"They Shouldn't Have Said That": CNN's Sanjay Gupta Admits Network's Rogan/Ivermectin Coverage Was Wrong
The admission came after Rogan pressed the issue on his latest podcast episode with Gupta.
A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article called “The Hysterical Joe Rogan Ivermectin Coverage Is Exactly Why People Don't Trust Media Anymore”. You can read my analysis of precisely why and how the media has lost its collective mind here:
The point of the article was to shine light on just how brazen CNN's efforts were to do nothing more than drum up hype and lie about Joe Rogan, who admitted after getting a positive Covid test, that he took ivermectin along with monoclonal antibodies.
This week, Rogan had a chance to finally confront someone from the network when he played host for Dr. Sanjay Gupta, who appears on The Joe Rogan Experience to chat about public health, Covid, the nation’s distrust in scientists and his network.
Rogan wasted no time in calling out Gupta, and his network, for lying about him several months ago. "They lied and said I was taking horse dewormer," Rogan said to Gupta.
While Gupta starts trying to change the subject, Rogan eventually backs him into a corner. "If you got a human pill, it shouldn't be called that," Gupta is forced to concede.
Rogan then asked Gupta: "Does it bother you that the news network you work for out and out lied? They outright lied about me taking horse dewormer."
"They shouldn't have said that," Gupta blurted out in response.
"Why did they do it?" Rogan asks.
"I don't know," a defeated Gupta says.
Gupta then took to his home field, CNN, to have a laugh with Don Lemon, who was running damage control about the entire interview. Amidst Lemon’s snide and dismissive attitude toward many of Rogan’s valid points, he also denied ever calling ivermectin horse dewormer.
This, of course, is total bullshit.
Finally, here is a clearly uncomfortable Gupta admitting that CNN "shouldn't have said that”:
