Sanjay Gupta: I Had to Go Into the Lion’s Den with Joe Rogan

Rogan confronted CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta on a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience.

It’s highly unlikely that podcaster Joe Rogan will feel compelled to get vaccinated against COVID-19 anytime soon.

Rogan confronted CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta on a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience. The two squared about issues related to the virus Rogan’s use of ivermectin.

Rogan pushed back against skeptics who have called ivermectin a horse dewormer. “Calling it a ‘horse dewormer’ is not the most flattering thing,” said Gupta.

“It’s a lie.” “It’s a lie on a news network … and it’s a lie that they’re conscious of. It’s not a mistake,” Rogan said, referring to CNN’s recent reporting about Rogan’s COVID diagnosis. “They’re unfavorably framing it as veterinary medicine.”

As you can imagine, Gupta is under tremendous scrutiny from the left for sitting down with Rogan in the first place.

Gupta classified his appearance on Rogan’s show as a “futile” attempt to convince him to get the vaccine.

“I realized that if I was serious about trying to communicate about public health, I needed to go to a less comfortable place,” Gupta wrote on CNN’s website. “I needed to go into the lion’s den and accept an invitation to sit down with Joe Rogan for more than three hours.”

Emerald Robinson’s Days at Newsmax Are Numbered

According to the information, Newsmax will be tapping former Fox News chief D.C. correspondent James Rosen to take over the role.

Newsmax’s White House reporter Emerald Robinson could be counting her days with the network as The Daily Beast reports that there’s a replacement lined up to replace Robinson. 

According to the information, Newsmax will be tapping former Fox News chief D.C. correspondent James Rosen to take over the role. Rosen is currently a political reporter for Sinclair Broadcasting Group.

Twitter banned Robinson following a tweet regarding the COVID-19 vaccine stating that it carries a “bioluminescent” tracking device with satanic powers. As a result, the social media platform handed her a seven-day suspension.

The network would then pull her off any on-air duties, and then after her suspension was over it resulted in the permanent ban from Twitter. 

The Daily Beast spoke to a current staffer who stated that the consensus view amongst Newsmax employees is that “she’s just going to be gone” but “nothing definitive.” Another source told the media outlet that Robinson is almost unquestionably done with Newsmax. 

Furthermore, two sources also told The Daily Beast that Newsmax is negotiating with Rosen to become their new chief D.C. correspondent. “Unfortunately, we cannot comment on personnel issues,” a Newsmax spokesperson stated on the report.
