CNN’s chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gopta was confronted by Joe Rogan over claims made that the podcast host had used “horsedewormer” to treat COVID.
Rogan interviewed the doctor Wednesday on “The Joe Rogan Experience” to find out why someone such as him, who has COVID and antibodies, should be vaccinated.
Gupta stated, “By and the way I’m glad that you’re healthier.”
Rogan said, “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.”
JOE ROGAN BLASTS MEDIA LIES ABOUT HIS COVID TREATMENT: ‘DO I HAVE TO SUE CNN?’
Gupta smiled, “That bothered,”
Rogan replied, “It should concern you too.” Rogan replied, “They lie at your network regarding people taking human drugs and drugs for veterinary.”
“Calling it a ‘horse dewormer’ is not the most flattering thing, I get that,” Gupta conceded.
Rogan responded, “It is a lie.” “It’s a lie on a news network… and it’s a lie that they’re conscious of. They are not making a mistake. The unfavorable framing of it is veterinary medicine.
Gupta related to the FDA’s “snarky” statement that said “You aren’t a horse.” Rogan continued to call out CNN’s coverage on a drug that has been “given to billions, billions of people”, and led to a Nobel Prize.
“Why would they say it was horse dewormer? Rogan asked. “I have the money to afford medicine for my family.” This is absurd! This is a complete 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?”
“What did they tell you?” Gupta asked.
Gupta was first to tell Gupta his ivermectin had been “prescribed by me by a physician,” prompting the CNN correspondent, who said the drug “shouldn’t be called horse dewormer.”
Rogan quizzed Gupta, “Does that bother you?”
Gupta said, “They shouldn’t have said that.”
“Why did they do it?” Rogan asked.
Gupta said, “I don’t understand.”
You didn’t want to ask. It’s the guy who is going to be treating you, Rogan. Rogan exclaimed.
Gupta replied, “I did not ask.” “I should’ve questioned before joining this podcast.”
JOE ROGAN TORCHES CNN’S BRIAN STELTER: ‘HEY MOTHERF—ER, YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO BE A JOURNALIST’
Gupta refuted Rogan’s claims that CNN had made these claims with “such joy” and played a clip in which “OutFront,” anchor Erin Burnett called ivermectin “livestock drugs.”
Gupta replied, “I don’t think Erin was gleeful.”
Rogan responded, “Well it was more Brian Stelter, who was the gleeful,” referring to CNN’s leftwing media guru. It’s all a lie.
You can use it for people! It’s possible,” Gupta, who was uncomfortable, exclaimed.
The podcast host stated that not only could it be used to treat humans, but the drug is also used in combination with other medications I have taken. The podcast host stated that all human drugs are included. It’s not a human drug, they know this and have lied about it. It’s defamatory.”
Gupta reaffirmed, “Yesh, they shouldn’t have done that.” It’s not defamatory, I don’t know.”
Rogan stated, “I’m betting it is.” Rogan said, “It is a lie.”

Rogan immediately criticized CNN for not reporting that he was negative after undergoing treatment.
“My point was that you are working for a news organisation. They are lying to us about Russia when they say that a comedian took horse medication. They are telling us what they think about Syria. Are you aware that this is why many people are concerned about news accuracy? Rogan again pressed Gupta in front of the CNN correspondent. He said that he didn’t take horse dewormers.
