A hand-wringing report complains that podcasts, which can be listened to on smartphones whenever the listener chooses, allegedly spread information that has not been verified or is just wrong.
The Brookings Institution determined that Steve Bannon’s War Room, a documentary on the alleged rigging of the 2020 U.S. election, has been downloaded over 135 million times and is responsible for the largest number of allegedly false claims.
Both the 2020 election and the coronavirus pandemic have been met with skepticism.
Joe Rogan, whose podcast is top-rated on Spotify, is also under scrutiny for reportedly using his platform to promote supposed untested Covid-19 therapies.
Rogan was chastised by the media and government agencies when he announced he successfully used prescribed Ivermectin to treat COVID-19.

The far-left Brookings Institute and its members were exposed as essential figures in the Russia Collusion hoax and the ‘Ukraine’ impeachment of President Trump in 2020. Reports linked the Institute’s spying activities to the Chinese Communist Party.
American Greatness’ Julie Kelly has written a paper detailing the relationships involving the Brookings Institute, the Democrat Party, and international organizations.
According to open records and federal court filings, the Brookings Institute collaborated with a Shanghai policy organization that the FBI has characterized as a front for China’s intelligence and spy recruiting activities.
The Brookings Doha Center, the political think tank’s Qatari outpost, announced in January 2018 that it had inked an MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) involving the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences. The academy is a Shanghai municipal government-funded policy institute that has triggered alarm bells at the FBI.
Since the think group employs many ex-government officials and over two twenty current foreign policy advisors to Joe Biden’s then- Presidential campaign and now Biden’s administration, the collaboration raised concerns regarding Chinese espionage efforts.
Steve Bannon’s War Room topped a list of the most popular podcasts spreading false information published in February by The New York Times and the liberal Brookings Institute.
Steve Bannon proudly accepted that as a compliment.
