General | Latest Info

Joe Rogans podcast has only been available on Spotify since September, and already, host is inviting controversial guests to appear. This week, he chatted with InfoWars host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones as well as comedian Tim Dillon. Episodes audio and video are available both on Spotify and YouTube, and this came after Spotify employees expressed concern over Rogans prior episodes and transphobic content. During this most recent interview, Dillon wore a shirt that said Free Ghislaine, in reference to Ghislaine Maxwell, associate of Jeffrey Epstein who was charged in July with helping Epstein recruit and groom girls to sexually abuse. Dillon claims during the three-plus-hour show that Democrats want to use COVID-19 and possible local shutdowns to prevent people from private ownership of cars and cash. Jones, who previously claimed that Sandy Hook was a hoax, also said that a lot of studies show that masks wont protect people in large groups from getting COVID. At another point, Jones exaggerates an incident in which oral vaccine caused polio in recipients. Jones said the vaccine causes 100 percent of recipients to get sick after taking it, before Rogan pulled up an AP article that details cases of two children who were paralyzed after receiving the vaccine. Dillon and Jones also claim that Democrats are intentionally trying to keep the US economy down in order to get Trump out of office. Although Rogan attempts to fact-check Jones ' live by asking for his sources and then attempting to search and pull up links during recording, it doesnt take away from the fact that he is giving Jones a place to share his views. InfoWars has been banned from most major tech platforms, including YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. Spotify itself also remove Jones ' own podcast from its platform in 2018. Spotify signed an exclusive deal with Rogan earlier this year that bring Show to its platform. It had never been available up until that point. The show arrives on Spotify on September 1 and is planned to become exclusive at some point soon. The company hasnt provided an exact date. In return for the deal, Spotify stressed that Rogan retain creative control over his show. Still, prior Rogan episodes that feature Jones are available on Spotify currently, and the company hasnt commented on why that is. Spotify declined to comment for this story, but an internal email obtained by BuzzFeed News details the strategy Spotify team managers have been directed to take when considering response to the Rogans Show. Spotify has always been a place for creative expressions, email say. Its important to have diverse voices and points of view on our platform. The email also says Spotify wo ban specific individuals from being guests on other people's shows, as the episode / show complies with our content policies. Update 10 / 28 1: 17PM ET: update to include BuzzFeed News reporting about leaked email memo about Spotifys Joe Rogan talking points.

'Clear guidelines'

Apple has completely removed five of six Podcasts run by Alex Jones and InfoWars from iTunes and Podcast App, including Alex Jones Show and War Room. The only remaining Podcast from the Jones network is RealNews with David Knight. Jones has come under fire recently for his long-standing propensity to promote conspiracy theories. Famously, he claimed the Sandy Hook School shooting was fake and accused Stoneman Douglass High School students of being pay crisis actors. He has often promoted even crazier stuff like promoting Pizzagate, chemtrails, and the host of 9 / 11 and New World Order conspiracy theories. That is not what got Jones into trouble with Apple, though. Apples actions are center not around the veracity of InfoWars content, but around his propensity to employ hate speech and incite violence. In a statement to BuzzFeed News, Apple say: action by Apple is more serious than the relative slap-on-wrist given earlier by YouTube and Facebook, each of which only remove few episodes and issue limited suspension. Since Apples moved on Sunday, however, Facebook, YouTube, and Spotify have moved to kick Jones off their platforms entirely, removing nearly all of his videos, pages, and podcasts. Apple's action is unusual. The Companies do not host Podcasts you find on iTunes or its Podcasts App. Rather, podcast hosts include specific metadata in their feed, then sign up to have it listed by Apple. If it meets a few basic technical requirements, it is typically list, and then Apple maintains a mostly hand-off approach. There are terms of use in place, and it is curated, but Apples approach to podcasts is far more lax than, say, apps on the App Store. Apple certainly has removed Podcasts in the past for violating its terms of use, but never with such a prominent and prolific podcast producer.

Apple causing a domino reaction

Infowars Official App was hosting a post on Monday that incorrectly suggested that Apple ban Infowars. It removed some Infowars Podcasts from its directory. Screenshot / Infowars Apple decided to remove Infowars Podcasts after a period of increased scrutiny of Jones and the Infowars network, which led to activist pressure on tech companies to pull his content from their distribution platforms. Jones has pushed the theory, without evidence, that Democrats were planning to start a civil war in the United States on July 4. He has ALSO claimed that the mass shooting in Sandy Hook never happen, which has led to harassment of survivors and their families. Facebook, Spotify, and YouTube all announced on Monday that they had taken Infowars content off its platforms after Apple's announcement. Podcasts distributed through Apple's podcast App aren't hosted by Apple, it's merely a directory for finding and organizing shows. Dedicate listeners can still add Alex Jones Show to their podcast App by pasting URL. It certainly makes it harder to find and peruse Infowars content, but it's not actively blocking users from accessing it. Apple's App Store is different. It actually hosts apps and users download them from Apple's content distribution network. Apple has highlighted its App Store as one of its biggest growing products, because it takes between 15 % and 30 % of purchases made through it. The App Store has exceeded our wildest expectations, igniting cultural and economic phenomenon that has changed how people work, learn and play, CEO Tim Cook said last week during a conference call. Last month, both Apple and Google removed Apps focusing on far right conspiracy theory called qanon involving Hillary Clinton and alleged child sex ring. App, QDrops, was removed from Apple's App Store after an NBC News story that said that Apple make money from Apps through its cut of 0. 99 purchase price. We have published clear guidelines that developers must follow in order for their apps to be distributed by the App Store, designed to foster innovation and provide a safe environment for all of our users. We will take swift action to remove any apps that violate our guidelines or law. We take this responsibility very seriously, Apple told NBC News. The bigger issue is that some of these tools are used to divide people, to manipulate people, to get fake news to people in broad numbers, and so to influence their thinking, Cook, Apple's CEO, said last year. This, to me, is number one-through-ten issue. Meanwhile, Jones took to Periscope live video broadcasting service operated by Twitter to rail against tech companies, including Apple, for their actions, and urge his followers to download the Infowars App.
