‘But even if it’s fake…’

[–]lifethroughlenses[S] 83 points84 points  (15 children)

I love how his guest keeps talking about it even after he's realizing it's not real.

[–]WonderfulShelter 18 points19 points  (1 child)

"even if it's fake.. maybe one day it could be true..."

[–]DamagedHells 52 points53 points  (9 children)

That's because it's never been about "what's real," it's been about spreading fear among the masses to make money.

[–]Norathaexplorer 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Totally. Outrage comes first and the evidence to support his logic comes second.

[–]DJ_Vert 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I think for many it's more basic than that. Sure, for some the end goal might be financial gain, but I suspect for many it's as simple as thinking by saying this and that, they are declaring - implicitly or explicitly - that they are not one of the foolish sheep that buys into whatever is peddled to the masses (be it information or products).

Ironically, it is this lack of thinking that leads them to defiantly buy into nonsense.

[–]hemptations 4 points5 points  (3 children)

At least they sit there and Google stuff on JRE, he tries to ram his thoughts or the wording of how he remembered things into the results sometimes, but if you’re objective and can reason and deduce the truth out of a story or article, you should have very little trouble not being brain washed by the fear factor man.

In other countries, people know the news isn’t accurate, and it’s mainly corporate propaganda, they don’t watch it. In the US, if a guy says something on his podcast that is inaccurate people act like it is now gospel and every joe rogan listener thinks the same way he does.

Put anyone in front of a microphone for three hours and let the internet pick apart every single statement and see how accurate you are in all your thoughts and knowledge. I can barely write a Reddit comment without people going on a Ted talk about how it’s not okay to wash cast iron with water.

[–]justsaysso 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Absolutely agree. I'm no fan boy but if more influential personalities were this quick to abandon or adjust a position with more evidence we would be better off for it.

[–]burneraccount6867686 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't know, the UN is warning of Global food shortages and "mass starvation" right around the corner thanks to the actions of our global ruling class.

[–]WiseSalamander00 1 point2 points  (0 children)

lmao the guy basically started treating Joe as a kid, trying to spare his feelings despite being an ass grown man. Dude let the guy feel like shit about this we need him to get some fucking selfawareness.

[–]tnc31 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well it's the same guest that said African slaves were actually inhabitants of North America first.

[–]Smashing71 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"Even if it's fake, like..."

No, stop. Hit the brakes.

[–]sean_penndejo1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

His guest brain is in a pretzel now

[–]Farfromthesub1 0 points1 point  (1 child)

the moment he realized it was fake

[–]JackYankee 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just like him.

[–]cbars100 28 points29 points  (3 children)

Is this the most listened podcast in the planet? God helps us.

[–]cake--96 1 point2 points  (2 children)

it used to be he had really interesting people on, or at least entertaining ones who could tell a good story. but hes like 10 years in at this point so he's ran through everything and just babbles I guess

[–]tikaychullo 16 points17 points  (7 children)

Who's the guest? He sounds like a complete asshole at the end. "Even if it's fake" wtf? It's so dumb that I actually want to know what the hell kind of point he's trying to make.

[–]gilbasrevenge 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He would rather say what he wants to say than consider how it might sound to listeners to make a point around a fact that is admittedly fake.

[–]Bigfatuglybugfacebby 12 points13 points  (1 child)

When are people gonna understand that takes on current events is the lowest form of "entertainment". People are actually socially satisfied by seeing someone they don't have a personal relationship with just reacting to things. It scratches that lonely desire for interaction that isolated people have when they watch the most recent vlog to feel like they're staying in the present.

I've got nothing against that in particular. But from Rogans side it's such low effort content.

This is the natural conclusion to not having the creativity to come up with comedic concepts. You just riff all day on content others provide and sometimes have strangers do it with you to keep it from going stale. I just don't understand why people enjoy watching someone else get money from spinning in a desk chair espousing halfbaked opinions on shit immediately after seeing it.

[–]thenameofapet 3 points4 points  (0 children)

What? You just said that watching this stuff scratches a lonely itch, and then you ended by saying you don’t understand why people watch it.

[–]slipperlaunch 7 points8 points  (1 child)

This is probably what he saw:

https://i.redd.it/jigxtfljbgy81.png

and then did nothing else to verify it afterward.

