Again, that's not the issue.

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.
Is it really that bad that CNN run with an FDA approved meme, to highlight Rogan's stance on Ivermectin?

My point is that Ivermectin has become part of the culture wars, partly due to Joe Rogan shilling it.
Has he been "shilling it"? Can you cite an example of him urging other people to take it?

Do you accept that when CNN described invermectin as a horse dewormer, that was inaccurate?

It can be prescribed to humans. Even Sanjay Gupta conceded this point.

Just address this basic point of fact.

Why do you give a free pass to Rogan for misinformation, while at the same time attacking CNN for it?

I don't give him a free pass.

I've criticised Rogan plenty of times for allowing his audience to be misled. I think that is one of his major shortcomings as a broadcaster.

In this instance, though, his criticism of CNN appears to be valid. Does that constitute "attacking CNN"?

Do you see how I assess the information and then draw a conclusion based on that? You should try it some time.

He is sometimes referred to as the gateway to alt-right

Alt-light perhaps?
I don't get that at all. Is it just coz he's happy to have pretty much anyone on, and people might start following the Alex Jones' of the world because they appeared on Rogan?

Not that I listen religiously, but the only real right-wing positions I've heard him espouse are on guns and hunting. Not a fan of antifa either I suppose (but you can be left wing and still not have much time for them). On pretty much everything else I reckon he's clearly left wing, social issues certainly.

Exactly their "approval is worthless"

A trump fan becoming a moderator here one day is now when I think about it a stupid idea for rejoining this site, motivation gone
