Joe Rogan Responds To Spotify Controversy, Doesn’t Quite Apologize

Joe Rogan has responded to the controversy surrounding his podcast and the apparent boycotts against Spotify. The key issue here is some of the content on The Joe Rogan Experience, namely two doctors who have controversial opinions about the virus. These two men are Dr. Robert Malone and Dr. Peter McCullough. They are widely viewed as experts in their field. So when the mainstream media says “trust the science” and “listen to experts” maybe they’re only referring to a preselected group with approved opinions.

Mainstream media typically refers to Rogan’s podcast as “dangerous” due to “spreading misinformation” about the virus. This appears more like a political attack and less like an expression of concern for the safety of the general public. Rogan is not necessarily a political person and his podcast is not designed to operate that way. He simply invites guests on who speak about their field and other bits of information that come about during a normal conversation. And since Rogan would like to get the best information about the virus out to the general public as possible, he invites experts. Not just those who are “conservative” or those who may already agree with him. He even had on CNN contributor Sanjay Gupta. Interestingly enough, Sanjay pretty much agreed with Joe Rogan throughout his appearance on the podcast. But as soon as he returned to CNN, he did a 180.

The Swedish company in question has an exclusive deal with Rogan to host his wildly-popular podcast. Some estimate the deal Rogan signed with Spotify to be worth over $100 million. Music artists including Neil Young and India Arie have publicly stated that they no longer wish to have their work on Spotify because of Rogan’s presence. They parrot the “spreading misinformation” line. None of these artists have presented anything to debunk the information presented by experts on JRE.

  1. Spotify is evil and anyone who uses the platform nothing more than a dumb tool. They’ve ruined literally tens of millions of people lives. They’re literally non-creative/failed musician internet digital pirates (see: Napster, uTorrent etc., the exact same Spotify founding team members) that stole intellectual property and extorted their way into the music industry to turn a buck and become multi-billionaires in the process, all off the backs of independent creative professional artists that are now bankrupt and flipping burgers to survive instead of making art for their fans to enjoy now and forever (who loses out most on that one huh?).

    On top of that theyre using the platform to data mine and sell personal info to advertising (hence the annual billions of dollars in revenue NOT being shared with non-major label indie artists). And all of this was approved and endorsed by none other than Obama (on the White House website no less!).. the founding owners are nothing more than foreign raiding criminals and should be jailed for life on crimes against humanity. Disgusting.

    To any and all who support Spotify, please do enjoy your India cubicle worker bee AI created garbage “content”.. you truly deserve it now and forever.
