An online petition has over 65,000 signatures from people who want to see Joe Rogan moderate one of the 2020 presidential debates.
The petition’s description notes that Joe Rogan is a widely respected host who has hosted interviews with politicians, economists, scientists, and other popular figures, who come from various walks of life.
He has experience with interviewing both progressive and conservative thinkers. He has an audience containing viewers from all areas of the political spectrum.
Joe Rogan is not registered under any political party and is well-known for having civil, productive, and interesting, conversations about political issues without partisan bias.
The mainstream media news organizations don’t moderate primary and general election debates—they cheerlead for the Democrats.
We are two decades into the 21st century now, it is beyond time to let new media into the criminally boring presidential debate process. At the very least, it may disrupt the left-wing propaganda machine. At best, almost any fresh perspective would make the debates more watchable.
But, as the Daily Dot notes, some voters are probably against the idea, as Rogan has been criticized for hosting “far right” personalities and a disproportionate amount of men to women.
However, a YouTube playlist includes 105 multihour episodes featuring Rogan’s conversations with female medical professionals, scientists, mixed martial artists, comedians, and other interview subjects recorded over the past six years. So there are plenty of viewpoints on this issue.
