JOE ROGAN: 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.
SANJAY GUPTA: Well the FDA put this thing out you saw that? It was a tweet, and it was snarky, I'd admit it. They said you were you are not a horse. You are not a cow stop taking this stuff.
ROGAN: Why would you say that when you are talking about a drug that has been given out to billions and billions of people? A drug that one of the inventors won a Nobel Prize in 2015. 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?
GUPTA: What did they say?
ROGAN: They lied a said I was taking horse de-wormer. First of all, it was prescribed for me by a doctor along with a bunch of other medications.
GUPTA: They shouldn't have said that. If you got a human pill, because there were people taking the veterinarian medication, and you are not obviously you got it from the doctor. It shouldn't have been called that. Ivermectin can be a very effective medication against parasitic disease and I think a quarter billion people taken it around the world.
ROGAN: More, way more. Billions of people.
GUPTA: Can I just come back to.
ROGAN: No, no. Before we get to that, Does it bother you that the network you work for out and out lied, just outright lied about me taking horse dewormer?
GUPTA: They shouldn't have said that.
ROGAN: Why did they do that?
GUPTA: I don't know.
ROGAN: You didn't ask? You're the medical guy over there!
GUPTA: I didn't ask, I should've asked before coming on this podcast.
Hey CNN defenders on ivermectin/Rogan:@DonLemon said "he is taking several medications including a drug meant for deworming livestock.” @ErinBurnett said "he was treated with several drugs, and he included ivermectin on the list, a drug used for livestock.”— Steve Krakauer (@SteveKrak) October 14, 2021
Those are lies.
And the chyrons on those shows the night Rogan made his announcement were also blatant lies. https://t.co/RezxPEqL0A— Steve Krakauer (@SteveKrak) October 14, 2021
