Comedian Joe Rogan has shaken the entire left-wing political establishment to its core, including former President Barack Obama.
Rogan, who is known for hosting a podcast where he gets high and talks about aliens, has dared to ask questions and hold discussions about coronavirus.
Liberals accuse Rogan of spreading “misinformation” because he invited highly credentialed physicians on his podcast, which includes cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Robert Malone who owns nine patents on the creation of mRNA vaccine technology.
This has resulted in a collective meltdown for the Left.
Numerous high-profile figures have expressed outrage and announced boycotts against Spotify, which hosts Rogan’s popular podcast.
Former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama are reportedly considering leaving Spotify, Daily Wire reports.
The Obamas’ have a three-year deal with Spotify, but its coming up for renewal.
Industry sources told Insider that the Obamas haven’t made a decision yet about renewal.
“Heavy hitters like Amazon and Apple could compete for the Obama’s business because they have upped their investments in podcasts,” the report says.
The Obama’s team at Higher Ground is “frustrated with the slow pace of development at Spotify, where it can be hard to get a greenlight,” the report said. “One source said Higher Ground’s pitches don’t always align with the platform’s focus on shows that can reach a wide audience.”
In response to liberal outrage and numerous boycotts, Spotify announced that it will be making some changes. The platform will begin attaching a ridiculous warning label to content that is triggering liberals.
There will be a “content advisory to any podcast episode that includes a discussion about COVID-19.” The platform is also creating a “coronavirus information hub.” Spotify will also begin “testing” new ways about how they can “raise awareness around what’s acceptable” and “help creators understand their accountability.” You can read more about those changes here.
Rogan, who hosts the country’s most popular podcast, has responded that he agrees with these changes. He also said “moving forward he thinks he could do a better job of having more experts come on his show with different opinions.”
Rogan currently averages 11 million listeners per episode and reaches far more people than networks like CNN and MSNBC combined.
CNN only recorded over a million viewers in its primetime slots in 2021 while MSNBC averaged 1.53 million.
Rogan recently explained the controversy began because liberals are upset about “dangerous misinformation” that came from two episodes.
He explained that one episode was “with Dr. Peter McCullough and one with Dr. Robert Malone. Dr. Peter McCullough is a cardiologist, and he is the most published physician in his field in history. Dr. Robert Malone owns nine patents on the creation of mRNA vaccine technology and is at least partially responsible for the creation of the technology that led to mRNA vaccines. Both these people are very highly credentialed, very intelligent, very accomplished people and they have an opinion, that’s different from the mainstream narrative. I wanted to hear what their opinion is.”
“I had them on and because of that, those episodes in particular, those episodes were labeled as being dangerous, they had dangerous misinformation in them,” Rogan continued.
“The problem I have with the term misinformation, especially today is that many of the things that we thought of as misinformation just a short while ago are now accepted as fact, like, for instance, eight months ago, if you said, ‘if you get vaccinated, you can still catch COVID and you can still spread COVID,’ you’d be removed from social media, they would they would ban you from certain platform,” he said.
“Now, that’s accepted as fact. If you said, I don’t think cloth masks work, you would be banned from social media. Now that’s openly and repeatedly stated on CNN. If you said I think it’s possible that COVID-19 came from a lab, you’d be banned from many social media platforms – now that’s on the cover of Newsweek. All of those theories that at one point in time were banned, were openly discussed by those two men that I had on my podcast that had been accused of dangerous misinformation.”
