Popular podcast host Joe Rogan absolutely savaged CNN pundit Brian Stelter in an episode Thursday, mocking him for the network’s ratings, and his show, in particular, saying it’s “f***ing terrible.”
The segment began with Rogan discussing a previous panel discussion on Stelter’s show in which they discussed YouTube stars having more viewers than CNN, something the Stelter’s of the world consider a terrible thing.
“They were describing it as if they’re entitled to viewers. They were saying, ‘There are people on YouTube right now that get more views than this show,'” Rogan recalled.
“This is because the market has spoken and your show’s f***ing terrible,” he fired off. “Well, Brian Stelter’s show keeps slipping and slipping and slipping in the ratings.”
The on-air beating of Brian Stelter’s career by Joe Rogan wasn’t over with at that point.
Rogan pivoted to a much-discussed interview Stelter conducted with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, in which Stelter was universally torched for his fawning approach to the questioning.
“What does the press get wrong when covering Biden’s agenda?” a doe-eyed (dough-eyed?) Stelter asked of Psaki.
“How about Brian Stelter talking to the press secretary, ‘What are we doing wrong? What are we doing wrong?’” Rogan fired back. “Like, hey motherf***er, you’re supposed to be a journalist.”
To be fair, the only one who believes Stelter is a journalist is Stelter.
Rogan slipped in a jab at Stelter’s colleague, Don Lemon, over his ratings slipping for good measure.
“So is Don Lemon’s. It’s the same thing,” Rogan continued. “Everyone knows they’re not real. They’re not real humans.”
The podcast host went on to suggest that Stelter is simply a puppet with somebody else pulling his strings.
“They’re obviously being told a certain amount of what to do. And maybe he’d be an interesting guy if he had his own f***ing podcast that you can rely on his own personality and be himself. I don’t know,” Rogan wondered. “I can’t imagine doing that gig.”
After a verbal beat down by Joe Rogan, you almost have to feel bad for CNN’s Brian Stelter.
And it gets worse.
Earlier this week, The Political Insider reported that Stelter, host of CNN’s media show “Reliable Sources,” failed to crack the 1 million mark in viewership for the 11th straight week.
Prior to that, Stelter made an appearance on C-SPAN in which caller after caller appeared on the show referring to him and the network he works for as liars.
Legendary journalist Ted Koppel in 2018 predicted CNN’s current predicament telling Stelter and his network their “ratings would be in the toilet without Donald Trump.”
Stelter fought back against the famed journalist’s assertion, to which Koppel responded by condescendingly stating it must be a “sensitive subject” for him.
CNN reporter Jim Acosta recently admitted that journalists are suffering from “post-Trump stress disorder” since Biden entered the White House.
Their ratings reflect that reality.
And activists like Brian Stelter getting obliterated by Joe Rogan and his younger crowd of followers isn’t going to help.
