Podcaster Joe Rogan has offered CNN some free advice on how to improve their plummeting ratings and win him back as a viewer.
Rogan highlighted that the American corporate media has a “problem” with him because “more people believe me or trust me or want to listen to me talk.”
“The answer is not to silence me, the answer is for you to do better,” Rogan told the cable “news” network.
“The answer is for you to have better arguments.
“When you’re on television talking about how I’m taking horse paste, and you know that’s not true: ‘He’s taking horse dewormer.’
“What you should have said is, ‘How did Joe Rogan get better so quick? How come he got COVID that’s killing everybody and he was better in five days, negative in five days, working out in six days?’
“How come that’s never discussed?”
Rogan was prescribed a drug by a doctor that is used widely in Africa to treat malaria.
When Rogan had CNN’s own medical expert Sanjay Gupta on his podcast, he admitted the network should not have smeared the podcaster by saying he was taking horse dewormer.
“If you’re in business and your business is the news, and you want to get more people to pay attention, you should be honest,” Rogan said.
“And my thoughts for CNN, my advice to them, I don’t hate CNN.
“I used to go to them every day for the news until they start f*cking hating on me.
“If you want to do better, just f*cking change your model, change the way you do it.
“Stop this editorial perspective with guys like Brian Stelter and Don Lemon that nobody listens to.
“Nobody is like chiming in saying, ‘Oh, yeah, finally we get the voice of reason.’
“Nobody thinks that.
“Have people that give out effective news, objective news, rather, and I’ll support you,” Rogan concluded.
“I would turn around 100% and I’ll be one of the people that tells people, ‘I saw this on CNN, watch this on CNN.'”
