Within the phrases of Joe Rogan himself, “I am not a revered supply of knowledge”.

Regardless of the ABC’s Gruen clip clearly being an enormous piss-take, Rogan tried to slam the pretend vaccine advert to his 13 million Instagram followers this morning.
“Not solely has Australia had the worst response to the pandemic with dystopian, police-state measures which are really inconceivable to the remainder of the civilised world, however additionally they have absolutely the dumbest propaganda,” Rogan captioned his video earlier than studying that the 36-second Gruen clip was not an actual commercial.

Within the clip, an anti-vaxxer who’s going into anaphylactic shock questions the protection and historical past of the Epipen that’s about to avoid wasting his life.
“What model Epipen is that? What’s in it? How lengthy did they analysis it for? What are the stats from Europe?” the person questions earlier than asking what Joe Rogan’s ideas are on it first.
“What does Joe Rogan say?” he continues as he begins dropping consciousness. “Name Joe.”
“We don’t query the science when our life will depend on it, so why query it when tens of millions of lives rely on it?” the Gruen voiceover concludes. “Science has our backs. Get the vax.”
Now, certainly anybody with greater than two mind cells may immediately inform that the 36-second clip was not an official authorities advert.
Realistically, why the hell would the Australian authorities ever make reference to Joe Rogan — an American podcaster, who literally used Ivermectin AKA horse paste to “cure” his COVID diagnosis in September — of their official pro-vaccination messaging?
However Rogan blindly sharing the “advert” with out even doing one fast Google search to confirm its validity first proves the precise downside the sketch calls out: Individuals, fuelled by a scarcity of analysis and no dependable sources, spreading misinformation on-line.
A very stunning self-own, actually.
EDIT: I’m dumb”
