Our main characters on Twitter Monday were Joe Rogan and The Washington Post.
HAVING A GOOD ONE
ROGAN: The uber-popular podcaster made TIME’s 100 Most Influential People list, outraging liberal commentators who refuse to accept that his ideas are completely mainstream.
TIME has produced its annual 100 Most Influential People issue. I have roughly a million reasons to question the validation of Joe Rogan, and who in hell Senator Sinema influences is far beyond me.https://t.co/KM4Y6YCsh1

HAVING A BAD ONE
THE POST: The newspaper, whose staffers seek to protect the “vulnerable” government from allegedly dangerous dis- and mis-informers like Rogan, was widely mocked for once again getting basic facts wrong.
