Okay, but the question isn’t whether or not Rogan sometimes has on progressives (sometimes he does, although I can almost guarantee he has on more right-wingers). The problem is that he platforms guys like Alex Jones and Jordan Peterson which DOES funnel guys down the alt-right rabbit hole. This is a function of a number of things and the YouTube algorithm is partially responsible. The question is not “is Joe Rogan alt-right?” or “does Joe Rogan ever say liberal things?”. The question is “does Joe Rogan, in practice, function as a gateway to the alt-right?”. And the answer to that question is unequivocally yes.
