Joe Rogan Accuses CNN of Altering His COVID Announcement Instagram Video: 'Fake News'

Joe Rogan just lit up CNN again with a post.

Back in September when Rogan came down with COVID, he posted a video to Instagram talking about how he had been prescribed a cocktail of things including ivermectin, and he said he recovered quickly.


As we reported back then, liberal media attacked him for talking about ivermectin. CNN lied about him and ivermectin, saying that he took a “horse dewormer” that was meant for “livestock.” They did not say that his doctor had prescribed a drug for him which is used by people, albeit not approved for COVID.

Rogan then had CNN’s Sanjay Gupta on his podcast and ripped him apart for CNN lying about him. CNN issued a deranged statement trying to justify themselves, and Rogan just leveled them again with the truth.

Now, Rogan has posted a video on his Instagram hitting out at CNN for the way he was depicted in their story, contrasting the way he was depicted on CNN, juxtaposed against the Instagram video that he posted, with the words, “Yellow Journalism” and “#fakenews.”

You can see how the CNN version appears to make him look darker, a little distorted and unwell.

I double-checked the CNN version — which you can see on CNN’s site — and yes, it appears darker than the Instagram which you can see here, so you can check it yourself.


Here are my screenshots of one right next to the other:

Apparently, this isn’t the first time that Rogan has raised this point, and the AP fact-checked the claim back in September and ruled there was no evidence of color manipulation in the CNN segment. You can check out what they say, but they don’t explain the clear difference.

“The image was not altered using Photoshop or any filter,” CNN said in a statement emailed to the AP. “The raw upload was ingested using the direct link to Joe Rogan’s Instagram video, which was then cut for TV.”

I leave it to you to decide, then, why the CNN one appears different. But of course, CNN long ago burned any credibility they may have had — and they just keep adding to the bad with their actions.
