Popular podcast host Joe Rogan slammed CNN and other left-wing corporate media outlets for their biased coverage of his recovery from COVID-19 in his first show since contracting the disease, debunking media claims that he took “horse dewormer” to fight COVID. In reality, he was prescribed ivermectin by multiple doctors.
“Bro, do I have to sue CNN?” Rogan asked. “They’re making sh*t up, they keep saying I took horse dewormer, I literally got it from a doctor, it’s an American company, they won the Nobel prize in 2015 for use in human beings, and CNN is saying I’m taking horse dewormer. They must know that that’s a lie.”
Rogan also stated, “But what [the media] didn’t highlight is that I got better, they tried to make it seem as if I was like doing some wacky s**t that’s completely ineffective and CNN was saying that I’m a distributor of misinformation.”
Rogan first revealed that he had contracted COVID and recovered in three days using a cocktail of ivermectin, IV drips, multivitamins and other drugs in a video posted to Instagram last week, enraging mask fans and booster shot devotees:
“Hello friends. So, I got back from the road Saturday night feeling very weary, I had a headache I just felt, just run down and just to be cautious, I separated from my family, slept in a different part of the house and throughout the night I got fevers and sweats and I knew what was goin’ on,” Rogan stated on Wednesday. “So I got up in the morning, got tested, and turns out I got COVID.”
“So we immediately threw the kitchen sink at it, all kinds of meds, monoclonal antibodies, ivermectin, Z-Pak, prednisone, everything,” Rogan continued. “Uh, and I also got an NAD drip and a vitamin drip and I did that three days in a row. And so, here we are on Wednesday, and I feel great. I really only had one bad day, Sunday sucked, but Monday was better, Tuesday felt better than Monday, and today I actually feel good. I feel pretty f**king good. Uh, that’s the good news. The bad news is we have to move the Friday show in Nashville.”
Rogan’s use of ivermectin sparked a broader wave of misniformation from corporate media claiming the drug is exclusively used as a horse dewormer.
