MauiHawaiiTheWorld: In their continuing campaign to attack anyone questioning official narratives around Covid and vaccines, Rolling Stone published a denouncement of broadcaster Joe Rogan’s recent podcast with Dr. Robert Malone with the headline – “A Menace to Public Health’: Doctors Demand Spotify Puts an End to Covid Lies on ‘Joe Rogan Experience.” The subhead (incorrectly) suggested the Spotify open letter was signed by 270 physicians and scientists.
Basically it accused Rogan and Malone of spreading misinformation about vaccine safety, ivermectin, and the theory “that “mass formation psychosis” is responsible for people believing in the efficacy of vaccines.”
Reacting to the hit piece former R.S. political commentator Matt Taibbi tweeted – “My former employers, a rock magazine once, shifting to a Tipper Gore role.” Taibbi was alluding to Al Gore’s wife attempt to censor music lyrics.
And acclaimed journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted – “They can’t stand that anyone airs any dissent from the views they demand be treated as orthodoxy. And they become particularly enraged when the people they think are inferior and stupid have large audiences, while nobody listens to them. That’s what drives the desperation.”
The Rolling Stone article by EJ Dickson (who normally covers pop stars), featured an interview withJessica Malaty Rivera, who calls herself a“science communicator.” It reported, “Rivera was even more horrified to discover that people in her life, whom she considered to be “quite wise and discerning,” were hoodwinked by Malone’s patina of academic credibility, considering his views on the vaccine legitimate.” more here
