Joe Rogan To CNN Employee: ‘Do You Think It’s A Problem Because Your News Network Lies?’
This week, Joe Rogan had CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta on his top-rated podcast and called him out for CNN’s lies.
When Rogan recently came down with COVID, CNN pushed a blatant lie that Rogan was taking a drug made for horses, when in fact, he was taking an award-winning medication that had been prescribed for him by a doctor.
In an ultimate irony, many more people will see Rogan’s show than anything on CNN.

Joe Rogan forces Dr. Sanjay Gupta to admit CNN shouldn’t have called his COVID treatment ‘horse dewormer’
Joe Rogan confronted CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta over his network’s claims that the podcast host took “horse dewormer” as a COVID treatment.
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.
“By the way, I’m glad you’re better,” Gupta said.
“Thank you,” Rogan responded. “You’re probably the only one at CNN who’s glad… The rest of them are all lying about me taking horse medication.”
“That bothered you,” Gupta grinned.
“It should bother you too,” Rogan shot back. “They’re lying at your network about people taking human drugs versus drugs for veterinary.”
“Calling it a ‘horse dewormer’ is not the most flattering thing, I get that,” Gupta conceded.
“It’s a lie,” Rogan pushed 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.”
Watch the exchange below:
Rogan is right here, and it’s satisfying to see someone from CNN finally being called out for their lies.
CNN is lucky Rogan didn’t sue them to the moon.

Notes from the editor
The problem here is the fact that CNN lied, they openly admit to it, and did so not to educate the public, they could care less about this, they have a political message to get out, truth, facts, those things matter little, controlling the message is all that matters to them.
Being that I lost someone very dear to me to COVID, I am not saying that the virus is a fraud; I am saying how it is presented to us by the press; Big Tech is full of fraudulent messages. That is done with an eye on the message, not bringing the truth; controlling the information is more critical than the data itself. If they wanted the facts told, they would open up all dissenting voices, let the audience figure out which is correct or not.
This is the problem I have with how the press and government are handling this. We have been repeatedly lied to; they have politicized this until now. We are ostracizing people that aren’t vaccinated and still restricting ones that are. I worry that soon we will start to see people who aren’t vaccinated forced to wear a badge that shows this, very much reminiscent of what the Germans, earlier the Muslims did to us Jews moving us to wear a star to show who we were.
