Joe Rogan had Kyle Kulinski on as a guest for the Thursday episode of The Joe Rogan Experience. At some point in the conversation the discussion turns to CNN and how the network's hosts complained about how YouTubers and podcasters have in many cases eclipsed them in viewership.
In the post-Trump era the likes of Brian Stelter are on a steady decline. From 1.3 million viewers in February to a measly 863,000 viewers last month.
Rogan described the likes of Stelter and Don Lemon as entitled and antiquated. “This is because the market has spoken and your show’s f**king terrible. Brian Stelter’s show keeps slipping and slipping and slipping in the ratings. Same with Don Lemon’s. It’s the same thing. Everybody knows they’re not real. They’re not real humans.”
Kyle Kulinski mentions there are CNN segments where they demand censorship. “They’re like hey please deplatform the people who I don’t like because they’re saying things that are conspiracy theories.”
In the aftermath of the Capitol riots, CNN had Fox News and Newsmax in their crosshairs.
Kulinski says CNN hosts use the term so loosely and apply it to whatever they want (the same can be said about their usage of the phrase “Journalist”).
Rogan chimes in by mentioning how cozy Brian Stelter was with when interviewing White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki. That he actually asked her “what are we doing wrong?”
“Hey motherf**ker, you’re supposed to be a journalist,” Joe Rogan says of CNN’s Brian Stelter.
“They’re obviously being told a certain amount of what to do. And maybe [Stelter] would be an interesting guy if he had his own f**kin’ podcast. If he could just rely on his own personality and be himself.”
“Doubt it,” Kulinski responds.
Don Lemon’s ratings didn’t fare any better after Trump left the White House. He even tried rebranding and that didn’t work.
