Politics & Life Sciences (PLS) with Dean L. Fanelli, Ph.D.

Feb 4, 2022

While podcast commentator Joe Rogan continues to ignite controversy as a source of false claims about the COVID pandemic, the roots of such widespread falsehoods are examined in a recent investigative report. Journalist Alex Kotch, co-author of the report “How the Koch Network Hijacked the War on Covid,” tells the story of how that corporate-bankrolled campaign originally started and how it has continued to supplant public health experts and hijack the governmental response to the pandemic. The report was produced by a partnership of the Center for Media and Democracy and The Daily Poster. Alex Kotch is senior investigative reporter at the Center for Media and Democracy and co-founder and executive director of the OptOut Media Foundation.
