In recent years, the mainstream media has shifted more toward the left, becoming an asset of the Democratic Party while spreading lies about conservatives. Some left-leaning outlets have begun to tell others how to vote, such as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) CEO Dana White, who didn’t take such a request too lightly and called out the media over its political bias.
White recently delivered a scathing rebuke of the media during an appearance on Barstool’s “Bussin’ With The Boys” podcast.
While responding to a question about how he has adapted to media and technological changes over the years that have influenced his business, White said he likes to talk to fans and consumers without a “middle man,” as reported by BizPac Review.
“Realistically, when you look at it right now, the two most hated people on the planet right now are the media and politicians,” the UFC CEO said. “Nobody trusts them, nobody likes them.”
White continued by saying that the mainstream media has less power than it thinks it does, adding that the attacks on his business by leftist media outlets, along with the media’s indoctrination role during the COVID-19 protests, opened his eyes as to how the media operates.
The UFC CEO said that the media should not be able to influence another person’s choices and called out the “cancel culture bullsh—t.”
White also noted that the media was wrong when it said that his fighting promotion company, Power Slap, would fail.
“If the media tells you you’ve got something that is going to fail, it’s definitely going to f—ing win,” he said.
.@danawhite has spent a large part of his career being told he will fail but that never stopped him
“If the media tells you, you have some thing that’s gonna fail, it’s definitely gonna f*cking win”

The media has long blasted White because the UFC CEO is a friend and staunch supporter of former President Donald Trump. Notably, in 2020, Trump asked White to speak at the Republican National Committee (RNC), which, of course, happened.
White’s feud with the media has gone on for a long time. The UFC CEO recently hosted Trump at UFC 295 and posted a video of the former president at the fighting event online. Later that night, White received a phone call from one of his fighting company’s sponsors, who told him that he needed to remove the video of the former president at the fight.
During a recent podcast episode hosted by comedian Theo Von, White explained how the phone call went.
“I posted a video of Trump on my personal social media. One of our big sponsors called and said, ‘Take that down.’ You know what I said? ‘Go f—k yourself,’” White said. “You vote for whoever you want to vote for, and I’ll vote for whoever I want to vote for. That’s how this works.”
