Podcast host Joe Rogan accuses CNN of lying by claiming he took a horse dewormer to treat COVID-19.
During one episode of his podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience,” CNN chief medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta said, “The dewormer’s horse isn’t an enticing thing, I get that.”
“It’s a lie, it’s a lie on a news network, and a lie they’ve come to realize. That is not a mistake. They do not want to frame it as veterinary medicine, ”Rogan replied.
Gupta said the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sent out a “snarky” tweet about the veterinary version of ivermectin that read, “You’re not a horse, you’re not a cow” and urged people to “stop the taking of this matter. “
However, Rogan said that ivermectin is also taken by people and asked, “Why would they lie and say that’s horse dewormer? I can handle drug people, mom *** er. It’s funny. It’s just a lie. . ”
He asked, “Don’t you think a lie like that is dangerous on a news network when you know they know they’re lying?”
“Do you think that’s a problem that lies with your news network?” Rogan pressed.
Gupta asked what the network said was not true. Rogan explained that CNN reporters claimed he was taking a horse dewormer. He added that a doctor had prescribed ivermectin to him.
The medical correspondent replied, “They shouldn’t have said it was [horse dewormer]. If you get a human pill, because there are people who take medicine at the Veterinary… and you don’t clearly get it from a doctor, then it shouldn’t be called that. “
Rogan asked, “Does it bother you that the news network you work in and out of lied, outright lied about me getting a horse dewormer?”
“They shouldn’t have said that,” Gupta said.

Rogan, who is not a medical expert, distributed in September that he contracted the coronavirus and “immediately threw it in the kitchen sink, all sorts of med.”
He revealed that one of the drugs he was taking was ivermectin, which health experts had warned against taking as treatment for the virus.
According to the FDA, ivermectin is “approved for human use to treat infections caused by certain parasitic worms and head lice and skin conditions such as rosacea.”
CNN told Jim Acosta in September that Rogan was “taking the dewormer ivermectin.”

While the FDA approved Ivermectin for human use, it warned that it has not “authorized or approved ivermectin for use in the prevention or treatment of COVID-19 in humans or animals.”
The agency also said studies have not found ivermectin to be effective against the coronavirus and that taking large doses is dangerous.
In addition, the FDA said there was an “animal ivermectin” that was “very different from those approved for humans.”
“The use of animal ivermectin for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19 in humans is dangerous,” it added.
The FDA said, “The most effective way to limit the spread of COVID-19 include getting a COVID-19 vaccine when it is available to you and following current CDC guidelines. “
