Steve Lubetkin, managing partner of The Lubetkin Media Companies, appeared on Bill O’Reilly’s No Spin News TV show on Feb. 8 to discuss the controversy surrounding Spotify and its marquee podcast host Joe Rogan.
Lubetkin chatted with O’Reilly for about 15 minutes about the collision of celebrity hosts, demonstrable facts, and how the general lack of expertise and knowledge could be potentially dangerous to followers of influential podcasters like Rogan who allow guests to disseminate false information about health issues like COVID-19.
“It was a real adventure in the lion’s den,” said Lubetkin. “It’s always a challenge to keep your wits about you during a major television appearance, and even more so with a capable and controversial host like O’Reilly.”
