Spotify, the world’s largest music and podcast streaming platform, have seemingly reacted to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s statement that “mis- and disinformation” is the reason why they’ve failed to come up with more than one, single podcast episode. However, this isn’t an appeasement to the couple, but a clever way for the streaming provider to call Harry and Meghan’s bluff and force them to fulfil their multimillion-dollar contract.
There’s a lot of information on the internet about the COVID-19 pandemic, some of it is good and some of it is bad. But the mainstream media and certain elite leftists don’t believe that the general public has the intelligence to discern what voices and experts are accurate or not accurate. Instead, it wants to do that for the public as the mainstream media considers itself smarter and more sophisticated than those who live outside the leftist enclaves like New York City and Los Angeles.
No surprise, but Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle are rather supportive of this desire to let the media narrative, not facts, drive the news cycle.
As royals, the couple wanted to bury any negative story, mostly those about Meghan, her spending and bump clutching, while at the same time relentlessly flooding the media landscape with false or misleading stories about the couple that put them in a positive light.
Nonetheless, since leaving the royal family this strategy isn’t working quite as well when it comes to real world business application. After releasing a bizarrely worded statement against Spotify and Joe Rogan, for allegedly sharing “mis- or disinformation” about the vaccine and pandemic, the streaming giant called their bluff.
Spotify announced late on Sunday that they would be including “disclaimers” on certain podcasts about COVID-19. This move gives the couple nothing to hide behind, as they attempted to allege in their statement that it was due to Rogan and others sharing what they considered bad information about the vaccines and the pandemic as the reason why they failed to produce more than one measly 35-minute episode after a year.
In their statement, the hapless couple said: “Since the inception of Archewell, we have worked to address the real-time global misinformation crisis. Hundreds of millions of people are affected by the serious harms of rampant mis- and disinformation every day. Last April, our co-founders began expressing concerns to our partners at Spotify about the all too real consequences of COVID-19 misinformation on its platform. We have continued to express our concerns to Spotify to ensure changes to its platform are made to help address this public health crisis. We look to Spotify to meet this moment and are committed to continuing our work together as it does.”
The statement is rather ironic since Meghan and Harry are the Queen and King of Mis- and Disinformation.
After all, Meghan lied on international television with Oprah Winfrey about her and Harry being married by the Archbishop of Canterbury before their wedding. The Archbishop later publicly disputed her recollections of events—and yet the public is supposed to believe that it is Spotify’s Joe Rogan, who brings in 11 million listeners per day, who is the real problem?
No, they were just jumping on the bandwagon as earlier this week some leftist musicians demanded that the streaming platform remove their music or else. Spotify was only too happy to do so, since most people were shocked to realize that Neil Young and some of the other musicians were still alive, and adding a disclaimer is a way for them to address the potential concerns of other heavy hitters who perhaps privately expressed their concerns.
Simultaneously, it also publicly tells Harry and Meghan that their complains should no longer be an issue. If they want to work with Spotify and keep the millions they were promised, they actually have to work and create content.
A podcast is not very hard, and it’s something most people can generally do from home themselves (I’ve done it). That Harry and Meghan can’t seem to do more than one mostly uninteresting episode, which was beaten by whale noises and where they did the bare minimum, is ridiculous.
The situation has gotten so bad that Spotify is hiring producers to force the couple to come up with something, hence Harry and Meghan’s decision to jump in with other looney musicians who think that their ability to write music is better than physician and researcher Dr. Robert W. Malone who created the mRNA vaccination technology.
It’s not a good look, and Harry and Meghan’s popularity continues to plummet day after day, as they brazenly go on their own misinformation campaign while simultaneously trying to censor anyone who disagrees with them.
The statement also shows the couple for who they really are—two talentless hacks who are unable to come up with something as simple as a podcast, so they resort to deflecting blame on someone else in a vain attempt to try and get out of a contract while keeping the money.
It’s shameful, and a sign that their Hollywood days are numbered.
