Spotify Wimps Out, Pressures Joe Rogan To Embrace Mainstream Narrative

“NEW YORK (AP) — Following protests of Spotify kicked off by Neil Young over the spread of COVID-19 vaccine misinformation, the music streaming service said that it will add content advisories before podcasts discussing the virus.”

“In a post Sunday, Spotify chief executive Daniel Ek laid out more transparent platform rules given the backlash stirred by Young, who on Wednesday had his music removed from Spotifyafter the tech giant declined to get rid of episodes of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” which has been criticized for spreading virus misinformation.”

Rogan presented an alternative to the Mainstream Narrative. By putting “content advisories” on his podcasts, Spotify is just doing what other big tech companies have done. At least they haven’t started deleting content – yet. Free speech is in danger.

And what would the Sixties versions of Neil Young and Joni Mitchell have thought of their present versions?
