“Tested negative today,” Rogan announced Friday on Instagram, accompanied by a picture of a test device showing the absence of SARS-CoV2, the official name of the novel coronavirus.
The response by the corporate media to Rogan’s initial announcement prompted a number of critical takes. Novelist Walter Kirn quipped that Rogan committed the “unpardonable crime of recovering rather quickly from Covid.”
Actor Matthew Marsden said the reaction to Rogan’s experience “exposed the increasingly nasty and irrational side of people on social media” and ended the “charade about them saying this is all…about the well-being of others.”
Rogan has drawn establishment ire by arguing that young and healthy people may not need Covid vaccines and no one should be forced to take them. He has called the vaccines safe and encouraged people to take them voluntarily, but has opposed mandates, pushed by many state and local authorities around the US with the tacit approval of the federal government.
