Neil Young and Joni Mitchell Remove their music from Spotify after Giving the broadcasting platform an ultimatum. The couple urged Spotify to remove the Joe Rogan podcast Joe Rogan ExperienceProgram that spreads harmful misinformation about COVID – or loses its music for good. Spotify went with Rogan’s cash cow (and he’s said to have ended up You lose billions in the market value of its decision). However, the company also finally decided to put Content Guidance Warnings In “Any podcast episode that includes a discussion about COVID-19.” After the news arrived, Rogan made a 10-minute video commenting on the situation.

“I think there are a lot of people out there who have a distorted perception of what I’m doing, maybe based on audio footage or based on article headlines that demean me,” Rogan said in the video posted to Instagram, before also saying that the backlash comes from two specific episodes, “One with Dr. Peter McCullough and one with Dr. Robert Malone,” the podcast has been accused of spreading dangerous misinformation.

“They are both highly credible, very intelligent, very accomplished and have a different opinion of the mainstream narrative,” Rogan continued. “I wanted to hear their opinion. I turned it on and because of that, those episodes in particular — those episodes were rated dangerous, and they had serious misinformation in them.”

“The problem I have with the term disinformation, especially today, is that many things that we thought were misinformation in only a short period of time are now accepted as fact,” he added. “Like, say, eight months ago, if you said ‘If you get vaccinated, you can still catch COVID and you can still spread COVID,’ you will be removed from social media. They will ban you from some platforms. Now, that is accepted as fact. If You said ‘I don’t think cloth masks work’ you will be banned from social media. Now, this is outright and repeated on CNN. If you say ‘I think it probably came from a lab’ you will be banned from many Social media platforms. Now, that’s on the cover NEWSWEEK. ”

However, some The allegations highlighted by Rogan remain examples of coronavirus misinformation. For example, though NEWSWEEK It was reported that the World Health Organization (WHO) said a Wuhan laboratory employeewho was injured in the field [by a bat] by taking samples that fall under one of the possible hypotheses,” A closer reading found that “WHO experts were unable to find direct evidence to support the theory that the epidemic originated from Wuhan bat research.” Not completely ruling out a theory doesn’t mean there’s evidence that the origins of COVID come from the lab.

Rogan also said he was “very sorry” that Neil Young and Joni Mitchell felt the need to remove their music, as he is a fan of Young. “No hard feelings,” he told them.

In addition, the The podcast host clarified that he supports Spotify’s addition of a disclaimer at the beginning of the podcast episodes related to COVID, saying, “The only thing Spotify wants to do that I agree with, is that at the beginning of these controversial podcasts, especially those related to COVID, is to put the disclaimer.” And to say that you should talk to your doctor and that the opinions you give [these people] explicit contrary to expert consensus opinions, which I think are very important.”
