The streaming service Spotify has promised to take action to combat COVID-19 misinformation. This comes amid a public backlash about controversial content on the platform.
The dispute has seen artists Neil Young and Joni Mitchell remove their music from the platform. The UK’s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, who’ve signed deals with Spotify, have also expressed concern over vaccine misinformation. The company has now said it will add advisory warnings to podcasts that discuss COVID-19.
The US podcaster Joe Rogan sparked the controversy after he interviewed a prominent vaccine sceptic on his show – listened to by some 11 million people.
