'I’m not a respected source of information, even for me,' the podcast host said to clarify his controversial comments.
'I’m not a respected source of information, even for me,' the podcast host said while clarifying controversial comments about the COVID-19 shot.
Rogan, whose audience is in the hundreds of millions, drew backlash — anda rebuke from Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government’s top infectious diseases expert — when he said on an episode of his “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast released on Spotify last week that “if you’re a healthy person and you’re exercising all the time and you’re young and you’re eating well, I don’t think you need to worry about this.”
On Thursday, Rogan clarified in a video shared on YouTube that he was “not an anti-vaxx person.” “In fact, I said I believe they’re safe and I encourage many people to take them. My parents were vaccinated,” he explained. “I just said, ‘I don’t think that if you’re a young, healthy person that you need it.’ Their argument was, you need it for other people.”
“So you don’t transmit the other virus,” said his cohost.“That makes more sense,” agreed Rogan. “But that’s a different argument. That’s a different conversation.”Watch the video here:Rogan, whose show was snapped up by Spotify in a $100 million deal last year, later attempted to explain away the comments by saying how he doesn’t plan what he says on air. headtopics.com
He’s often high or drinking alcohol during the shows, he said, before accusing “clickbaity” journalists of blowing his comments out of proportion.“I’m not a doctor, I’m a fucking moron and I’m a cage fighting commentator who’s a dirty standup comedian who just told you I’m drunk most of the time and I do testosterone and I smoke a lot of weed but I’m not a respected source of information, even for me,” he said.
“If I say things, I’m always going ‘check on that Jamie, I don’t know if that’s true,’” Rogan added. “But I at least try to be honest about what I’m saying.” Read more: HuffPost »

Fed policies could end up threatening the long-term health of the U.S. dollar, investing magnate Stanley Druckenmiller told CNBC.
Fast advice for fast one liners.... Americans who do not want to be vaccinated right now can donate their vaccines to needy people around the world. Poor countries are begging for vaccines for their people. Why not turn vaccine refusal into a moral project? And that’s why I like watching Joe. He always says that but that doesn't stop hi. From spouting ignorant ass opinions constantly on the most popular podcast in the world
crush the lies... exposeHATE4PROFIT time to DefundFASCISTS and ALL who support them. Accountability is key in 2021!! Competence is essential in 2022!!! He was just stating an opinion. People need to quit looking for things to get offended over. It's a personal opinion, not advice. Dummies. “I take no responsibility...”
Should have kept your opinions to your self. I went & listened to your podcast. You preached about not getting vaccinated Taking responsibility is always a good first step! If you are not a good leader and you know it. GET OFF the limelight. Common sense mister, common sense. Isn’t it kind of refreshing to see someone admit they’re wrong? Not like the far left and alt right morons that frequent this world
Joe Rogan addresses his controversial anti-vaccine commentsJoe Rogan, Spotify's top podcast host, responded to the controversy surrounding his remarks that healthy young people should not get the Covid vaccine. Did he also address his Douche Baggyness? Spotify get rid of joe. His statements will kill people and you will be sued Love how Rogan just farts on any attempt to cancel him.
So weird that the fifth funniest guy on News Radio isn't a super reliable source for medical advice. chilira Ha—most agree w/that statement. But guess what? It’s called accountability. You’re speaking to the ma$$e$. You know what you’re doing. JoeRogan backpeddlingagain bullshit money Wow, what a headline. Glad you are self aware of needing clickbait to survive.
Did anybody even actually listen to the original podcast? He never once said people shouldn’t get vaccinated. And even if he did say that—so what? A hard and fast rule for this life, don’t take medical advice from celebrities. This douche, Jenny McCarthy, Kat Von D.... Giving importance to this guy is useless!
He always says he’s a moron and that people should educate themselves. The Fox News defence I’m tired of these people saying “ why would anyone believe me?” Look at all the fox talkers Tell you what, he is a more respected sorce than huff post, or cnn, or nyt.
John Oliver says 'stop listening' to 'moron' Joe Rogan on COVID vaccinesJoe Rogan caused controversy by saying younger people didn't need the vaccine but later walked back the comments. To Joe Rogan's credit, he did admit to being a moron.....lol That damn ratings thingy is pissing Johnny off..... so attack attack attack...... whatever you do Johnny ..... don’t debate it...... Because John is a doctor.
Sounds like his lawyers are afraid he will get sued and told him to qualify his outrageous statements. Guess it's not enough tragedy that 575K Americans have died from covid; he won't understand how quickly the virus spreads until someone close to him dies. Then what are you doing with your life? Just spreading bull....?
