Does Joe Rogan Own the News Cycle Now?

2022 January 29
by drdog09

His 3 hr discussion with Dr. Malone topped the podcast charts. This will probably do the same.

News media is taking pot shots. A has been singer lost and has been kicked off Spotify at his own insistence. Even some politicians are following his lede.

“If you are catching flack, you are over the target.”

    Neil Young threw a fit, invoked his Baby Boomer Privilege Card, and demanded that Spotify cancel Joe Rogan, but instead Spotify borrowed from Lynyrd Skynyrd and said “we don’t need him around anyhow,” and promptly dropped Young.

    So what is Rogan’s secret? My guess is authentic with an everyman vibe. I have watched maybe 100 podcasts of his over the years. Of all of them I have never seen him push a preconception on the guest. He has challenged them at times (“Hey look that up.”) and pop the answer up on the screen. He has reeled a guest or two back in from going too far afield. But generally just lets them run which either is to the guests favor or disfavor.

    As to this particular episode, it is catching alot of flack. Petersen is not everyone’s cup of tea and he certainly is a pariah on the Left. Then there is the central point of The Bible being a keystone document of Western canon. Any adherent of the Frankfurt school of Leftist dogma, a discussion of the biblical texts is like wolfsbane to a werewolf. Finally there is the question posed by the post, does Rogan control the news cycle. The answer in my mind is mixed. Is he setting the trend of what is happening? No. Is he sorting through the chaff and highlighting what is important? Emphatically yes.

    Essentially if you want to see the comedy and tragedy of human existence turn on cable news. If you want to plumb a deeper meaning of what is happening in depth turn on Joe Rogan.

    I believe the following is relevant to a discussion about Joe Rogan and why he must be canceled. This directly relates to how destructive ideas such as CRT are being pushed by powerful groups in our society.

    If you examine the ADL website in 2017, the following is used to describe what racism is:


    Racism is the belief that a particular race is superior or inferior to another, that a person’s social and moral traits are predetermined by his or her inborn biological characteristics. Racial separatism is the belief, most of the time based on racism, that different races should remain segregated and apart from one another.

    Now, fast forward to the same web page in 2022:


    Racism: The marginalization and/or oppression of people of color based on a socially constructed racial hierarchy that privileges white people.

    Notice a not-so-subtle difference?

    Now, combine what is described above with the following which demonstrates how influential the ADL is through Big Tech with regards to who gets canceled.

    Twitter, and ADL Announce Lab to Engineer New Solutions to Stop Cyberhate

    New York, NY, October 10, 2017 … Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Twitter and other leading technology companies are joining with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), the world’s leading organization combating anti-Semitism and hate of all kinds, to establish a Cyberhate Problem-Solving Lab to counter the growing amount of hate speech online.

    Is it any wonder that a sane voice in new media such as Joe Rogan must be canceled by any means necessary?

    Joni Mitchell has joined Neil Young in removing her music from Spotify in protest against their promotion of Joe Rogan’s vaccine-sceptic views.

    The singer, 78, said she was standing ‘in solidarity’ with Young who this week demanded Spotify take down his songs unless the platform agrees to stop carrying The Joe Rogan Experience podcast.

    Joni Mitchell? Sheesh, this is starting to get serious. LOL.

    Barry Manilow issued a statement that the rumors he demanded to have his music taken off Spotify are false.

    Unlike CNN and thew NY Times, I issue a retraction when I issue false news.

    I reiterate, unless you are a Boomer the proper answer is — “Joni who?” Rinse and repeat as appropriate.

    I say let them, for all they are doing is self-canceling.

    That is a great find on the ADL. You could say the same about ACLU. They once defended Nazis. Now they for most purposes ARE one.

    I’m late to the party on Joe Rogan but sometime last year I listened to a few shows. At first, I was all: “2 hour interview??? You must be kidding!!”
    But the ones I listened to were full of content. The time went fast and felt well-spent. The 3 talks with Covid dissidents are outstanding. Well worth the time.

    So I’ll be in Joe’s corner … I may feel some pangs if Gordon Lightfoot boycotts. Wait … isn’t old Gordie deceased?

