Joe Rogan has recently recovered from COVID-19.
But while he was sick, the media and the left didn’t send their well wishes.
Instead, they appeared to criticize Rogan and ivermectin.
It appears that CNN may have taken things a step further.
CNN is being accused of manipulating video fo Joe Rogan to make him look sicker than he really was.
I used to work more directly in photo and video editing, and this does look to me like CNN dropped the saturation a bit and bumped up the yellow a couple steps pic.twitter.com/0lz9vEm68U

Do people actually still believe CNN is a reliable news source? This is not objective reporting: https://t.co/Org8YbjWhz

‘Bro, Do I Have to Sue CNN?’ Joe Rogan Rages at Network and Jim Acosta, Claims They’re ‘Making Sh*t Up’ About His Use of Ivermectin https://t.co/zBbi0FORKJ

A side-by-side comparison between Rogan’s original video and the video that CNN published looks clearly different.
Rogan’s skin tone appears to be a different color.
Some may even argue that the color was edited on purpose to make Rogan look bad!
According to the Western Journal:
CNN can’t stand that Joe Rogan recovered from COVID.
If the renowned podcast host had appeared sicklier, if he had not taken ivermectin as a treatment (which worked, according to him), then his story would have fit CNN’s fear-mongering COVID narrative.
But the truth rarely conforms to CNN’s narratives.
So, as is often the case, CNN had to make its own “truth.”
In order to do so, the network manipulated a video of Rogan to make him appear sicklier than he actually was.
A side-by-side comparison of Rogan’s original video with CNN’s version shows some shocking differences.
It appears as though CNN dropped the video’s saturation and upped the level of yellow in order to make Rogan appear jaundiced.
At least one published study has shown that bilirubin levels (bilirubin being the main cause of jaundice) appear much higher in patients with COVID-19.
It makes sense why CNN would want to do everything it could to discredit Rogan’s video — after all, everything he says in it totally debunks their narrative.
In the video, Rogan shares the story of how he got COVID.
After getting home from a road trip, Rogan began to feel various symptoms — weariness, a headache, fevers, cold sweats and so forth.
Then, upon getting tested and learning he had contracted COVID-19, Rogan “threw the kitchen sink at it,” administering a whole host of potential medications, including the media’s least-favorite COVID treatment — ivermectin.
From there, it didn’t take long for Rogan to recover: The comedian first felt symptoms on Saturday and had essentially recovered by Wednesday.
“Here we are on Wednesday, and I feel great. I really only had one bad day — Sunday sucked. But Monday was better, Tuesday felt better than Monday and today I feel good,” Rogan said.
Rogan ended the video by issuing a “wonderful, heartfelt thank you to modern medicine for pulling me out of this.”
What Rogan’s story tells us is largely what we already know: If you’re healthy, if you don’t have any serious pre-existing conditions and if you take various COVID-19 treatments, your chances of suffering severe COVID symptoms are incredibly low.
CNN can’t let the truth get out, however.
If it turns out that Rogan’s image was edited, this wouldn’t be the first time that the media has manipulated images of conservatives.
President Trump was the target of such attacks.
It was common for media outlets to edit pictures of President Trump to make him look more orange.
Some even called this type of editing “orange face.”

If the media can’t even accurately show you images, how can you expect them to accurately report the news?!
The Independent confirms that a TV station editor was even fired for editing Trump to l0ok orange, fatter, and sick:
A segment of the president’s Oval Office speech on Tuesday evening was altered to make the 72-year-old languidly stick his tongue out during a pause. It also made him appear more orange.
Seattle-based Fox affiliate Q13, which broadcast the footage, said after launching an investigation it had fired an unnamed editor who did “not meet our editorial standards”.
“We regret if it is seen as portraying the president in a negative light,” spokesperson Erica Hill added.
It is not clear if the editor was responsible for doctoring the video, or simply airing footage altered by somebody else.
KIRO, a Washington radio station, posted on its website side-by-side videos, showing the discrepancies between the original and doctored footage.
In Mr Trump‘s televised address, the president attempted to stoke fears over illegal immigration and convince Americans of the need for a US-Mexico border wall.
Attempting to cast the issue as a national emergency, he went into graphic detail about murders and violent assaults committed by a tiny number of illegal immigrants.
He also railed against gang violence, drug smuggling and human trafficking, and attempted to put responsibility for a partial government shutdown at the feet of Democrats in Congress.
This is why the American people don’t trust the media!
Why can’t they just report the truth instead of editing it?!
