Renowned Canadian psychologist and bestselling author Jordan Peterson revealed on Monday what he believes is the key to comedian Joe Rogan’s media accomplishments in a social media post supportive of the podcaster’s mega-success.

The comment came in response to a report that revealed Rogan’s audience exceeded the traffic of leading news shows, including top programs broadcast on Fox News and CNN, during the third quarter of 2021, according to average viewers per show based on Nielsen and Spotify statistics.

“That’s because he doesn’t lie. Or talk down to his audience. Or manipulate for his own narrow advantage. Go @joerogan. See you in three weeks in Austin,” Peterson wrote on Twitter.

Rogan came under fire recently when one of his episodes was removed from YouTube.

“This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s Community Guidelines,” now shows where the episode was previously posted.

Rogan invited Dr. Robert Malone onto his podcast after the scientist was banned from Twitter last week over the information he shared regarding the coronavirus. The episode discussed Malone’s vaccine concerns and views regarding COVID-19 communications in the media that he considered disturbing from his viewpoint as a scientist.

In response to the episode’s removal, Texas Republican Rep. Troy Nehls submitted Joe Rogan’s controversial podcast with Dr. Robert Malone to the Congressional Record on Monday after it had been removed on YouTube, saying the move will keep it from being censored.

“Today, I submitted the transcript from the @joerogan experience podcast episode #1757 with Dr. Robert Malone to the Congressional Record,” Nehls, who is also a medical doctor, tweeted.

“Big tech wants to restrict your access to this information- but they cannot censor the Congressional Record,” he added.

Nehls also posted the full episode transcript to his own congressional website.

The Daily Wire previously reported regarding the congressman’s statement in support of Rogan’s podcast:

“By deplatforming Dr. Robert Malone for voicing opposition and removing the interview, Twitter and YouTube are once again proving that they don’t work for their users but for big Pharma, big media, and the elites,” Nehls said in a statement.

“When we stray away from our core principles of freedom of speech, freedom of expression, and freedom of debate, democracy is lost. Today, I entered the transcript of the Joe Rogan Experience #1757 into the Congressional Record to preserve the podcast forever. Big Tech may be able to censor information on their own platforms, but they cannot censor the Congressional Record,” he added.

His statement also referred to Malone as “a widely published mRNA vaccine expert who went on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast to raise concerns over the COVID-19 vaccine.”

In addition, Rogan recently announced he was joining the free speech platform GETTR. The Daily Wire reported on the move:

“Join me on GETTR,” Rogan tweeted out to his millions of followers.

On GETTR, the host suggested his move to newer website was predicated by recent censorship from Twitter. “Just in case s*** over at Twitter gets even dumber, I’m here now as well. Rejoice!” he posted.
