The hosts of “The Leer” were largely supportive of CNN’s Sanjay Gupta, after he sat down for an hours-long interview with Joe Rogan for his podcast — other than for Sunny Hostin. The host admitted she didn’t rather sight the point.
The women purchased into it on Thursday’s episode, debating whether or now no longer Gupta’s look on the podcast had the aptitude, now no longer to commerce Rogan’s anti-vax stances, but to maybe commerce the minds of a few of his listeners. Each and each visitor hosts Ana Navarro and Sherri Shepherd agreed that, with 200 million listeners a month — one thing Joy Behar change into once shy to hear — even altering a minute percentage of that fanbase’s thoughts on COVID vaccines is probably going to be worthwhile.
“I give them both kudos, because a selection of cases I feel folk slouch to shops where they don’t conform to clutch fights and change into click bait. I judge folk attain to this show to clutch fights with us and then sell extra books or procure extra viewers,” Navarro mentioned. “[Rogan and Gupta] had a truly civil conversation that lasted three hours, and I judge it change into once unprecedented, and I judge it’s principal to procure perception onto what these forms of folk that we disagree with on the vaccines are thinking and why they’re hesitant.”
Nonetheless on that argument, Sunny Hostin did now no longer agree. In her notion, these who don’t belief science don’t must be heard out.
“Sanjay mentioned he went there to label his thinking. I love Sanjay, we labored together — we dilapidated to impact these clinical apt segments on CNN — Sanjay is a mighty man,” Hostin smartly-known, sooner than getting blunt. “I’m now no longer so drawn to figuring out the Trump mind. I’m now no longer so drawn to figuring out the anti-vax mind. Because I’m now no longer drawn to figuring out crazy. I don’t judge you would possibly presumably maybe maybe construct sense of crazy.”
That mentioned, Hostin remained the outlier by the stop of the section.
“I love that Sanjay Gupta went on there because, in case you don’t slouch on there and proper consult with any individual you disagree with, then we would possibly presumably maybe never maintain to any extent additional or much less discourse,” Shepherd mentioned, prompting Hostin’s irritated response.
