Members of the medical and scientific community come after podcaster Joe Rogan.

Two hundred and seventy “scientists, medical professionals, professors and science communicators” are calling on Spotify to add a misinformation policy to “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast.

The ‘Open Letter to Spotify’ comes from Rogan’s interview with Dr Robert Malone, as they called out the podcaster for asking someone to compare pandemic policies to those of the Holocaust.

“By allowing the spread of false and socially harmful claims, Spotify is enabling its hosted media to undermine public trust in scientific research and cast doubt on the credibility of data-based advice offered by professionals. of health,” the letter reads.

“Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Joe Rogan has repeatedly aired misleading and false claims on his podcast, causing mistrust in science and medicine. He discouraged vaccination of young people and children, falsely asserted that mRNA vaccines are “gene therapy”, promoted the off-label use of ivermectin to treat COVID-19 (contrary to FDA warnings) and spread a number of unsubstantiated conspiracy theories.

YouTube deleted Rogan’s interview with Malone and Twitter suspended Malone’s account earlier this month for violating the social media’s policy on posting false information about Covid-19.