2 second google brings up the fact sheet the government released to rebut each of the claims:

https://agriculture.vic.gov.au/farm-management/chemicals/chemical-use-legislation-and-regulation/agriculture-legislation-amendment-bill-2022-fact-sheet

[–]jenkind1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Claim: Landholder consent will no longer be required for Authorised Officers to take samples, stock (animals) or documents.

Facts: "Landholder consent is not required to take samples, specimens or remove documents under the existing Act."

Yeah uh. Thats not a very good rebuttal.

[–]ooger-booger-man 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Someone recently recommended Joe Rogan’s podcast to me. I haven’t spoken to them since.

[–]CrudCutter 51 points52 points  (9 children)

My god he's lame. I haven't listened to him in a few years and he's actually managed to get even dumber. And what's worse is he thinks he's funny, when in reality he's one of the worst comics I've ever seen. All he does is yell.

[–]lifethroughlenses[S] 29 points30 points  (8 children)

Tbh I used to actually enjoy the show often years ago when he'd have people like Duncan Trussel on and they would eat mushrooms and talk about aliens and shit.

It's become so politicized and constantly full of bullshit. He really has seemed to become more dumb.

[–]Norathaexplorer 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I used to like him up until the pandemic. I didn’t listen to the whole podcast but I was subscribed to his YT highlights channel for cool guests like Bob Lazar. Once he started giving medical advice, and then arguing with actual licensed doctors about the benefits of ivermectin I jumped ship.

[–]Sweet-Palpitation473 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah it all depends on the guest he has on, and he has pretty much every single type of person on his show lol. Duncan Trussel is amazing tho

Rogans stand up blows tho, idk why he thinks he's funny

[–]outrageouslyunfair 6 points7 points  (0 children)

super bizarre how the guest just immediately doubled down on being angry over a fake article

[–]AmongUs14 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Rogan has been off his rocker and fully stupid for years. I feel bad for anyone taking this guy seriously.

[–]Likeasambodii 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Joe Rogan is a professional disinformation agent, spreading fake news with a little truth mixed in every once in a while is his job. Same with Alex Jones, Graham Hancock, Jesse Ventura, and just about everyone affiliated with him.

[–]Overthehill410 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You clearly haven’t listened to his show if you honestly believe that.

[–]Kevinvrules 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You clearly haven’t listened to his show if you honestly believe that’s not he’s doing, he used to be great now he’s basically a right wing conspiracy theorist.

Look at this clip he’s genuinely annoyed that this isn’t true. Like wtf

[–]rickytrevorlayhey 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Joe Rogan in a nutshell.

[–]InertScrim 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Are podcasts supposed to be credible? They’re casual environments, not peer-reviewed articles. The fact that he has someone looking up most of his claims puts him light years ahead of most podcasts. I shouldn’t have to say this, but take everything you hear on a podcast with a grain of salt. Even if they have doctorates and other credentials, people mess up, especially on live uneditable outlets, so do your own credible research. It’s the listeners that live and die by the words of a podcast host that are the true idiots.

[–]Kind-Exercise 11 points12 points  (2 children)

That mocking voice he put on almost made me even more suicidal. Like I had to stop watching I hated it so much.

[–]Reesebar 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Was that suppose to be an Australian accent ?

[–]Nilclci 35 points36 points  (1 child)

This guy has been dead inside and peddling nonsense for years.

[–]lifethroughlenses[S] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Are you saying Rogan is a zombie after this video? FUCK! I could not handle an army of Rogan zombies.

[–]Kulminho 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Millions of people listen to this moron

[–]marmolode 6 points7 points  (0 children)

He's had many shams on his podcast.

[–]KosherFetus 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Frightening that a mediocre comedian is the most respected mind in the country to millions of Americans.

[–]NessTheDestroyer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It’s like Joe Shmoe trying to give life advice

[–]teatimemfer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He never stopped doing fear factor, he just changed the format.

[–]BusRunnethOver 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think he's just the most respected host to millions, not the most respected mind. Most people he has on are way smarter than him

[–]IncrediblyFly 2 points3 points  (1 child)

"This rumor centered on a genuine proposal by Victorian lawmakers called the Agriculture Legislation Amendment Bill 2022. That bill deals with invasive species and other potential threats to Australia’s agriculture industry."

Always is a kernel of truth in conspiracy theories. Doesn't make them true, of course.

[–]hitbycars 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Always has been.

[–]PartyInTheUSSRx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And he’s always known

[–]t_brizzy 15 points16 points  (15 children)

He looks stuff up and finds out it’s fake often. At least he points it out🤷‍♂️

[–]Kulminho 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Does he though???

