Most of The 270 Signatories on Letter Calling for Censorship of Joe Rogan Are Not Medical Doctors

An open letter was sent to Spotify last week, asking them to take action against Joe Rogan for misinformation regarding COVID


Two hundred seventy self-proclaimed “doctors” co-signed an open letter to Spotify urging the company to take action against podcast host Joe Rogan for promoting so-called COVID-related “misinformation.”

Mainstream media rushed to circulate the letter, and many prominent outlets actively ran headlines calling Rogan a “menace to public health.”

However, a closer look found that most of the signatories are either not direct medical providers or are not legally permitted to practice medicine on their own. 

Almost one hundred signatories claim to have Ph.D. degrees but do not regularly practice. 

The criticism-laden letter was sent in response to a recent episode of Rogan’s “The Joe Rogan Experience” that featured virologist and immunologist Dr. Robert Malone.

Malone criticized the vaccine during the viral episode and voiced concerns over “mass formation psychosis.”

Media outlets including The Guardian, Forbes, Rolling Stone, Washington Post, and others published content highlighting the letter to Spotify. The articles describe an influential coalition of doctors who requested that Spotify “implement a misinformation policy.”

Upon review, only 87 of the signatories are actual medical doctors. It was the news site The Blaze that first reported this detail. 

The remaining 183 signatories include nurse practitioners, veterinarians, a dentist, and about 100 Ph.D.’s and Ph.D. candidates. Psychologists, physicians’ assistants, medical students, engineers, and podcast hosts were also part of the list.

The group’s letter urged Spotify to “take action against mass-misinformation events” on its platform. The group criticized Rogan for propagating “misleading and false claims on his podcast, provoking distrust in science and medicine” throughout the pandemic. 

The group also remarked that Dr. Malone had been suspended from Twitter for a similar pattern of misinformation.

“Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Joe Rogan has repeatedly spread misleading and false claims on his podcast, provoking distrust in science and medicine,” says the letter. “This is not only a scientific or medical concern; it is a sociological issue of devastating proportions, and Spotify is responsible for allowing this activity to thrive on its platform.”

Rogan’s show is exclusive to Spotify. The show has become a target of the left-leaning media throughout the pandemic. Last week, former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann called him the “stupidest f—–g guy on the planet.” 

CNN invited one of the signatories from the letter to speak about their effort on the network’s struggling morning show “New Day.” During the episode, co-host Brianna Keilar ridiculed Rogan for “moving the goalposts” after a recent guest fact-checked him. 

Spotify has not publicly addressed the letter as of now.

    A lie will travel half way around the world before the truth puts on its boots. That was the point.

    @pandusa:
    Unfortunately, my PhD is in Memeology and not a proper medical field.
    All the same, if there’s a counter letter that needs my signature, please let me know!

    HERDOCKTOR- Wow on that letter as a nurse… and you as HERDOCKTOR we would have had standing! Been regarded as authorities on the subject. We wouldn’t have signed such a thing.

    Our money is on Rogan. Spotify would be wise to remember that Rogan catapulted their subscriber count, and they will follow him with their numbers; subscriptions and money.

    Clown World………

    Sorry to tell you folks this, but we have LOST. AND. It is because of YOU. Not being mean & nasty…YOU are victims here. YOU were brainwashed from your childhood. Don’t believe me? Go back and watch old movies.
    I watched some old black & white 1950s Westerns that starred James Stewart. I quickly realized that there was MORE PROPAGANDA in 90 minutes from those movies than a MONTH of CNN propaganda.

    Sadly, most of you are too dumb to break out of the mental prison these movies & TV shows have created for you. You are also so craven that YOU are MORE of a danger to us than full on Libtards.

    To give an extremely appropriate historical example…YOU are the 2 faced Jew who turned Anne Frank into the Gestapo.
