The White House urges Spotify to censor more after ‘COVID-19 Misinformation’ concerns and Joe Rogan comments on covid.
The White House is joining the debate about coronavirus “misinformation” on streaming platform Spotify, insisting that more needs to be done to ensure Americans get accurate information about the pandemic.
“Our hope is that all major tech platforms and all major news sources, for that matter, be responsible and be vigilant to ensure the American people have access to accurate information on something as significant as covid-19,” Psaki said Tuesday. “That certainly includes Spotify.”
Press secretary Jen Psaki called it a “positive step” that Spotify had decided to add disclaimers about covid misinformation in response to criticism from medical professionals and musicians that some content, in particular from provocative podcaster Joe Rogan, spreads false information about the coronavirus and vaccines.
The biden clown administration believes that Spotify’s move to add advisory warnings to podcasts discussing Covid-19 is a “positive step”, according to press secretary Jen Psaki.
The move comes after several musicians asked to have their music pulled from the streaming service amid growing controversy over Joe Rogan’s show.
Ms Psaki said the White House hoped other platforms would follow suit.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has called on Spotify this week to take more action in censoring Joe Rogan’s popular podcast after the streaming giant introduced content advisory warnings on episodes that include the covid hoax virus.
Psaki made the remarks during Tuesday’s White House press briefing while responding to a question by a reporter on Spotify’s decision to add disclaimers. She said the company taking action is “a positive step,” but the Biden administration wants “every platform to continue doing more” in calling out “COVID-19 misinformation.”
“Our hope is that all major tech platforms, and all major news sources for that matter, be responsible and be vigilant to ensure the American people have access to accurate information on something as significant as COVID-19. That certainly includes Spotify,” Psaki said.

Joe Rogan On Spotify
Joe Rogan recently faced criticism from several people who went as far as demanding Spotify to remove episodes of “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast from the platform after claiming the 54-year-old host promoted “misinformation” about the CCP virus and vaccines.
On Monday, Joe Rogan said in a nearly ten-minute video on his personal Instagram account that he wasn’t trying to “promote misinformation” or “be controversial”—noting that he was simply seeking to have conversations on his podcast with people who have “differing opinions.”
“I’ve never tried to do anything with this podcast other than to just talk to people and have interesting conversations,” Rogan said.
Psaki’s comment has also drawn the attention of cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough, who appeared in a popular episode of the show in recent weeks.
“Instead of going after Rogan who is not a doctor—why not POTUS, Psaki, and Spotify invite me for a review of the data so they can fully see and understand all the peer-reviewed ad preprint data they are trying to censor? How can they know what to censor if they don’t review it?” McCullough said on Twitter.
He also disputed claims that he promoted “misinformation” about COVID-19 and vaccines during the show after Spotify chief executive Daniel Ek announced the tech giant will lay out more transparent platform rules such as content advisory warnings.
McCullough has an impressive list of credentials—he’s an internist, cardiologist, epidemiologist, and a full professor of medicine at Texas A&M College of Medicine in Dallas and is the editor of two medical journals and published hundreds of studies in the literature. He’s also among those persons speaking out about the potential harm COVID-19 jabs can cause, even putting his medical license and future livelihood at risk by so doing.
U.S. virologist and immunologist Dr. Robert Malone, who is a key mRNA vaccine technology contributor also recently appeared on the show. Both medical professionals have been critical of the way in which the pandemic has been handled in the United States.
