How do you define bothsiderism again?

In the sense that I am using it here it means false equivalency.

Elevating one view to prominent that is not actually held by the field of study that covers the topic in question.

Giving a flat earther equal time, young earth creationism or general anti-vaccine folks.

Particularly with little push back on any of their points. Rogan is more likely, at least in my few listening, to buy into the counter point than anything else it seems and is pretty terrible about actually understanding.

That is not to say that some of those groups cannot have important questions, but all of this is highlighted by the stuff he is being hammered for. Casting doubt on various parts of COVID and potentially contributing to costing people their lives.

Which is more significant than a flat earther.
