Joe Rogan explains his problem with the term “disinformation”
In the video, a kind of frank confessional apparently shot by Rogan himself using his own phone, Rogan apologized to those he had unwittingly offended, before launching into a poignant, carefully crafted explanation that gently nudged and reminded objectors about why Rogan’s show is a must-listen, and a leader in the modern-day podcast gold rush.
But first, Rogan asked listeners to ignore certain “disparaging” headlines that he said misrepresent what he’s doing.
“I wanted to make this video first of all because I think there are a lot of people who have a distorted misconception about what I do maybe based on soundbites or headlines of articles that are disparaging. The podcast has been accused of spreading ‘dangerous misinformation’…specifically about two episodes, one with Dr. Peter McCollough and one with Dr. Robert Malone.”
Both doctors are highly credentialed, while also harboring views on SARS-CoV-2 and how to combat it that are “different” from the mainstream narrative.
“Both of these people are very highly credentialed very intelligent highly accomplished people and they have an opinion that’s different from the mainstream narrative. I wanted to hear what their opinion is.”
Unfortunately, there are others who are fearful of what these two doctors have to say, and believe that they are somehow personally responsible for the ongoing COVID pandemic (despite the fact that “the science” shows it’s quite obvious that there’s nothing humans can do to stop the pandemic, although they can take steps to limit fatalities).*
*The science shows that for now. And by science I mean statements made by scientists, which they pass off as science, when it’s merely their opinion. That’s why just like with everything else said about stopping, curing or reducing the spread, that bit of alleged science, will be contradicted by the numbers.
