Joe Rogan announced that Fox News and Conservative media outlets were the only ones that backed him when he faced charges of spreading vaccine misinformation earlier this year. “They had my back through it,” Rogan, 54, stated. “It was Fox News that had my f*****g back.’” Speaking on Tuesday’s episode of his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, Rogan complained that he felt Democrats had abandoned free speech and openness to other people’s opinions.

Rogan was speaking with comedian Fahim Anwar on the episode, where the pair debated the demonstrations Rogan met after he spoke with COVID-19 vaccine skeptics on an episode earlier this year. Prominent musicians, including Neil Young and Joni Mitchell, publicly left Spotify - the streaming service where Rogan has a $200million exclusive deal - stating that they would not rejoin until Rogan was booted from the platform. “Liberal was pro free speech, people were open minded, non-violent, and people were open to other people's ideas," Rogan announced. "And the Right was suppressive—nanny state. Condemned certain language, condemned certain behavior. That’s not the case today.” The pair addressed comedian Dave Chapelle, whose recent charges of transphobia in his material culminated in an on-stage attack throughout a set at the Hollywood Bowl in May. “Today the Left has gone so f*****g far left, so radical that the Right are the ones celebrating comedians, celebrating Chappelle,” Rogan stated. [tweet_embed] June 2, 2022[/tweet_embed] Rogan then voiced irony that it was Fox News that had his back when he was under attack earlier this year. “Would you ever think that they’d [Fox] be the ones to cape for you?” Anwar asked Rogan. “I’m so Liberal, I talk about it all the time. I’m not a Conservative, I’m not Conservative.” Rogan replied. In January, rock legend Neil Young addressed a letter to his label stating that he wanted all of his music removed from Spotify, blaming the platform for spreading vaccine misinformation. “I want you to let Spotify know immediately TODAY that I want all my music off their platform,” Young wrote in the letter, “I am doing this because Spotify is spreading fake information about vaccines – potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them.” “They can have Neil Young or Rogan. Not Both.” Young continued. [tweet_embed] June 2, 2022[/tweet_embed] The rocker was soon joined by others, including Joni Mitchell, Nils Lofgren, Graham Nash, David Crosby, and Stephen Stills. As of today, Rogan remains on Spotify, and Young remains off.
