270 Medical Professionals Ask Spotify to “Implement a Misinformation Policy” on Joe Rogan

A group of 270 medical professionals sent an open letter to Spotify asking the streaming giant to implement a misinformation policy.

The group is made up of scientists, professors, doctors, and healthcare workers who want to stop the spread of misinformation online. The letter is aimed squarely at Spotify and the exclusive show, The Joe Rogan Experience podcast. Medical professionals say Joe Rogan has a penchant for “broadcasting misinformation, particularly regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The open letter calls into question a recent controversial episode of the Joe Rogan podcast that YouTube banned. Episode #1757 features Dr. Robert Malone, whose appearance spreads misinformation. Malone was suspended from Twitter for spreading misinformation about COVID-19. “Dr. Malone is one of two recent JRE guests who has compared pandemic policies to the Holocaust. These actions are not only objectionable and offensive but also medically and culturally dangerous,” the letter asserts.

Spotify has not responded to the open letter from medical professionals, and episode #1757 of the JRE remains live.

“We are calling on Spotify to take action against the mass-misinformation events which continue to occur on its platform,” the letter reads. “With an estimated 11 million listeners per episode, JRE is the world’s largest podcast and has tremendous influence. Though Spotify has a responsibility to mitigate the spread of misinformation on its platform, the company presently has no misinformation policy.”

“Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Joe Rogan has repeatedly spread misleading and false claims on his podcast, provoking distrust in science and medicine,” the letter continues.

“He has discouraged vaccination in young people and children, incorrectly claimed that mRNA vaccines are ‘gene therapy,’ promoted off-label use of ivermectin to treat COVID-19, and spread a number of unsubstantiated conspiracy theories.”

The letter cites some listener data as reasons for why Spotify should take action. According to listener data, the average age of JRE listeners is 24 years old. “According to data from Washington State, unvaccinated 12-34-year-olds are 12 times more likely to be hospitalized with COVID than those who are fully vaccinated,” the letter says.

    Appreciate all you do – and, surprised this is “reported” without the balance of the reality that 270 is a ridiculously low # – supports the truth of a “narrative” right now. As an ER doc for over 20 yrs now FT musician/mom, I too researched the available science to help myself, my family, and my community stay safe through these challenging times…and I too signed a letter – the Great Barrington Declaration – with over 900,000 other medical professionals and scientists worldwide. 270? Think about it….

      That argument is very weak. It wasn’t as if one person sent a letter. Exactly what number would be satisfactory to you? 500? 1000? 10000? How long do you think it would take to get your magic number? Do you see any problem with the huge delay in getting this letter out there while waiting to reach your magic number? Cmon, now.

      Yeah, you keep trusting an entertainer over people who studied science and medicine. You’re real smart.

      Woke. Ha ha. You used the word. Ha ha. Anyone who uses that word as an attempt to discredit others is only showing how lame they are. Woke. Ha ha. You’re a food.

        Idiot Detector bends over for Big Pharma. That’s what a good Fascist does. Just put “Ph.D or MA or grad student” and they’re “experts”.

        I don’t even trust Medical Doctors these days. They’d rather put everybody on Metformin rather than telling patients to stop eating sugar and processed carbohydrates. They’d rather put everybody on Happy Pills that don’t work. Stuff everybody full of statins that ruin your liver and make you feel like crap.

        Malone is on the PATENT of mRNA vaccines. He’s no dummy. The Vax Nazis who bend over for Big Pharma don’t want to be questioned.

        Oh hey, why are so many people dropping over of heart problems after the vax and boosters? Why are so many people going into the hospital with their organs shutting down after the vax and boosters? Why are young people getting blood clots? Why are soccer players dying? Why is everybody getting Covid even after getting vaxxed and boosted?

        The “vaccines” are a fraud, and preventative measures do work for people. Ivermectin does work for people. Screw the FDA and the CDC. Bunch of corrupt bureaucrats. QUESTION SO-CALLED AUTHORITY.

          You forgot to mention Hilary, George Soros and Bill Gates in your idiot-laced rant. Ha ha! What a moron you are.

          • Margaret T

            Ignore that guy. He posts the same stupid conspiracy theories under various names to get attention. He definitely wasn’t loved as a child.

          • Joe Rogaine

            Suddenly, Bill Gates the child maimer and killer in India and Africa is your hero. Hillary Clinton the warmonger and rapist enabler is your hero. Soros the Nazi and currency manipulator is your hero.

        Dude it’s a list of assistants go fuck yourself. You hate the word woke because you understand the garbage rot that it represents and you want to run as far away as possible from it like it was a Chernobyl that smelled like feces. Seriously you are the biggest lemming. Never reply to my shit again it’s fucking tired and you never argue with shit i say you just criticize my Pointed language that I use because I’m tired of lemming idiots like you running my society and my life and turning my city into an open air prison. Go get boosted to death so I don’t have to hear your fucking retarded shit any more ok? Booster 6 tomorrow asshole

        • Idiot Detector

          You’re a joke. More lies to justify your other lies and misinformation. It’s too obvious how stupid you really are.

          • Fuck you cocksucker


          • Doris McAllister

            His reply to you, in all caps with cursing, proves you’re right. Haha!

        • Bob Pastronovitz

          “Never reply to my shit again” – how true. What you post is shit.

    16,000 *physicians* support Dr. Malone’s right to open discourse in this modern society. The original headline mentioned “270 doctors” (on other sites, not dmn) but I’m glad it was corrected to “270 Medical Professionals” since many of the conversation suppressors are just employees at medical clinics, but not physicians.

    • MDDO

      Medical professionals?

      A lot of them were grad students or had a Ph.D in statistics. At least one had a Masters of Arts.

      Just because you have a MD or DO doesn’t mean you know everything or are an “authority” on anything.

      • Dr Idiot Detector

        Thanks for the useless, baseless comment coming from someone who has has no expertise in anything.

    • Kirk von James

      foolish opinion attempting to distract from the objective.

      Same guy, different screen name, same stupidity.

    The Plandemic was a political scam from Day #1. Nothing has changed.

    The Branch Covidiots should be forced to wear masks for the rest of their lives as a lemming identifier.

  4. Pepe

    Ends up few of these “medical professionals” were doctors. Vets, engineers, research assistants.

    Any goddam lie from liberals.
