The censorship-happy Washington Post could barely contain itself as it declared in a headline that a “misinformation reckoning” is now hitting Spotify thanks to mega-podcaster Joe Rogan’s shows concerning masks and vaccinations.

“New: Spotify is now facing the same reckoning on misinformation that has long focused on social media sites like Facebook, highlighting how the public debate about how misinfo spreads is evolving,” Washington Post writer Cristiano Limo tweeted.

What stands out here is his reference to public debate about how misinformation spreads. The only public debate out there on that issue is between leftists and media propaganda outlets. And there has been no reference to exactly what was “misinformation” on Rogan’s show. Those parroting that talking point seem to just not approve of any discourse that is anti-vaccine or anti-mask.

“The controversy highlights how the debate over how false and misleading medical information spreads is shifting to focus on a broader array of companies, particularly as social media companies deplatform more purveyors of misinformation,” the leftist media outlet reported.

President Joe Biden is on the same page as the Washington Post and has previously asserted that social media platforms such as Facebook are “killing people” by allowing the spread of COVID misinformation. More recently, he has said that such platforms need to be more proactive in curbing misinformation.

Now, he’s widened his attack to also include broadcasters and television personalities over misinformation dissemination. In December, Biden proclaimed during an address that vaccine hesitancy has “been fueled by dangerous misinformation on cable TV and social media.”

“These companies and personalities are making money by peddling lies and allowing misinformation that can kill their own customers and their own supporters,” he charged. “It’s wrong, it’s immoral and I call on the purveyors of these lies and misinformation to stop it.”

In January, Biden made a “special appeal to social media companies and media outlets” to “deal with the misinformation and disinformation that’s on your shows.”

Last year, Democrats on the House Energy Committee held a session on “disinformation and extremism in the media” according to the Washington Post. In April of last year, the Senate Commerce Committee convened a hearing on how to promote reliable sources of medical information that focused on “media outlets, including television, radio, and online platforms.”

A number of leftist lawmakers are joining leftist media outlets such as the Washington Post by focusing on how Spotify is spreading medical misinformation and discussing what can be done about limiting their freedom of speech and the right to conduct business as they see fit in the United States.

Reaction to the spreading of misinformation accusations by the Washington Post was swift and harsh:
