No one doubts that HBO’s Bill Maher is a committed card-carrying liberal.

But he is a traditional liberal who has been speaking out against woke cancel culture.

And Bill Maher is not afraid of going after CNN for being “boring” because they won’t let go of this narrative.

Bill Maher, who in addition to hosting his Real Time show on HBO, also hosts the Club Random with Bill Maher video podcast, took a shot at CNN during a recent conversation with Katie Couric.

CNN’s non-stop Trump bashing is boring

Maher said that CNN’s non-stop hatred of former President Donald Trump is getting “boring.”

Though Maher is himself a renowned Never Trumper, he thinks it might be time, especially for CNN, to move on to other topics.

Fox News Digital reported that CNN, which continues to experience a shrinking viewership, has relied on Maher to keep the network afloat.

Fox pointed out that the troubled cable news outlet is airing episodes of Maher’s HBO show on Saturday nights. 

And of course, both CNN and HBO are owned by Warner Bros. Discovery.

Even though Maher agrees with CNN on most issues, he told Couric that he no longer trusts “anyone” in the media anymore. 

That clearly includes CNN and other left-wing corporate media outlets. 

“I don’t trust that anyone is giving me the full story,” Maher said. “Everyone is giving me their spin on the story, including the places that used to be, I thought, fairly neutral, like CNN and the New York Times, I think, used to be a lot more neutral.”

Couric asked, “You think they’re sort of more activists?”

“Yes,” Maher responded bluntly. 

“You could always slant any story. … My earliest memories of my father and me talking about something … I remember him telling me like … the bias comes through somehow, and I remember the examples he used. He said, like, ‘If you say he squawked about it, as opposed to what he said.’ Then he said, Robert Kennedy, so this must have been before ‘68 when he was killed. I was definitely under 12. He said, ’Robert Kennedy, if you like him, he is dedicated. If you hate him, he is ruthless.’ But it got worse.”

“And it got to the point where each side thinks they have to load their issues because we can’t really be trusted with both sides because the other side is so powerful and such an existential threat, they both think the other side is an existential threat. We just have to do everything we can — we can’t trust them to make sure they have the one true and correct opinion,” Maher continued.

Couric defends the mainstream media

But Couric defended the mainstream media, claiming Trump was responsible for the end of “decorum” and a “level of basic decency” throughout the country.

And Maher seemed to agree with Couric’s comment.

“For a place like CNN, I have total sympathy with them for that,” Maher said. “It was an impossible choice. Either you pretend that this is just the other side of normal, left, right, Republican, Democrat, or you start calling him a liar. … I think the world needs a great CNN, so I’ll do everything I can to help that organization. And they still do some great stuff and have some great people. I still tune to it when something happens.”

But Maher then moved on to CNN’s coverage of a Trump town hall, with a live audience filled with Republicans and independents who “loved it” at the same time anchors at the networks hated it.

“Here’s what people saw in America. They saw Trump killing it, killing it with the crowd. Then you cut to a panel of six people who all just do nothing but dump on him and call him a liar. And America goes, ‘Oh, didn’t you just see that we like him?'” Maher said.

“The people loved him and what he was saying. Then you cut to a panel of six know-it-alls in Washington who just do nothing but talk about the negative. I’m all in on the negative. No one’s been harder on Trump than me. I get it, and I’m bored with it. There’s a different way to do this, I think.”