    Good video, but there is something suspicious about it. I don’t see that guy being a staunch Democrat and Biden supporter 12 months ago going to where he is now. Everything he complains about Biden and Harris was out there before then for anyone who cared to look. Perhaps he lost his job, business or something else that made the switch go on, but doesn’t mention it for some reason.

    So what is Rogan’s secret?
    Things already mentioned and DEPTH/long form…. doesn’t have to fit an interview into a 5 or 8min segment, can take the time necessary to discuss a topic or explore things with a guest in depth. The host is also very often prepared for the interview (read the persons book(s), is usually up to speed on topics discussed). It’s the opposite of most content these days that is chopped into 5min or less bites. Probably why Tuckers longer form interviews online are also popular as well.

    15 – They tried some years back to shutdown Adam over similarly stupid shit, but he basically told people to fuck off, and their attempts only increased his subscriptions so they backed off after a couple weeks.

  26. 2022 January 29 6:33 pm

    22 – Agree, seems like BS to anyone remotely paying attention in 2020, which you would think applies to someone who worked the Biden campaign in 2020 like he said. Nothing that is happening should surprise a Biden voter, it was all known before, there’s no surprise here.

    I call bullshit, they said the same in fall of 2016 about Ryan as speaker, then everyone (to the extent they existed) folded after the election, including Trump, leading to countless issues in the two years to follow.

    30 – My town experimented with traffic light cameras about 5 years ago on a major intersection that is fed directly from an offramp on the local interstate. The camera was underperforming from a $$$ perspective so the yellow light period was shortened by a few seconds to capture more people as the traffic light turned red. However, this change did not go unnoticed by people used to the old timing and now getting tickets from the camera. It caused a minor local scandal that long-established traffic lights had been manipulated simply to generate more $$$. The camera was quickly and quietly removed and the whole fiasco was forgotten.

    I imagine there are a lot of cameras where such manipulation is unnoticed and/or the city council simply doesn’t care.

    36 – The problem those two nurses raking in $1.5 million had was they mistakenly thought they were like congress-critters, senators, FDA, CDC, or NIH officials. Or, big pharma for that matter. The system will NOT tolerate plebians making money off the vaccination scam. Making a profit from the scaremongering is something only reserved for the elites who are allowed to release misinformation or falsify records to justify whatever they want to push on us little people.

    President Trump promises to PARDON Jan. 6 prisoners if he runs and wins in 2024

    This kinda pisses me off. Trump lets these people slowly twist in the wind for the last year and now promises to maybe do something for them 3 years from now. Seems to be too little, too late. Perhaps Trump has been helping these people behind the scenes for the last year (with legal and other financial help), but I haven’t heard about it. Has anyone else?

    I think a much better play would be for Trump to say he will not help whatever GOP candidate is selected in 2024 unless that candidate pledges to pardon the Jan. 6 prisoners. Use his influence to force the GOP towards an immediate course of action to help people who are being politically prosecuted by the media and Democrats.

    Consider if you will, he stated he was a Kamala supporter before becoming a Biden supporter. That is the mark of an uninformed voter if you consider Harris polled and received the lowest vote totals during the campaign/convention. Then he gets whacked side of the head by a 2×4 of reality. We folks on this blog are about as plugged into the political scene short of actually living in DC. Most of the public spend X hours making their choice, walk into the booth and then call it a day.


    Good ole Texas outlawed speed cameras for the reason stated. And yes there were cities making big bank with them and did not want to give them up. F’em.


    Nice to know classics like that being kept up. I owned a GTO of the period, was part of a bunch gear heads at school. For all the power we shoved under the hood they were all dogs. Handling sucked due to the massive understeer, the positrac rear on a GTO absolutely sucked and compared to fuel injection, carbs were ancient. Drove a friends Mustang w/427, unwound the damn thing to 150, got so scared I never drove in it again. To this day it reminds me of this ole ditty —


    I am further mystified by Neil Young and Neil Diamond being a musical genre match.

    I agree it was/is bad optics. But unroll the timeline, Trump technically was out of office. The witch hunt started after the inauguration. But I like the idea of forcing Congress to take up the issue as the first order of business.

    Seems the Canadian truckers are getting on people’s nerves with complaints that the constant honking noise is a kind of violence and the police really need to step in.

    So here is what we learned over the last two years:

    Silence is violence.
    Honking is violence.
    Burning down businesses is mostly peaceful.
