The media may soon regret its Fake News assault on Joe Rogan.
The podcast giant spends most of his time interviewing eclectic guests and ruminating on his favorite topics.
- UFC fighting
- Stand-up comedy
He’s added a new topic to his podcast arsenal – media bias. And he sounds as passionate about it as his love of marijuana or a clean roundhouse kick.
It unofficially began when media outlets, including CNN, excoriated Rogan for taking Ivermectin to treat COVID-19. The Nobel Prize-winning medication isn’t officially sanctioned to treat the virus. Many doctors suggest it has no benefits for the infected.
That wasn’t the angle reporters took, though.
They claimed Rogan ingested “horse dewormer,” one of the medical uses for Ivermectin. It’s a highly misleading charge, especially since Rogan says his own doctor prescribed the drug for him.
Among the "kitchen sink" of medications Joe Rogan says he has taken following his COVID diagnosis is the horse dewormer ivermectin. https://t.co/z4YfS3q7Vd

Boy, did Rogan shred reporters who promoted that Fake News angle, including CNN’s own Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
To his face.
Now, Rogan is turning to the obvious collusion between the Democratic Party and the mainstream press. There’s no better example than the Hunter Biden laptop story, first broken by The New York Post.
That bombshell revealed the future president’s son held shaky business deals with direct ties to “the big guy” AKA Joe Biden.
Not only did Big Tech platforms suppress the fact-based reportage, media outlets rallied to do the same. NPR smugly said the report was “discredited by U.S. intelligence and independent investigations by news organizations.”
That’s false, and Rogan said as much on a recent podcast with guest Jocko Willink, an author and retired Navy SEAL.
