Podcast superstar Joe Rogan laid into CNN contributor Sanjay Gupta during Gupta’s appearance on Rogan’s podcast. Gupta ended up admitting that CNN’s coverage over Rogan’s previous embrace of alternative treatments for Covid-19 had been improper.
As Fox News reports:
On Wednesday’s installment of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” Rogan grilled the doctor on why someone like him who already had COVID and has antibodies should get vaccinated.
“Why would they lie and say that’s horse dewormer?” Rogan asked. “I can afford people medicine motherf—er. It’s ridiculous! It’s just a lie! Don’t you think that a lie like that is dangerous on a news network when you know that they know they’re lying? … Do you think that that’s a problem that your news network lies?”
“Does it bother you that the network you work for out and out lied, just outright lied about me taking horse dewormer?” Rogan grilled Gupta.
“They shouldn’t have said that,” Gupta admitted.