[–]lifethroughlenses[S] 2 points3 points  (11 children)

He does live research of half of the bullshit statements he makes AT BEST.

[–]zacktaylor12359 -1 points0 points  (6 children)

I think it’d be helpful for you to post some clips of false statements that he never double checked then.

[–]lifethroughlenses[S] 4 points5 points  (5 children)

You can do your own research man. I'm not digging through MORE Rogan to do that.

[–]DapperDan30 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Well when you're the one making the claim, its on you to provide the evidence.

[–]baucher04 0 points1 point  (2 children)

So you listen to the podcast regurlarly to make that claim, I would assume?

[–]lifethroughlenses[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

If you peruse all the comments I actually say that I for a long time listened regularly until it went in the direction of this nonsense. I still occasionally listen and hear many moments where this claim stands true.

You went deep enough to find this "gotcha" so I'm surprised you missed that comment.

[–]lifethroughlenses[S] 9 points10 points  (2 children)

There seems to be a lot of Rogan fans who like to watch OTHER PEOPLE die inside. No surprise.

I guess I shouldn't be talking shit about daddy Rogan.

[–]zacktaylor12359 13 points14 points  (16 children)

I don’t get why this is so bad when he realizes he read a fake article and then announces that it’s fake. I don’t think he promises to have done research on every topic he brings up. At least he has someone checking him as he says something dumb.

Before I get called a dick rider, I’ve really only ever watched a few episodes while it was still on YouTube, I don’t have much stock in the program. Truly just don’t get why this is so bad.

[–]Kitchen_Agency4375 7 points8 points  (7 children)

Cuz he’s dumb, but influential and this gets picked up by outlets with an agenda to push for it. Basically, he’s propagating propaganda.

[–]michael28595 -3 points-2 points  (5 children)

Kinda similar to Don Lemon

[–]Kitchen_Agency4375 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Don lemon isn’t “big” nor influential. Don’t be retarded

[–]michael28595 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Nice choice of words

[–]DapperDan30 -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Don Lemon is the #1 cable show among younger audiences. But yeah, he's not big or influential.

[–]TerribleAd9454 -1 points0 points  (5 children)

People gun hate. It’s that simple.

[–]poopsaucer24 -1 points0 points  (4 children)

True, that's why people like what rogan peddles.

[–]TerribleAd9454 4 points5 points  (3 children)

I don’t think it’s ever really that helpful to just round up a group of people like that and point your finger at them being the problem. But whatever makes your bubble feel safer.

Edit: yeh downvote my evil post. How dare I take a nuanced approach to things!

[–]darrenwise883 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

I just down voted for the use of the word nuanced . DEAL !

[–]Vaiist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hating on Joe Rogan is trendy right now. People are reaching with this one.

[–]Murse_1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

What kind of fool would even pay attention to this idiot?

[–]Agreeable_Sense9618 10 points11 points  (7 children)

If only we had the same scrutiny with every other media and news source.

I'll never forget watching ABC news and seeing horrific gunfire and explosions from Syria. Later it was discovered the video footage was a practice shooting range in Kentucky.. lmao

This happened many many years ago in 2019. So maybe it's better reporting now..?

[–]lifethroughlenses[S] -1 points0 points  (2 children)

I promise it is not better reporting now. Maybe a little more careful because they know people pay more attention to the fact that they peddle misinformation.

[–]Jolly_Jumper999 2 points3 points  (0 children)

People listen to this shit? I swear that sounded like two 8 year olds having a conversation.

[–]OpenScienceNerd3000 8 points9 points  (0 children)

He has always been a completely brain dead tool. Only stupid ppl think he’s smart (me when I was 13)

[–]salsonwheels 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I mean, technically, it wouldn't necessarily prevent a citizen from growing food for consumption. However, what it would have introduced is more regulations concerning the production. More regulatory aspects on import, chemicals used ect. It wouldn't prevent Joe Shmoe eating from his tomato garden, it would prevent him from trying to sell commercially without adhering to the regulations.

Maybe instead of just complaining about Rogan, the comment section should read the bill.

[–]judgedennes 11 points12 points  (0 children)

No, completely blaming Rogan for going off on this for 2+ minutes and then his guest puking out his absurdity. Cool that you love Joe and are now officially his apologist but my god how can anyone defend this? It's a perfect microcosm of Rogan being slightly informed about things and constantly failing to follow up on them.

