Investor and software engineer Marc Andreesen told podcaster Joe Rogan recently that Twitter is akin to a “cult.” The pair were chatting about the platform and its members desiring to develop new ethical and moral systems. 

Andreesen said thinking of Twitter users as cult followers is an easy comparison. 

“Because humans, we want to be members of groups,” Andreessen stated. “We want to reform into new cults. We want to reform religions. We want to develop new ethical and moral systems and hold each other to them,” he said. 

Andreesen stated that the hallmark of any religion, “is some crazy, some belief that strikes outsiders as completely crazy.” 

“What’s the role of that crazy belief? The role is that by professing your belief in the crazy thing, you basically certify that you’re a member of the group.” 

According to The Daily Wire, Rogan referred to the social media platform as “woke Twitter.” 

“They exhibit all the same religious behaviors,” he added. “They have ex-communication. They have sin. They have redemption or lack thereof. They have original sin, privilege.”

Vice World News is heading to the digital streaming world. The company announced that it is launching a news channel and a news show on Twitch’s streaming platform.

The news show debuts on Aug. 23 via Twitch and airs live on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. ET. 

Dexter Thomas and Samir Ferdowsi will co-host the program with Lianne Turner, VP of global video for Vice News, serving as the executive producer.

“Our audience is young, plugged-in, and doesn’t always access news in a traditional way, so it’s a natural fit for us to take our global reporting to Twitch,” Vice World News’ senior vice president of global news and global editor-in-chief Katie Drummond said. 

“We’ve had success on Twitch with other VICE brands, including Motherboard and Waypoint, and have seen the appetite for our content when it’s carried on other Twitch channels. This is yet another way that VICE is meeting our audience wherever they are.”

The Twitch show also includes a behind-the-scenes segment where hosts go into the Vice archives and talk to producers and correspondents regarding some of Vice’s most classic works.

InfoWars’ Alex Jones is switching his allegiance ahead of the 2024 President Election. Jones has been a staunched supporter of former President Donald Trump, even having him on his show; however, that’s changing. 

Rather than stick with Trump for a possible third election. Jones is hitching his wagon to current Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as many candidates will be throwing their hats for 2024. 

“I thought that we had to keep him in office because of the nightmare scenario if Hillary or Biden got in,” Jones said, per Mediaite. “With that said, I am supporting DeSantis.”

“DeSantis has just gone from being awesome to being unbelievably good. And I don’t just watch a man’s actions, as Christ said. Judge a tree by its fruits. I can also look in his eyes on HD video, and I see the real sincerity.”

Furthermore, Jones stated that DeSantis is what Trump should be, which is why the change is occurring. 

“This is what Trump should be like,” Jones added. “And I’ve been hammering this point, and he’s doing it now. And we have someone that is better than Trump. Way better than Trump.”
