“Fake news” CNN regularly pushes lies that they themselves call “misinformation.”
However, they are never confronted about their lies—with the exception of when President Trump shredded CNN’s Jim Acosta during press conferences.
But that changed this past week when CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta appeared on The Joe Rogan Experience.
And boy, did Gupta get the full Rogan Experience.
He sat down for an over three-hour interview with the podcast icon, and Rogan let Gupta and CNN feel his wrath, and in the process, spoke for many Americans—especially conservatives—who disdain the “most trusted name in news.”
Rogan took issue with CNN’s coverage of his battle with COVID-19 early last month. The network, along with many other Left-leaning outlets, reported that Rogan had taken a “controversial horse de-wormer” known as Ivermectin, implying that he was taking a drug used strictly for veterinary care and setting a dangerous example for his fans.
However, that is not true. CNN peddled false information and Joe Rogan called them on the carpet for it.
And poor Sanjay Gupta took the brunt of Rogan’s fury.
The New York Post reported
“They shouldn’t have said that,’ Gupta said of the network referring to the medication as a “horse dewormer.”
‘By the way, I’m glad you’re better,’ Gupta told the podcast host.
‘Thank you. You’re probably the only one at CNN who’s glad … The rest of them are all lying about me taking horse medication,’ Rogan replied.
‘That bothered you,’ Gupta said.
‘It should bother you too,’ Rogan replied. ‘They’re lying at your network about people taking human drugs versus drugs for veterinary.’
Gupta acknowledged that ‘calling it a ‘horse dewormer’ is not the most flattering thing.’
‘It’s a lie,” Rogan shot back. ‘It’s a lie on a news network … and it’s a lie that they’re conscious of. It’s not a mistake. They’re unfavorably framing it as veterinary medicine.’
‘It can be used for humans! I get it,’ Gupta said.
‘Not just could be used for humans, is often used for humans along with all the other drugs that I took. All human drugs,’ the podcast host said. ‘They know it’s a human drug and they lied. It’s defamatory.’
‘Yeah, they shouldn’t have done that,’ Gupta replied. ‘I don’t know if it’s defamatory.’”
And boom goes the dynamite! CNN just got owned!
Also, what is with the media and their disdain for any COVID treatment that isn’t the vaccine?
Shouldn’t they cheerfully tout any drug that helps people recover from the virus?
Inquiring minds would like to know.
And the fake news network is feeling the sting. Americans are tired of their untruthful reporting and their post-Trump loss of direction.
Their ratings are in the toilet.
According to Fox News, “CNN had a dismal September, failing to reach 1 million viewers on any of its programs for 23 out of the 30 days in the month, equating to a staggering 77% of the time according to Nielsen data.
Last September, in the final weeks of the 2020 election, CNN averaged 950,000 total day viewers. This September, the network averaged just 557,000, a 41% drop. Primetime viewership was virtually cut in half during the same time period from a 1.5 million average to just 770,000.”
This is what happens when a network routinely peddles false information.
And that is why CNN deserved the full Joe Rogan Experience.
