CNN political commentator Mary Katharine Ham sided with podcast giant Joe Rogan, who accused her employer of “lying” about his use of ivermectin during his bout with the coronavirus.
Rogan generated a social media firestorm this week after he confronted CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta on “The Joe Rogan Experience” over his network’s false claims Rogan consumed “horse dewormer” instead of the human form of ivermectin prescribed by a doctor, forcing Gupta to admit his CNN colleagues should not have said that.
Ham took to Twitter on Friday responding to Dr. Rob Davidson, a frequent CNN guest who claimed Rogan “pulled a ‘gotcha'” on Gupta on the subject of ivermectin.
“Rogan is right that it’s dishonest to say he took horse dewormer when he did not,” Ham tweeted, refraining from calling out CNN by name. “It was irresistible to dunk on him for a lot of people, so they went with that instead of sticking to ‘hey, this anti-parasitic isn’t recommended for COVID treatment,’ which would’ve been credible.”
