Popular American podcast host Joe Rogan backed up his claim that young and healthy people could give up the coronavirus vaccine.
Rogan said; ‘I’m not an antivirus person. “I think they are safe and encourage a lot of people to take them,” he says.
However, the fact that Rogan has not retracted his proposal that young people and healthy people need “need” vaccines has provoked fierce opposition from White House officials.
Experts say everyone over the age of 16 should vaccinated to stop the spread of the virus.
Joe Rogan’s experience is Spotify’s most popular podcast in 2020, although the Stream giant does not share downloads of his episodes. Logan has more than 7 million followers on Twitter and 12.5 million followers on Instagram.
When asked about Logan’s comments, Dr. Anthony Forsyth, one of the leading infectious disease specialists in the United States, echoed the expert’s guide that people without a blunt badge can still transmit Covid-19.
Rogan commented on the April 23 podcast.
Rogan tells the audience that he will not recommend the vaccine to a healthy 21-year-old. “If you’re a healthy person, you exercise the whole time, you’re young, you eat well,” he says. I do not think you’re worried about him.
Responding to criticism on Thursday’s podcast, Rogan said the idea that young people need vaccines “for others” makes sense.
But this is a different argument, he added.
Rogan stressed that it should not be a source of scientific advice. He said, “I’m not a doctor.”I’m not a respected source of information, even for me,” he says.
Risk v freedom of speech
Joe Rogan is an excellent place of attraction.
In fact, his program mentioned in Spotify’s quarterly earnings call. Joe Logan’s podcast “exceeded expectations.”
Spotify wants to take its place to go on the podcast, the atmosphere of the Logan experience is one of the highlights of this strategy. You may come to Joe Logan, but stay and listen to other podcasts. Spotify says there has been a “strong increase” in the number of people listening to pandemic podcasts.
However, there is a risk of wrapping yourself in controversial figures like Logan, and the saga carries that risk.
When Logan signed the deal with Spotify, he said, “He will have editorial control.”
However, of course Spotify has the ability to draw podcasts.
As always, big tech companies say they’re trying to balance two things: the risk of people prosecuting free speech.
Yet there is always a third factor. Money.
When his podcast shows American politicians, the White House and medical experts call him dangerous; it does not look good for the Spotify brand.
For now, Spotify seems willing to support podcasts, and Logan expects his departure to draw a line under it.
Last year both Logan and Spotify faced criticism for the appearance of conspiracy theorist Alexei Jones on their show.
So far, the streaming giant has sponsored its star host, promoting Logan’s podcast in its first-quarter earnings report this week. Spotify did not immediately respond to the BBC’s request for comment.
“We have 8 million creators and hundreds of millions of pieces of content,” Spotify CEO Daniel Eck told Bloomberg News, reiterating: “We have a content policy and we remove content that violates that policy.
U.S. and global health officials have found that the COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective in preventing infections and security checks are continuing around the world.
Experts warn that misinformation exacerbates vaccine skepticism.
In the United States, nearly 100 million people have fully vaccinated. This week, President Biden called on all Americans to accept his attack, calling it a “duty of homeland.”
