Earlier this week, comedian and podcaster Joe Rogan told his followers that he had been diagnosed with COVID-19 on August 26. By the time he posted the video three days later, he was feeling much better. The media had a field day framing Rogan as anti-vaccine because of earlier comments he made that questioned the need for young, healthy people to get vaccinated.
What sent them entirely over the edge was Rogan stating that he took ivermectin in addition to several other medications. The media and a bunch of Twitter blue checks decried his use of a “horse dewormer.”
Joe Rogan posted a video to social media in which he revealed that he has COVID-19. The comic and popular podcast host said he took Ivermectin, a dewormer meant for horses that is “not authorized or approved by FDA for prevention or treatment of COVID-19" https://t.co/AJbQ049nYH pic.twitter.com/Kse7tUuMr7

NPR, funded by you, went with “deworming drug for cows”:
The podcast host Joe Rogan, who has dismissed COVID vaccines, said he tested positive and is taking a cocktail of unproven treatments — including ivermectin, a deworming drug for cows that the FDA warns people should not ingest.https://t.co/ydGjahao4k

These geniuses, including the execrable Dr. Leana Wen on CNN, might want to take note of the CDC’s “Overseas Refugee Healthcare Guidance.” This chart outlines presumptive care for parasite treatment:
The media is telling a partial truth to try and scare people out of using ivermectin during the early treatment of COVID-19. If you wonder what the corporate media’s vested interest is, think about how many pharmaceutical commercials you see while watching cable news. They are not disinterested observers.
