In a recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience, the podcast’s namesake applauded independent journalists, saying that the country would be in a "really bad state" if it weren’t for these reporters.
"If it was not for independent journalism, we would be in a pickle, we would be in a really bad state because a lot of people got duped by the … pharmaceutical industry, the medical industry, the military-industrial complex," Rogan told his guest Andrew Huberman, PhD, a neuroscientist and tenured professor at Stanford University’s School of Medicine.
"They’ve been duped by so many different companies and corporations that have a vested interest in getting one narrative out," Rogan added.
Rogan said that "if you can get the narrative out through the traditional pipelines of mainstream media with no one fact checking, no one interfering, no independent journalist saying 'actually, that’s not true at all, here’s why they did that, this was the influence, here’s where the money is, we have emails, we can show you they were influenced.'"
"If it wasn’t for them, we would be f*cked and it’s one of the beautiful things about the internet today. The internet today allows people like that to thrive, because these mainstream corporations are so corrupt. They’re so obviously indebted to the companies that pay for their advertising."
A recent example of independent journalism that went viral across the country came in the form of the Twitter Files, released by journalists like Matt Taibbi and Bari Weiss, the latter of whom went on to form her own media company, the Free Press.
The Twitter Files has seen the uncovering of the inner workings of Twitter under previous leadership, including the shadowbanning of conservatives, the decision to ban former President Donald Trump following January 6, 2021, as well as government agencies’ collaboration with the social media company on topics and people to censor.
