CNN Buries Viral Moments of Joe Rogan Grilling CNN Chief Medical Correspondent to His Face

CNN doesn’t want you to see this.

The liberal TV network’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta sat down for a three-hour interview with comedian and UFC commentator Joe Rogan.

CNN praises Gupta for sitting down for “daring to sit down with podcast giant Joe Rogan, but the liberal network largely ignored some of the most viral moments from the three-hour interview,” according to Fox News.

In the viral clips, Rogan has the CNN health expert stumbling over simple questions.

“This is why Rogan is so popular,” one person responded on social media.

“He’s just a simple man asking simple questions ‘experts’ can’t answer.”

Watch the clip:

CNN anchor Erin Burnett asked Gupta, “Do you feel like you broke through or that he will ever embrace the vaccine?”

“I don’t think so… I hate to say that, but he was very steadfast in this,” Gupta responded.

Gupta proceeded to trash Rogan, accusing him of “convincing” himself of sticking to a “particular narrative” about the vaccine.

Fox News notes that CNN was “very selective on which exchanges it chose to highlight.”

In one clip that received over 1 million views, Gupta couldn’t answer Rogan’s questions over the risk for a vaccinated adult of getting terribly sick with COVID versus an unvaccinated young child amid the debate of vaccine mandates for children.

CNN anchor Don Lemon also attempted to lecture Rogan over his hesitancy to get the vaccine.

Lemon also falsely accused Rogan of taking “horse dewormer” called ivermectin when Rogan previously contracted the virus.

Gupta admitted that his CNN colleagues should not have described his COVID treatment that way.

More from Fox News:
CNN also published a lengthy essay written by Gupta on how he had entered the “lion’s den” despite having “friends” discouraging him to do so but wrote, “I am still glad I did it.”

The essay, predictably, did not go into detail about Rogan’s use of ivermectin and CNN’s false characterization of the treatment.

Beyond Lemon, no one else on CNN mentioned ivermectin in the coverage of the Gupta-Rogan showdown, according to Grabien transcripts.

Meanwhile, Rogan’s viral exchange with Gupta over CNN’s coverage of him received over 5 million views on Twitter.

On Thursday, “New Day” co-host Brianna Keilar and John Berman rolled out the red carpet for Gupta.

“I’m so glad you did this because there are so many people who can listen to the sense that you make,” Keilar told Gupta.

“Sanjay, you’re a prince,” co-host John Berman grinned. “I don’t know where you get your patience. I really don’t. A remarkable display of calm and patience there.”

CNN anchor Jim Sciutto praised Gupta for appearing to have “made some progress” in converting Rogan to the pro-vaccine movement.
