this is cult s***. We're in a cult — cult. We're in a cult," Rogan said. "This is a left-wing cult, and they are pumping stuff out — and then they are confirming this belief. They're all getting together, and they are ignoring contrary evidence."
"They're ignoring any narrative that challenges their belief about what happened, and they are not looking at it realistically," he continued. "They are only looking at it like you would look at it if you were in a f***ing cult."
Judge Bruce Schroeder, the judge overseeing the trial, has also criticized the media's coverage of the trial.
"There are people in the media on reputable sites that are saying things that are totally bizarre," he said.
"This was on CNN, Jeffrey Toobin and another attorney there, and a comment was made that the ruling was incomprehensible, and I think they obviously are not familiar with this rule," he said, referencing a rule that stated the prosecution could not refer to the men who were shot as "victims" during the trial but instead could refer to them as "arsonists," "looters," or "rioters."
