Noticed that Prager University won’t be able to advertise...thats how I discovered them.  why were their ads removed?  why are there no conservative podcasts?

conservative podcast

 

My Question or Issue.

Why did you remove the Prager University advertisements?  Thats how I discovered them?  PU offers insight which is contrary to 99% of those allowed.  They offer a view which is backed by facts unlike sites I’ve listened to for 22 years.  You’ve done a disservice to all....can you say censorship?

I saw the letter sent to PragerU noting their being removed from Spotify advertising.  I am looking for any details on how the "...content of the ads do not comply with our editorial content."  and that "On further review of your website, there are additional compliance concerns..." -Technical Account Manager (Spotify NYC)

Please provide specifics with applied logic.

As a subscriber, I believe I am paying for an answer, or a refund.

Thank you,

Gary Fredricks

I’ve chosen not to pay for the Spotify service, perhaps they’ll hear it loud and clear when paying memberships are reduced.  I pod down during commercials...

I've been a Spotify user for some time now, and a Prager University supporter for several years.  I'm troubled by their recent decision to block their podcast broadcasts.  Differing views and their discussions are a healthy thing for a society, and blocking that content that you don't agree with reeks of censoring.  You can hardly consider the voicing of opinions which have existed for hundreds of years (or indeed much longer) hate speech, no matter how much one disagrees with it.  Especially when these views are based on one's moral convictions.

Spotify should strongly consider their position; I won't support a service which overtly marginalizes an entire segment of society, based on their own world views.

I agree 100%. This is the definition of censorship. I am researching other music alternatives, as Spotify will not be getting my money any longer (almost 5 year sub).

I have always enjoyed Spotify, however like many others, I am disappointed in Spotify’s decision to remove advertisements for PragerU.  Censorship simply because you disagree with a particular viewpoint on any subject violates the right to free speech in an attempt to shut down open dialogue and discussion. This action will not only cost Spotify paid subscribers, but also impact other Spotify advertisers whose message will no longer be heard by listeners switching to other music streaming services.  I urge you to reconsider and not let your policies be driven by any one social or political group.

The ban is ridiculous. You may be free to do what you want with your platform but it's shamefull.
I'm also free to do what I want with my money. If the decision is not reversed by the end of the month I will cancel my family plan.

I created a play list from music from Spotify for when I run..... never signed up to pay for their music....suspecting they would follow along the path of other liberal platforms and either suspend, deny, prohibit anything conservative then bam....they go ahead and do what I suspected.  Thank you for your like....hahaha i look for your decision at the end of the month as we both know they wont yield:).

I am also appalled to know that this is going on. If this is true, I am ending my use of Spotify. Spotify will you please explain yourself specifically and directly as to what rules have been broken? I am a premium member and pay monthly. I do not even get ads. However, I cannot in good conscience pay money to this company that would outright censure someone for just having an opposing view. We can affect and direct the conversation only with our dollars. Please let every Spotify user you can know that this is the practice of Spotify.
