Rumble Offers Joe Rogan $100 Million to Host Podcast on Their Platform with No Censorship
Embattled podcaster Joe Rogan has received an offer of $100 million to host his podcast on the alt video platform, Rumble, without the specter of censorship.
“Hey Joe Rogan,” Rumble wrote in a message to Rogan, “we are ready to fight alongside you.”
The YouTube competitor is rolling out the red carpet for Rogan to host his podcast on their platform where he will be shielded from cancel culture and the venomous left-wing mob out to snuff free speech and expression.
“We stand with you, your guests, and your legion of fans in desire for real conversation. So we’d like to offer you 100 million reasons to make the world a better place,” Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski said in his pleading statement to Rogan.
“How about you bring all your shows to Rumble, both old and new, with no censorship, to 100 million bucks over four years?” he continued.
“This is our chance to save the world,” Pavlovski wrote. “And yes, this is totally legit.”
The full message can be seen here:
Rogan recently signed a huge exclusive deal with tech giant Spotify, but as Big League Politics noted at the time, that deal likely left him in a precarious position with regards to his ability to speak freely on his podcast:
“Stand-up comedian and UFC commentator Joe Rogan announced that his iconic podcast, which has frequently served as a platform for individuals like Elon Musk and Alex Jones to challenge the political establishment, will soon be hosted exclusively on Spotify.
“It will remain FREE, and it will be the exact same show. It’s just a licensing deal, so Spotify won’t have any creative control over the show. They want me to just continue doing it the way I’m doing it right now … I’m excited to have the support of the largest audio platform in the world and I hope you folks are there when we make the switch!” Rogan said in an Instagram post about the news.
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Rogan’s deal is worth more than $100 million, meaning that Rogan is cashing out due to his massive success…
Rogan’s fan base is worried that the news will ultimately mean that he will be more controlled and the podcast will lose the independence that has made it grow into such a powerhouse…
Despite the criticism, Rogan may be leaving YouTube because of the Draconian censorship policies on that platform. He has frequently raised the issue of digital censorship on his show and criticized the restrictive policies of the tech giants.
Big League Politics has reported on many instances of YouTube capriciously removing content considered to be wrongthink, with the latest example being the Plandemic movie about the coronavirus that has gone viral.“
Rogan might be wise to take this offer before he has to perform more cowering to the mob and further emasculate himself to his opposition.
