    Default Joe Rogan 'striking back against Youtube censorship'

    https://www.zerohedge.com/technology...e-and-big-tech

    "Alex Jones exclusively revealed Thursday that Joe Rogan signed an exclusivity contract for his podcast with Spotify as a way of striking back against YouTube censorship. Jones, who has been friends with Rogan for 22 years, spoke at length with the podcast king, with Rogan telling him that he should announce to the world that the move is a direct strike against Google, that the “gloves are off” and he is “going to war” against big tech tyranny.

    Jones told his audience that Rogan had encouraged him to go on air and “put it all out there".

    The deal, suggested to be worth $100 million, was announced earlier this week. Analysts are saying that it will change the face of media forever.

    Jones, who has appeared on The Joe Rogan Experience numerous times, also announced that Rogan had specifically requested in his contract with Spotify that the Infowars host will be allowed to appear uncensored on the podcast on Spotify.

    Jones said Rogan wants him as the first guest on the show when it arrives on Spotify on the 1st of September, followed by Elon Musk, who is also currently speaking out against big tech censorship and cancel culture.

    The last time Jones appeared on the podcast, it was the most listened to podcast of 2019 with over 17 million views on YouTube..

    Google was subsequently caught shadow banning the episode in an attempt to stop its popularity.

    Jones said Rogan told him he is sick of being treated poorly by Google, and the straw that broke the camel’s back was that Rogan wanted to interview doctors and experts who have differing opinions on the coronavirus to the officially sanctioned narrative, and was told by YouTube that they would not allow such content on their platform.

    Rogan also told Jones that the lockdown has provided him more clarity on the situation.

    Rogan has noted on his podcast that YouTube is consistently demonetising his content and removing videos. He told Jones that he sees it not only as ‘un-American’, but also ‘anti-human’.

    An excited Jones descried the move by Rogan as “peak internet”.

    Rogan’s podcast was downloaded 190 million times per month last year. His YouTube channel has 8.42 million subscribers, and the move away is sure to be a huge strike against big tech thought control.”




    And on instagram, his announcement:

    joerogan:
    Announcement: the podcast is moving to @spotify!
    Starting on September 1 the podcast will be available on Spotify as well as all platforms, and then at the end of the year it will move exclusively to Spotify, including the video version.
    It will remain FREE, and it will be the exact same show.

    I see a mass exodus on spotify of users who listen to podcasts more than music if they choose to go leftist on him. This is another multi-million views guy who had Judy Mikovitz on, but her interview with him got taken down by youtube.



    Apparently MIT went after him... shocking. The rocks are crashing down on Billy the Goates and his minion Fauxci once more... we pray and we await true justice.

    I wish that Joe Rogan would bring Judy onto both Spotify and Youtube and see how this flies in the face of the censorship devils.

    The non-normies are desperate for good news and someone respectable to rise and take a stand. I too have learned to catch myself before getting too enthused about any character seemingly filling that slot.

    Considering who the hidden owners of EVERY mass media outlet of every kind are - there's NO CHANCE Spotify is not also a boardfull of corrupt, greedy satanist enemies of rights and freedom playing their part - so I'm very leery of any other figure being allowed a spotlight - like Trump was - seemingly telling people what they want to hear for the moment, only to turn out to be purely a Judas betrayer all along like Trump.

    The timing of Rogan starting in September to give him 2 full months of an intense spotlight right before elections just when Trump can't hold 100k people rallies anymore is also very suspect.

    I've never wanted to be more wrong but I'm not giving any trust anymore before it's earned. If Rogan doesn't really 'take the gloves off' like Alex Jones says he realizes he must, and continues to avoid 9-11 and the Jewish worldwide stranglehold on money, media, pharma and high tech industries, we'll know who he's really working for.

    According to David Icke it is the Zionists who are supposedly anti-jewish
    who are the big money manipulators and operate under the guise of
    being Jewish when they hate Jews.

    I believe David knows what he is talking about.

    I would change that to "... almost universally ..."

    re: Rogan.

    You guys know I hold no punches here.
    I have seen a very limited amount of Rogan, because he rubs me the wrong way.
    Very uncultured, unpolished, not the sharpest knife in the drawer etc. etc.

    When I saw his, ahem... total "ignorance" about 9/11 that was more than enough for me.

    $100 million deal with Spotify? Are you serious?
    Fahget about Rogan.
    If he had any degree of independence, it's all gone now.
    Yes indeed, money corrupts. It goes hand in hand with allegiance and you never bite the hand that feeds you!

    In my books Rogan's a lost cause.

    This 'striking back' business is much ado about nothing.

    What he may be doing, in a crafty way not entirely of his own conjuring, is setting himself up as a kinda lefty gatekeeper for the voices from the anti left, in the run up to the election. Youtube Facebook and Twitter will keep on playing the same moves while he becomes the big alt focal point interviewing all the voices that have nowhere else to go.

    Snag is, it'll all be kind of filtered or shaped or coloured by his habitual sloppy liberal aimlessness. I can't yet imagine how that will go. It could be disastrous for the voices that have no choice but Rogan, or it could work out quite well. If I think of it as speaking the same language as the floating liberal voters, who knows. We'll soon find out.

    Whatever you think of Joe Rogan personally, he has given a larger voice and wider exposure to many interesting thinkers, scientists, writers and pundits, who were long ignored by mainstream media. I would have never read Graham Hancock, listened to Hotep Jesus, or been introduced to the amazing work of Melissa Chin without the Rogan podcast.

    Also, a reminder that Spotify is a Swedish company. Sweden refused to lockdown and is apparently on their way to herd immunity.

    A response that takes a look at the potential implications in the market and what it might mean for content creators and for youtube.


    Is all this likely to be a game changer?
