Comedian and Podcaster Joe Rogan provided advice to former President Barack Obama on Thursday’s edition of “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

While discussing presidents with his guests Louis C.K. and Joe List, the conversation shifted to Obama and his ability to host a podcast, referencing to the former president’s show “Renegades: Born in the USA.”

“He did a podcast for a little while. He did a podcast with Bruce Springsteen and it just wasn’t good. It just — it just wasn’t good,” Rogan said. 

“Well, it’s not that he couldn’t be good. It’s just that he’s this — he’s bigger than everything, you know, he’s the greatest president ever. When he goes and does a podcast, he can’t just have a whiskey and talk shit. You know, but if he did, it would be f–king amazing.”

Rogan continued by saying Obama has already served two terms as president, so the 61-year-old can’t run again, so the former president should lose the politician act and loosen up. 

“You would think he’s achieved escape velocity where he could express himself. I mean, he’s done two terms. He can’t be president again. So you’re free of that expectation,” Rogan said.

“I remember he was talking about people once about how messy people are, you know, that just — things people say, things they don’t necessarily mean … And the way he said that, I’m like, I’ve never heard a person like him say that. And I wish he did more of that. You know? I wish someone could talk to him and get him to loosen up.”

Keith Olbermann: American Journalism ‘Re-Invented’ During Trump Presidency

“The overwriting principle used to be: get a scoop, get in the paper or on the air as soon as possible because that’s your job, and that’s your only actual value to society as well.”

During his Countdown with Keith Olbermann podcast Friday, the former cable news host slammed a recent opinion from Politico’s John Harris that Americans need more journalists like Maggie Haberman, among others.

Olbermann has been critical of Haberman’s decision to withhold important facts in relation to the former President Donald Trump and save them for her upcoming book rather than report them in The New York Times.

“What Harris does not understand is American ‘journalism’ did re-invent itself,” Olbermann said. “The overwriting principle used to be: get a scoop, get in the paper or on the air as soon as possible because that’s your job, and that’s your only actual value to society as well. It is also — and I speak as somebody who broke a lot of sports news including the Wayne Gretzky trade and Michael Jordan’s first dalliance with a comeback — it is the joy of doing the journalism. You have the story, and nobody else does!”

He continued by saying Harris and Haberman believe the point of American journalism is not to inform the public but rather how much money you can make in the process.

Haberman’s book “Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America” is expected to hit bookshelves on Tuesday, October 4th.

Former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is joining his brother Chris in the news media world as the politician is launching a political action committee and a podcast. 

“I am starting a political action committee to elect the right people to office,” Cuomo said (h/t CNN). “We do not need more panderers. We need producers. We need people committed to fight for change and who get results.”

The video also featured familiar criticism of social media, which he has often blamed for fueling the backlash the led to his resignation, which effectively halted state lawmakers’ plans to impeach and remove him from office.

“It’s a Twitter mob, but the mob has power and many politicians and press are afraid to challenge it lest the mob turn on them,” Cuomo added. 

Cuomo’s podcast intends to dive into what he believes is the truth and how the platform will differ from what is already out there. 

“This forum will be different. My intention is to speak the full truth, unvarnished, from the inside out, frank and candid,” Cuomo said. 

“As a person who’s been in the room many times for many years and knows these people and knows their games, and as a person who actually did the job.”

“I just think that she’s a bit cray-cray,” she added. 

Osbourne left CBS in 2021 after a stint on “The Talk.” She said she was never approached to sit on “The View.”
