Spotify Censors Episodes of Joe Rogan’s Podcast – Again

Spotify has mass-deleted at least 70 episodes of the Joe Rogan Experience as the platform faces further calls to remove Rogan’s show from its platform.

This is not the first time that Spotify has censored episodes of the show since signing a megadeal with the comedian.

Nolte: Cancel Culture Doesn’t Violate First Amendment, but Neither Did McCarthyism

How do the champions of today’s “cancel culture” defend their witch hunts to censor ideas, people, and speech through boycotts and de-platforming? Well, over the past few years, we’ve heard the same excuse a million times: Over and over, they tell us that corporations have every right to choose who they want to do business with and that only the government can violate the First Amendment.
