Comparing And Contrasting

 Comedian Joe Rogan attended the University of Massachusetts Boston. He has said that he found it "pointless," so he dropped out. 

Doctor Anthony Fauci attended the College of the Holy Cross, graduating in 1962 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in classics with a pre-med track. Fauci then attended medical school at Cornell University's Medical College where he graduated first in his class with a Doctor of Medicine degree in 1966. He then completed an internship and residency in internal medicine at the New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center.

Comedian Joe Rogan has appeared in numerous television shows, most notably NewsRadio from 1995 to 1999 and the game show Fear Factor from 2001 to 2006. He has also appeared on stage as a standup comic since 1988. 

Doctor Fauci joined the National Institute of Health and the National Institute for Allergies and Infectious Diseases in 1968, became head of the LCI's Clinical Physiology Section in 1974, and in 1980 was appointed chief of the NIAID's Laboratory of Immunoregulation. In the early 2000s he was involved in creating the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief  and in driving development of biodefense drugs and vaccines following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Comedian Joe Rogan has his own podcast, downloaded more than sixteen million times a month.

Doctor Anthony Fauci has served six presidents of the United States, starting with Ronald Reagan.

Comedian Joe Rogan was suggested by former president and gameshow host Donald Trump as a moderator for a debate between himself and Joe Biden. 

Comedian Joe Rogan recently said about COVID-19 vaccinations, “Are you healthy? Are you a healthy person? Like, look, don't do anything stupid, but you should take care of yourself. You should  if you're a healthy person, and you're exercising all the time, and you're young, and you’re eating well, like, I don't think you need to worry about this.” 

Doctor Anthony Facui replied, "You're talking about yourself in a vacuum. You're worried about yourself getting infected and the likelihood that you're not going to get any symptoms. But you can get infected, and will get infected, if you put yourself at risk.”

If you can't make up your mind about to whom you should be listening on matters of infectious diseases, take if from a guy who writes his own daily blog: Get vaccinated.
