Magazine Mogul Says Big Brother ‘Regulate the Internet’, Joe Rogan Set The Record Straight
Would you trust the government to regulate what you could and could not see on the internet? I think for most Americans the answer is a hard not but to for Jann Wenner. The 76-year-old magazine magnate who co-founded Rolling Stone and owned Men’s Journal thinks the same clowns who are in charge of regulating our medications and food safety, should control what we see and say online.
“Do you want the government to regulate the internet?” Rogan directly asks Wenner.
“Absolutely,” Wenner responds.
Rogan, who himself has been the target of censorship attacks, doesn’t immediately say he disagrees. Instead, he first asks Wenner another question—and it was a good one.
"You trust the people who got us into the Iraq War on false pretenses to regulate the internet?" Rogan asked Wenner.
Wenner struggles to answer, and after some cross-talk, he responds with his own question: “Who else is going to regulate it?”
Rogan, unlike Wenner, offers a clear response:
“If they’re gonna be in power and they’re regulating the internet, they’re gonna regulate the internet in a way that suits their best interest. The same way they do with the banking industry, the same way they do with the environment, the same way they do with energy, the same way they do with everything.”
Wenner is still not convinced. He says the internet must be regulated.
“[And] there’s no way to do that except through the government,” Wenner says. “There’s no way that you can do that except through the government… Human nature’s not gonna change.”
Rogan answers that the government is not going to change either. Wenner disagrees.
“The government is capable of change,” Wenner says.

Is this guy for real? Even my most liberal of acquaintances wouldn't want big brother editing the internet. Is he out of his head? Let me know what you think in the comments below. This just seems and sounds dangerous as hell to me.
