CNN is tanking in the ratings game.
The network can’t stand that podcaster Joe Rogan dwarfs them in audience size.
And Rogan sent a chill down CNN’s spine by asking one question.
Joe Rogan recently recovered from COVID-19, which wouldn’t have been a big story under normal circumstances.
But it became a national story because Rogan was unvaccinated, and he said he took the drug Ivermectin among other prescribed drugs.
As soon as Rogan mentioned he took Ivermectin, the Leftists’ heads collectively exploded.
Multiple outlets reported that Rogan took “horse dewormer” because Ivermectin can be used to treat animals, but there is also a human form of the drug, which was awarded a Nobel Prize in 2015 for curing river blindness.
During a recent episode of his podcast, Rogan floated the idea of suing CNN for defamation and lying that he took the animal version of the drug.
Podcaster Joe Rogan asks whether he should sue CNN for saying he took horse dewormer:

CNN has no defense because the network has to know that Ivermectin is administered in human form.
Instead, they chose to publish fake news simply to discredit Ivermectin and Rogan himself.

Any and all potential therapeutic treatments for COVID have been viciously attacked by the corporate press.
Hydroxychloroquine, which also has been in use for decades, showed promise as a therapeutic, but was mocked as “fish tank cleaner” by the press.
It’s bizarre that the Left is going out of its way to shoot down possible treatments for a global pandemic.
