At present, the woke mob is throwing the kitchen sink at Joe Rogan and more particularly his affiliation with the popular music and podcast publisher, Spotify where Rogan’s podcasts are primarily viewed.
Controversy was sparked when Rogan platformed infamous virologist and self proclaimed inventor of MRNA vaccine technology Robert Malone. Malone has dedicated his life’s work to virology and vaccine research, but is skeptical of the current COVID-19 vaccine.
Rogan allowed Malone to voice his concerns during an episode of the Joe Rogan experience on Spotify.
Now, Meghan Markle and former member of the Senior Working Royal Family Prince Harry have begun slinging mud in Rogan’s direction.
Harry and Meghan in 2020 signed a deal with Spotify for their own podcast under their newly founded Archwell brand. The pair recently told Fox News that Rogan’s show was concerning.
“Since the inception of Archewell, we have worked to address the real-time global misinformation crisis. Hundreds of millions of people are affected by the serious harms of rampant mis- and disinformation every day – Last April, our co-founders began expressing concerns to our partners at Spotify about the all too real consequences of COVID-19 misinformation on its platform. We have continued to express our concerns to Spotify to ensure changes to its platform are made to help address this public health crisis.” A statement read.
80’s folk singer Neil Young also requested that his music catalogs be removed from Spotify whole sale. Spotify promptly complied as Google searches for “who is Neil Young” skyrocketed. The washed up vocalist likely realized short after what little impact his tantrum had.
The liberal media and woke mob paint Rogan’s as a one sided misinformation machine, seeking to police information at all costs. The truth is, Rogan brings very politically diverse individuals on his show to provide his audience with alternate perspectives on things.
Rogan in the past has platformed far right conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones, but also far left socialist like Bernie Sanders. Ahead of the 2020 election, the popular podcaster and UFC commentator even pledged his vote to Sanders.
Rogan, unlike so many others appears to be truly devoted to indiscriminately platforming idea’s from all sides. As he has repeatedly said on the air, the only way to combat bad speech, is with better speech.
