Watch as 'CBS Mornings' suggest Joe Rogan is killing people via his podcast when talking about Covid, implying he's responsible for their deaths.
They add they SUPPORT free speech & the First Amendment — just not for Rogan to have *A* platform, calling his show "dangerous." pic.twitter.com/dzONwcPhVh

Spotify could remove Joe Rogan tomorrow "and it wouldn't make a dent. It wouldn't make a dent in his audience," @katrosenfield says. "People would still listen to him and, crucially, they still wouldn't trust more mainstream media sources." pic.twitter.com/tpi4L47nh0

The media peaked just right after 9/11.
There were countless local stations that were all affiliates of three corporations and half a dozen national cable channels.
People turned to the media for information in the early days of the Global War on Terror.
A handful of news networks and agencies had a monopoly on information.
Then technology happened.
Smart phones, social media, podcasts, information distribution was democratized.
The major networks we’ve proven to be serial liars, from WMDs to the Trump/Russia collusion and pee-pee tapes to Hunter Biden’s laptop as Russian disinformation and Nick Sandmann’s libel settlement.
All of this hoopla against Joe Rogan is the old media monopoly tantruming as control of information is wrenched from their grasp by amateurs.
