    To that, Rogan responded, “Oh, so [Trump] fucked up.” Nickal commented, “That’s the thing about media these days. You gotta look into it.”

      The ol’ Fox news switcheroo.

      They brag about being the most watched news on television and also tell their viewers to not trust mainstream media.

        Yeah, and it works wonderfully. Why wouldn’t they roll with it?

        We libs think we score some kinda “gotcha!” by pointing to the hypocrisy. It’s not working for us.

        They got a formula that works. We do not. Isn’t it about time to abandon the high road and engage in lying, cheating and stealing? Hell, they already think we’re doing it.

      Not only that, with being one of the most popular podcasts ever you could even call it mainstream.

              True. A few years ago I started watching old JRE videos and enjoyed them, but when I started watching the videos as they came out, I found the show sucked because Rogan wasn’t just platforming people anymore, he was actively pushing his own beliefs because he’d become convinced he was an expert on everything.

        Not directly related beyond steaming and podcasting apparently rotting people’s brains, but I just watched a stream where a guy tried to cough up a lung and then said “it’s not allergies, chat, it’s just hay fever”

          In case I’m not the only one who didn’t know what hay fever is:

          Hay fever is the common name for allergic rhinitis.

          Hay fever is caused by the nose and/or eyes coming into contact with environmental allergens, such as pollens (grasses, weeds or trees), dust mite, moulds and animal dander.

        He did not acknowledge the logical conclusion that everything he said about Biden being unfit should then in theory be applied to Trump. No, Trump just “fucked up”.

        If read the article critically, you would not accept such a lazy correction.

          I actually watched the podcast for the context of this article. You’re right, he doesn’t apply the same scrutiny towards Trump. Yet, he does acknowledge it and they showed the clip of Trump’s idiotic speech. They also laugh at him, but then move on. Anyone that actually watches the podcast, the ones you’re afraid will be manipulated into fascism or whatever, would have seen that recanted. The only side that has a real opinion swaying agenda is the media side. A lot of people just read headlines and move on. Those people would never even be aware of the correction.

          Also, I don’t care. I know Joe Rogan has different political views than I do and that doesn’t stop me from seeing him as a person that is entitled to his own views. I can still respect him for his work in comedy, mma and for his podcast. I haven’t watched a full one in a while, but he has some good ones with interesting people. He also has a way of interviewing people that seems mich more real than most other formats. He just shoots the shit with people and it doesn’t feel like some scripted intentional message they’re trying to put out.

            the ones you’re afraid will be manipulated into fascism or whatever, would have seen that recanted.

            They would have seen a recantion, yes, but nothing about either saying why he just ranted about Biden’s mental fitness with appropriate evidence OR spend some significant time retracting each adjective that he applied to Biden on false information.

            He is fucking broadcasting. Stop treating him like a buddy sitting on your couch. He either knows what he is doing, or he has no respect for the power of having a large audience that can internalize messages on his word.

            I believe your comment shows a lack of awareness of how people get piped to fascist viewpoints. To be clear, I do not think Rogen is intentionally leading people there, but being an idiot is not a great shield.

            How could he not acknowledge it? They played the clip… He was proven incorrect on the air. The issue is that he was using the statement as a reason Biden should be removed, but for Trump it was just a mistake.

                That’s also why Joe Rogans stupid conspiracy theories and political bias can be dangerous, sometimes. Stupid people will believe every word like he knows what he’s talking about.

                I don’t hate him or think he’s evil, either, fwiw. He’s just a dumb out of touch rich guy with too many gullible fans.

              I don’t know about evil, but he has a platform with a huge amount of influence which he uses to push a conservative viewpoint. That, at the very least, makes him immoral.

        You are mistaken in thinking that changes anything.

        Fascists only need to blast their message. Any incorrectness or recanting is 100% irrelevant and inconsequential.

        When the nazis roll over the government and burn it all down, I swear, there’ll be this 10% subset of people befuddled that this could be happening after all of the recanting. It doesn’t matter. Don’t let them convince you it matters.

          Like blasting headlines about how shitty Joe Rogan is? I’ve seen a ton of them and pretty much all of them are overblown, taken out of context or misleading. Media knows you guys love to hate him, that’s why they put out these pieces in the first place.

          Also, I fail to see how someone wanting to put down Biden is bad. People are entitled to their opinions and views, even if they aren’t what you agree with. I seriously doubt Joe Rogan is plotting to make America fascist. Biden is not without his faults as well. His main selling point is that he isn’t Trump.

    I seen a bit of this interview yesterday. The article doesn’t cover it all. As soon as these 2 knuckleheads started spewing airports and it was Biden that said this I was confused as this was something Trump said a few years back. Didn’t they know? They ride the media for skewing things and they weren’t even aware of how Trump was called out in the same media for this some time back.

    Below this fellow breaks down the double standard in more detail than the article does. It covers how Rogan and his Guest said no one should listen to Biden and how he is unfit for office due to this airport thing. Then when the producer points out to Rogan that Biden is referring to what Trump previously said, it wasn’t a big deal all of a sudden to Rogan and the guest.

    Trump gets a “whoopsie doodle” pass and Trump is still the better choice in his mind I’m sure. Not saying Biden is a gem of a rose but with how hard the right are trying to pin anything on Biden and failing, Trump is still a rotten to the core choice for endless reasons.

          At least a few months back Alex Jones was bragging about finally converting Rogan to his side. He’d been telling his audience for years he’s been working on getting Rogan to take his stance.

      Its always unfalsifiable. They’re right no matter their position, $100 million > objective reality any day /s

      Thats why estoppel in the legal system and the legal system in general are Trump’s kryptonite, even if it looks like hes constantly usurping it. Make him pin down himself and he just can’t do it so he loses cuz he can’t stop himself from hedging or being sure what he says is going to be universally adored by those he “represents”

      Also, like those Targets that let you steal until its a felony and both of you hit the big time 🎬
