Rogan was right, Leftists are committing arson, his mistake was apologizing for the truth.
Media (Doesn't) Matters
100000000000000% guaranteed that Joe Rogan doesn't get "banned" in any capacity.
When millions upon millions upon millions of people would rather listen to Rogan than ANYONE else... you don't get banned. You get fucking paid.
Who is seriously funding Media Matters?
I think this Spotify contract was always a move to control Joe Rogan. In order for Spotify to keep their tier one tech status and keep it - they had to get someone to sacrifice.
Costs them $100m over 5 years, but they be propped up for a decade making $10bn off the back end.
They'll start with not airing some of his content, because it doesn't meet their standards...
So in order not to waste his time, Joe will stop interviewing the more "controversial" guests, because he has a Spotify exclusive deal and can't put those episodes anywhere else...
The damage Spotify will do to free speech and free ideas with this move will be irreversible...
Joe Rogan made 2 mistakes, the first is he said that the far-left was setting the wildfires, the second was his apology was not clear about what his first mistake was.
Joe makes lots of errors in his chats. He also exhibits a few knowledge gaps. Considering the incredible range of topics he entertains, and some of the people he talks with, I think that he does an admirable job of long-interviewing.
