(AP Photo/Richard Drew) The outrage and opposition to Joe Rogan is all smoke, barely hiding the press’ smoldering jealousy.
In a recent edition of the “Reliable Sources” newsletter, CNN’s entertainment writer, Brian Lowry weighed in with his opinion on the ever-developing controversy over Spotify and Joe Rogan’s podcast. While stopping just shy of announcing Rogan needs to be removed, Lowry still delivered the justification for such action.
In his summation of the issue, he states that because of Rogan’s level of success, he is now duty-bound to alter his format and take on a more responsible approach – one that comports to the approved narrative, from media outlets like CNN. This is hilariously oblivious because what is essentially being said here is that Joe Rogan has to deliver only approved talking points, all while moving away from the very elements that have made him so wildly successful. Call me hesitant to follow @blowryontv on the advice that the best thing that @JoeRogan can do is to stop doing all those methods that brought him unforeseen success. pic.twitter.com/F5rWVjqFyb — Brad Slager – Aluminum Medalist 12oz Curling Team (@MartiniShark) February 2, 2022 In an easily dismissed episode this week, we were granted an amusingly inept dose of contradiction. That it was seen on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” is all the reason to explain why it was lightly regarded – or more accurately, barely watched. On the episode, hostess Mika Brzezinski was dismayed at the punishment ABC delivered to Whoopi Goldberg over her controversial remarks on the air about “Jewish” not being a race. Mika was perturbed about the effort to silence anyone. MSNBC’s @morningmika Brzezinksi: “Everyone knows Whoopi Goldberg. She’s been on TV for decades … If you don’t know her heart, then you haven’t been watching … This cancel culture is getting […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
