Joe Rogan astounded by lack of coverage of Twitter Files: ‘As big a scandal as Watergate’

For years Democrats and their media allies have likened nearly every aspect of the ongoing witch hunt against Donald J. Trump to the Watergate scandal that brought down President Richard M. Nixon. But none of them compare to the damning revelations contained in the ongoing release of internal documents from Twitter that show the government’s influence on the social media giant to censor and suppress information that didn’t fit the Democratic Party agenda.

During a recent edition of his popular Spotify show, podcaster Joe Rogan explained that the “Twitter Files” which have been published as new owner Elon Musk implements a new policy of transparency at the San Francisco-based company, is really comparable to the scandal that began with the 1972 break-in of the Democratic Party’s national headquarters at the Watergate hotel complex in Washington, D.C. and the subsequent coverup that ended with Nixon’s 1974 resignation only two years after his landslide reelection bid which he won by 520-17 electoral votes.

On Friday’s episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” the host sat down with political commentator Kyle Kulinski for one of his trademark, wide-ranging, extended interviews when the topic of the reporting of the Twitter documents by journalists including Matt Taibbi, Bari Weiss and Michael Shellenberger came up during a discussion of free speech on internet platforms, the media and gatekeepers.


“‘Who’s gonna watch the watchmen’ is the old saying,” Kulinski said of the unaccountability of the American thought police. “So like, you set up this… overlord group that gets to determine everything. But it’s like, what about when they’re wrong? And they’re gonna be wrong from time to time? Cause all — sometimes the conventional wisdom ends up being wrong.”

“Sometimes it ends up being right. But you never, you don’t know. You have to, like you said, it’s gonna be messy. You gotta try to figure it out. And anybody putting their thumb on the scale and trying to change the outcome by, you know, fiat from above. That’s not the way it’s supposed to work,” he said.

“And it’s not just that their conventional wisdom is going to be wrong,” Rogan said. “It’s that they’re being fed propaganda. And they’re disseminating it. Ad hoc with no questioning it whatsoever. No pretense, no worry.”

The conversation turned to mainstream media reporters, whose gullibility, slothfulness and raw political partisanship have cratered public trust in the journalistic profession.

“They have a lot of sources inside the FBI and the CIA. And if the government comes out with their official line, they just write it up like little stenographers. They’re stenographers, they’re not journalists. They’re not reporters. You’re supposed to fact-check them too,” Kulinski said.

“One of the best examples of that is the Twitter files,” Rogan said, stressing the importance of Musk’s transparency. “You see no coverage of this on CNN, no coverage of this astounding collusion between intelligence agencies and a social media network to suppress accurate information that would harm the political party that’s in power.”

“Which is f**king wild. It’s wild that the news isn’t covering this cause like, arguably, that’s as big a scandal as Watergate. It’s as big a scandal as any other times in the past where we’ve found that there’s been some really shady s**t going on that would change the way people would see a narrative,” Rogan added.
