Doctors and scientists ask Spotify to end Joe Rogan podcast

Nearly 300 respected doctors and scientists have signed an open letter to Spotify accusing Joe Rogan of pushing ‘anti-vax misinformation’ on his podcast – with one branding him a ‘menace to public health’.

By the way, I wasn’t asked, but I would have signed it too.

During a three-hour and six-minute interview on the now-viral episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, A Dr Malone compared the US to Nazi Germany and said today’s society was suffering from a ‘mass formation psychosis’ over the use of vaccines.

He also claimed to be part of the team that invented the mRNA technology used in the Covid-19 jab and said pharmaceutical companies administering vaccines – such as Pfizer and Moderna – have ‘financial conflicts of interest’.

I seriously wish we could send these assholes back in time to Nazi Germany so they could see just how horrifyingly worse it was from today.

In an open letter, they said: ‘With an estimated 11 million listeners per episode, JRE, which is hosted exclusively on Spotify, is the world’s largest podcast and has tremendous influence.

‘Spotify has a responsibility to mitigate the spread of misinformation on its platform, though the company presently has no misinformation policy.’

The letter claims Rogan has a penchant for ‘broadcasting misinformation, particularly regarding the COVID-19 pandemic’ and that the episode with Malone promoted ‘baseless conspiracy theories’, including ‘an unfounded theory that societal leaders have ‘hypnotized the public’.’

The letter added: ‘Dr. Malone is one of two recent JRE guests who has compared pandemic policies to the Holocaust.

‘These actions are not only objectionable and offensive but also medically and culturally dangerous.’
