If you watch the video it wasn't about vaccines. CNN repeatedly claimed Rogan took a "horse dewormer" when he actually took Stromectol that was prescribed to him by a doctor. Brand is asking why a news organisation would take such a stance.
Who cares. A slight fudge as a fu** you.

Best of luck to Brand. Him and Dore have both gone after anti-vaxx clickers and it's working for them.

But they are unserious people.

That's not an argument in defence of CNN.

You sound like a Trump fan who can't defend his malfeasance so simply insists it doesn't matter.
Meh. If people focus on this as an example of media bias rather than the litany of substantive things that corporate news contort and frame, have at it.

It's tabloid sh*t fight.

Again, that's not a defence of CNN.

Joe Rogan claims CNN misled its audience in an attempt to make him appear ridiculous. There are plenty of legitimate criticisms of Rogan but his complaint against CNN seems legitimate in this instance.

You don't appear to disagree. You're saying only that it doesn't matter, which really has nothing to do with the facts.

It’s just…so what. Maybe it’s a lie, maybe it’s them not knowing, maybe it’s them having a dig.

They’re a corporate media org that has assumed an anti Trump posture as a marketing exercise. They di worse everyday

I feel like my previous post covers this.

The point is that Rogan appears to be making a valid criticism in this instance.

Your response is "so what?"

That's not really an argument either way.

That's a separate question.

I think it's perfectly legitimate to present the evidence (or lack of evidence) on that point. If CNN had stuck to that, they'd be on solid ground.
Yes, it's a question.

Joe Rogan has been promoting it. Do you think that might be why CNN took the piss out of him?

Again, that's not the issue.

Has Rogan really been "promoting it"? Can you cite an example of him urging other people to take it?

CNN is being criticised for claiming invermectin is a horse dewormer when it's in fact an anti-parasitic agent that can be prescribed for humans. That's simply a fact.

By all means, question its efficacy as a treatment for coronavirus. But to describe it as a horse dewormer, when it can be prescribed for humans, is misleading. That's the criticism. And even Sanjay Gupta conceded the point.