The problem with people like rogan, even though they come out and say they're a moran, their followers who are morans think he's being forced to say it! Birds of a feather flock together! He’s said this many, many times. What Rogan said was harmful to defeating the virus and getting the country back to normalcy!
That's what people like. Crazy people ;( It’s a podcast by a comedian folks, relax. If some of you need to go find your safe space please do. Freedom of speech!? Perhaps Fox news will take the cue and admit the same to her followers that they’re the de facto number one source of lies and misinformation to the world!
we know you are.
John Oliver Pummels Tucker Carlson and Joe Rogan for Spreading Vaccine MythsThe segment involves more than just name-calling, though calling Carlson a “scrunch-faced fear baboon” is pretty good. Please tell me your favorite ingredient in the vaccine?
Well thank you for your honesty at last Joe. He let his kids get it! I live next to sparrow hospital in lansing, where they have a 2 month old with covid and little kids on ventilators!!!! joerogan let his kids get it! Put them around people who had it, and let them get it. Finally can agree with that Putz.
The fact that millions of people hold these shit-talking fucking morons up to be the bastions of masculine prowess and wisdom that proves to continually be the festering pox that kills everything good. “I’d like to have a beer with him. He must be a genius.” (You won’t; he’s not) Joe has a lot of influence. So maybe just maybe when he initially made the comments he should have said listen people I am not a medical expert so I am just talking shit. He didn't do that though, what he did was tell 21 year olds not to get vaccinated with a serious tone.
Watch his clarification. Don't rely on interpretation. When you have such a huge influence on people, you are no longer just Joe from down the street who's a fucking idiot. That's what Joe doesn't understand he wants all of the perks of being rich and famous with none of the downsides of it. This man is a conspiracy theories spreader.
oh yeah, exactly the bullshit Alex Jones say and what HE argues in court. they are not official news sources and therefore not responsible for their content. cept, they are. when millions of people listen to you, and you pawn your show off as informative or investigative it is. He has never claimed to be. He runs a podcast and can share whatever opinions he likes. Listen, or don't listen. Agree, or disagree with his point of view. That's how it works. How this is such big news is really rather quite odd.
Dr. Fauci Responds To Joe Rogan On Vaccines: ‘You Can Get Infected, And Will Get Infected’“Even if you don’t have symptoms, you are propagating the outbreak because...you may inadvertently and innocently then infect someone else who might infect someone who really could have a problem with a severe outcome.'
joerogan is a podcast host not a doc, and by his own admission he's not a good source of info, that should do, no?!🙃 If he doesn't want to get vaccinated that's fine too! it's his choice! in my view we shouldn't be policing the public views about the vaccine - my 2 cents😂 100 million dollar man Aaaah, the ‘Sydney Powell’ defence?
More like 'Oops! Got caught, better back peddle before I am held liable.' So his excuse is that he's a drunk and he's a drug addict and therefore he shouldn't be held responsible for anything he says? Sheesh. He's a moron, too, he's quite right about that, but if there's a law against spreading dangerous misinformation, he needs a bloody big fine.
But does he realize he IS a respected source of info for his dumbass listeners im no fan, but at least he walked it back. ill take that all day over tucker or so many that will die on thier hill of bs. good on em. What’s sad is that joerogan doesn’t even recognize his own influence on others. I personally have worked with such people who regard Joe as one of the smartest people in the world. So please joerogan Stop giving out medical advice
So he admits he’s full of shit at last. How do these charlatans get such an audience?
Dr. Fauci Responds To Joe Rogan On Vaccines: ‘You Can Get Infected, And Will Get Infected’“Even if you don’t have symptoms, you are propagating the outbreak because...you may inadvertently and innocently then infect someone else who might infect someone who really could have a problem with a severe outcome.' The first sign of Muhammad Qasim’s dreams being true is that enemies will increase terrorist activity & weaken Pakistan internally. They will attempt to make it Tora Bora - a terrorist state. More details on I owe you an apology to ever doubt your sincerity and professionalism. It’s was just like a dream to me when I received my first payment. After my second payment it became a reality now after several payments it has become a way of life. wilfred_1Btc
When he dishes out ‘advise’ that f**ks with his wallet watch him canoe out of this sh*t 🛶 He’s the fuck boy siren Then why the hell did you do it a-hole Honestly I don’t know why we’re talking about this. We’re not taking medical advice from a radio host. What are we? Republicans? Then maybe he shouldn't give advice that could endanger the public...🙄
Honestly, if you look to Joe Rogan for your healthcare advice you have bigger problems than Covid. i.e. He says stuff for hits. Please stop retweeting his 'advice'. Brain cells are fried
