Podcast giant Joe Rogan has taken aim at the media suppressing the Hunter Biden laptop story during the 2020 presidential election.
Rogan discussed recent censorship efforts during Saturday’s installment of YouTube’s “The Joe Rogan Experience” while taking a podcast interview featuring former President Trump at the derailed free speech event at Yale Law School.

“They’re setting a precedent and that precedent is that you can stifle information that makes you uncomfortable, you can stifle discussions where people have points of view that you don’t agree with. And you think you’re right. So you think you should be able to stop those views. That’s not the way to do it,” Rogan said. “It was never the way to do it. . It’s a dangerous precedent to set because when more power is gained by anyone, whether it’s the social media companies or the government or whoever it is, they can establish a narrative and that narrative is not maybe not honest. It’s a real problem. And the only way to know what’s real and what’s not is to let people do the talking.
Rogan later continued, “You gotta f—talk about things. You gotta have open communication. And the only way to know if someone’s full of s—or if someone’s lying or someone’s hiding information is letting people talk and letting people sort things out. The truth is complicated. There’s a lot going on in the world. And you can’t stifle information and debate. It’s not healthy for anyone. And you can’t do it just because you think your side is right. That’s not good. That’s not, that’s not what’s amazing in a free society. And you can’t decide that there are some ugly aspects of this society that you think should be removed. Because when you do that then people can decide that your aspect of society is ugly, your point of view is ugly.”

“And that’s the problem I had with, for example, the New York Post article about the Biden — the Hunter Biden laptop being taken down,” Rogan said. “It’s not that I’m a Trump supporter. I’m not. I didn’t vote for him. I’ve never voted for a Republican in my life. But you’re looking at something that’s a real information, and you’re hiding it from people because you don’t like the outcome that you think is going to come out of that information. That’s not – that’s not how we’re supposed to do things .
The Hunter Biden laptop story was reignited last week when The New York Times quietly verified that emails first published by the New York Post in 2020 were authenticated.
This was after members of the legacy media completely ignored the story, dismissed it as a right-wing plot or suggested it was the product of a “Russian disinformation” campaign.
