Alex Jones, alt-right conspiracy theorist who has been kick off major internet platforms, was a guest on the latest episode of Joe Rogan's popular podcast and during the rambling three-hour-plus show, Jones spouted a variety of misinformation, including claiming that masks are effective at preventing COVID infection; denying climate-change science; spreading false anti-vaccine theories; and baselessly asserting that Democrats want to hamper US economy to get President Trump boot from office. Spotify has not removed the Joe Rogan Experience episode with Jones, which also remains available on YouTube and Apple Podcasts, despite backlash on social media. On YouTube, episode has garner more than 4. 5 million views less than 24 hours after it was posted Tuesday. Joe Rogan Experience joined Spotifys lineup in September under a multiyear pact reportedly worth $100 million. The show will become available exclusively on Spotify this December. A Spotify spokesperson declined to comment, and neither YouTube nor Apple has commented on the JRE episode with Jones. Why have platforms not take down Jones ' episode of Joe Rogan Experience, especially given that Spotify, Apple and YouTube have previously banned the Infowars founder from their platforms? Sources familiar with the policy-enforcement process at Spotify and YouTube tell Variety that prohibited content applies to specific types of speech, not individuals per se and that context matters in such moderation decisions. In this case, Rogan at several points challenges Jones ' conspiracy theories and cites credible sources; As such, content isnt considered in violation of platforms misinformation policies. To that end, Spotify's chief legal officer and head of global affairs, Horacio Gutierrez, circulated a memo Wednesday to team managers defending the company's policy to not ban specific individuals from appearing in its Podcasts just because of their past commentary, BuzzFeed News report. Spotify has always been a place for creative expressions, Gutierrez wrote in an email, per BuzzFeed. It is important to have diverse voices and points of view on our platform. He also note, We are not going to ban specific individuals from being guests on other people's shows, as the episode / show complies with our content policies. Arguably, Rogan delivers exactly what Spotify want: Hes hosting guests who express controversial opinions or straight-up false information that draws a sizable audience, while at the same time, Spotify is able to defend leaving content up because Rogan provides context. Still, ongoing controversy surrounding Rogan podcast will likely continue to be a headache for Spotify. Last month, Spotify employees questioned CEO Daniel Ek in an internal town-hall meeting about why the company didnt remove a recent JRE podcast featuring Abigail Shrier, author of Irreversible Damage: Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, episode that included transphobic misinformation, according to a report by Vices Motherboard. When it added Joe Rogan Experience last month, Spotify omit several episodes with far-right guests, including two episodes featuring Jones.