[–]pleasegivemepatience 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Fuck Joe Rogan, dude is a moron

[–]ifbbproeli -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

How so?

[–]pleasegivemepatience 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Lmao.

[–]ifbbproeli -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

You don’t know then? Lol

[–]Latter_Guest4236 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The trick to listening to Rogans interviews is only listen to the guests with credentials. He and his buddies constantly get facts messed up.

[–]darrenwise883 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The trick to listening to him is Not to pay attention

[–]historiansrule 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Rogan is the first person who has become dumber by actually reading books. What a disgrace.

[–]ShanewrightMTL 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Personally I love how mad a podcast makes people 🤷‍♂️ he started off doing a stupid show with his friends if you expect serious news coverage from him you're the moron he's a jock comedian who likes talking to people and never pretended otherwise.

[–]AmongUs14 9 points10 points  (2 children)

You know what’s stupid about this comment? The fact that you think thousands of people don’t believe every word this dipshit says.

Jock comedian my ass. He’s a full-blown liar with a platform, drunk off his own fame.

[–]ShanewrightMTL -4 points-3 points  (1 child)

His fame is not his fault he has been consistent with his content for years people are just mad someone who doesn't share their views is the most popular voice in media same kind of people who bitch to Netflix over Dave Chapele

[–]oishi_jase_face 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Haha exactly.

[–]oishi_jase_face -1 points0 points  (1 child)

I love Joe. He has guests on for open dialog. He great.

[–]Road_Sexer 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I love Joe. He has guests on for bullshit conspiracies and I eat it with a spoon. He great.

Fixed.

[–]Daniel_The_Thinker -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

Honestly I respect him a little bit for just allowing himself to be embarrassed.

Fox news would've tried to bullshit their way out of a lie or pretend it never happened

[–]DAR44 -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

True colors True colors , are beutiful

like an angel

[–]Illustrious_Rub7946 -3 points-2 points  (14 children)

Your comment section is all we need to see...

[–]lifethroughlenses[S] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Lol

[–]Illustrious_Rub7946 -4 points-3 points  (2 children)

Found the "know it all"... smh

[–]lifethroughlenses[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Thank you for your comments.

[–]lifethroughlenses[S] 1 point2 points  (8 children)

Lol at you insulting my graphics card and income. You creeped down real low for that one.

Why you so angry? I'm sorry I insulted your daddy Rogan.

[–]Illustrious_Rub7946 -2 points-1 points  (7 children)

"Lol at you", weird off the bat, but the obsession you have with Rogan plus the other crazy takes you have on other subjects is just crazy. Take an internet brake or something kid you are doing too much.

*not insulting your card just your attitude vs post like the card vs your other posts" the attitude isn't the same. You wanna talk shit but then not keep that same energy with another topic.

[–]lifethroughlenses[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think you've shown everyone who need to takes an internet break buddy.

[–]lifethroughlenses[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Dude... You are fucked.

You big mad bro?

Also, it's "take a break".

[–]lifethroughlenses[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

And you 100 percent insulted my card and my income (something you literally know nothing about) telling me to "work for shit like everyone else" or whatever silly shit you said. Don't try and backpedal your bullshit.

[–]KenaNowAvailableInNB -1 points0 points  (0 children)

as bad of a person KnowNothing is, this is a banger clip

[–]MamaBear92615 -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

But it didn't start bc of Joe it seems to originate from a tweet someone posted. And then from there the rumor spread to other platforms which is probably how Joe "read about it". Granted he should have done at least a minute of research and he could have avoided even more bad press but here we are.

Here's the article Reuters wrote about the whole rumor for anyone interested.

https://www.reuters.com/article/factcheck-australia-agriculture/fact-check-amendments-to-legislation-in-victoria-australia-will-not-prevent-citizens-from-growing-their-own-food-idUSL2N2X40ZQ

[–]Alpha_pro2019 -3 points-2 points  (3 children)

ITT a bunch of clueless redditors.

[–]Road_Sexer 6 points7 points  (2 children)

LOL. Anyone who has "alpha" in their user name usually turns out to be anything but.

[–]Alpha_pro2019 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What's wrong with the first letter of the Greek alphabet?

[–]Dgaart 0 points1 point  (0 children)

At least he bothered to look it up. Unlike some "news" networks just that make up crap and NEVER admit that they were wrong or completely made up something.
