The battle of back and forth between CNN and top podcaster Joe Rogan returned this week, where Rogan set a reckoning off on the woke supremacist cable network. Rogan and mathematician, James Lindsay, blasted CNN for pushing propaganda out of their news network.
Rogan has had a beef with CNN since the Fake News network reported that he used “horse dewormer” to treat COVID-19 when in the real world he took a human dose of ivermectin that he got a prescription for from his doctor after he caught COVID. And in the usual lockstep, several other Fake News hosts at CNN repeated the claims that Rogan took horse dewormer. This lie and attack on his character forced the famous podcaster to weigh in on if he should sue the network for slander. “Do I have to sue CNN? They’re making s**t up!”
On Wednesday, October 13, Rogan had Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s chief medical correspondent on as a guest, and he got Gupta to admit on the air that “it was improper for the network to claim Rogan took horse dewormer as a COVID treatment. ”
A couple of days later, CNN host Don Lemon had Gupta on and Lemon denied that the network lied about Rogan’s COVID treatment and glossed over the fact that Gupta admitted to Rogan that it was inappropriate for the network to claim Rogan took horse dewormer. At that point, Rogan referred to Lemon as a “dumb motherf*****.”
In early December, Rogan teased the Fake News network’s low ratings and that was before it was reported that CNN lost 90% of its audience from the first week of January 2021 the same week in 2022. “I think CNN is realizing that their ratings are dogs**t – these highly polarizing editorial personalities like Stelter and Don Lemon.”
Earlier this month, Rogan uploaded evidence that CNN distorted his Instagram video announcement of his catching COVID, labeling the network “yellow journalism.” He alleged that CNN went out of its way to make the podcaster appear to me a lot more sick than he let on.
And that wasn’t the end of it. Rogan jumped on CNN again this week when he used the term “knuckleheads” to describe CNN’s opinion-based hosts.
Lindsay added, “They have no credibility left.”

Rogan noted that a former CNN producer who was charged with grooming mothers and their underage daughters to have unlawful sex. That was Chris Cuomo’s producer John Griffin.
Rogan also mentioned another former employee who is under criminal investigation for involving “potential juvenile victims.”
When citing a report that came out last week that CNN’s ratings dropped 90%, he said that the massive drop in their ratings is not because of the scandals that have plagued the cable news network.
“Most people don’t know that, though, most people aren’t aware of it,” he said about the alleged sexual assault allegations against the producers and that the network’s star host Chris Cuomo was fired.
Lindsay added, “Their programming sucks,” and Rogan responded, “It’s not just that it sucks, but it’s preposterous.”
Rogan also addressed something that always bothered me about CNN. “It’s also the smugness in which they disseminate propaganda.”
“People know that they’re full of s**t, and they’re doing it with a smugness and it turns people off,” he said. “It would turn people off even if they were accurate.” He’s exactly right. It’s like a network of study for the Dunning Kruger Effect.
Rogan also pointed out that CNN hosts have “an extreme lack of understanding of human nature,” noting that CNN recently talked about shaming people for not getting vaccinated for COVID-19 or following the restrictions and CDC protocols.
Rogan countered their arguments, “What are you f***ing saying? You’re on the ‘news’ and you’re talking about shaming people?”
Back in September, Lemon told his viewers to start shaming unvaccinated “stupid” people, and to stop “coddling them.”
