HAVING A GOOD ONE
Joe Rogan: Media skeptics praised the podcast host and UFC commentator for getting CNN medical expert Sanjay Gupta to make a telling concession about his network’s dismissive coverage of the use of ivermectin as a COVID remedy.
This is such an important exchange. CNN loves to herald itself as vital warriors against disinformation and lies, while vilifying independent voices like Joe Rogan as a plague on our discourse.
Yet here, Rogan all but forces Sanjay Gupta to admit CNN lied about him *on purpose*. https://t.co/mrfjyuPA0v

HAVING A BAD ONE
The Rolling Stones: The aging rockers cut “Brown Sugar” from their setlist over the 1971 classic hit’s references to the slave trade, even though the band’s lead guitarist, Keith Richards, was confused by the controversy, saying the song documents the “horrors of slavery,” not its virtues.
how wild is it that the Stones felt more comfortable performing "Brown Sugar” two years after the assassination of MLK than they do now?
