But at least he will bring left wing guests on, which is rare because leftwingers never want to talk outside of an echo chamber. I think Rubin does try to get left wing guests, they are just harder to get on. Talking with the left is nearly impossible and the left has a culture of disowning anyone who talks to a conservative.Rubin is a hack with absolutely no editorial consistency whatsoever. He'll invite outright cranks on his show and nod in agreement as they spout the most uninformed right-wing propaganda imaginable, but as soon as Marianne Williamson went on his show and suggested that America should raise it's minimum wage, suddenly, he changed his tune and started frantically offering objections left and right.
It's pretty clear that Dave knows who his target audience is, and it's perhaps even clearer that he cares far more about pandering to that than he does about any notion of truth or journalistic integrity. I doubt the man has a single, solitary principle worth speaking of.
This might have been true once upon a time, but it's not anymore. Tons of lefties have now asked to go on Dave's show, and he'll ignore them unless they're a lefty who'll bash SJWs (Sam Harris, Bret Weinstein) or who happen to be popular with the anti-SJW crowd (Tulsi Gabbard, Andrew Yang) or if he thinks they'll make an easy target for him to counter (Marianne Williamson - lol, backfired spectacularly).But at least he will bring left wing guests on, which is rare because leftwingers never want to talk outside of an echo chamber.

I agree, but it's really gone to his head, to the point where he seriously thinks he is some deep political thinker.People call guys like Rubin hacks, etc, but in reality they're just average dudes given a platform. The average person is kind of an idiot.
I don't rate Pakman much as a political commentator, but he's a damn good interviewer, or at least he used to be, I haven't watched him recently. Interestingly, Dave had Pakman on his show a few years ago to shit on Reza Aslan, but then he went on Pakman's show, got blown the fuck out by some mildly adversarial questions, and for some reason he's never been on Pakman's show since then and Pakman's never been invited back.Dave's sort of a quasi-cow but he's way better than someone like David Pakman who regularly lies about shit, takes self-serving hypocriticial positions on things, and smears people.
The Rubin Report is the epitome of an echo chamber. For all Dave's haughty pretensions about the importance of exchanging ideas, he only ever arranges interviews with conservatives these days. I don't believe for one moment that this is an accident, or that left-wing people are "avoiding" him. It's obvious from the framing of his interviews that this is a deliberate editorial decision on his part, and that he's realized (consciously or not) that appealing to an audience of credulous conservatives is now his bread and butter.But at least he will bring left wing guests on, which is rare because leftwingers never want to talk outside of an echo chamber.

Joe Rogan is a lot more switched on than Dave. Just watch him effortlessly pick apart Dave's ridiculous opinions about building codes:Dave's not a toxic guy like some of the others in this sphere (Milo is the big one, also people like Sargon), I think he's more like a Joe Rogan, too high to really be able to accurately assess and critically examine what they're being told.
That Sesame Street segment sounds pretty cringe from what I’ve heard, but it’s not the first time they’ve done something like this and calling it child abuse is silly. If they were teaching children about conservative values or some shit, he’d be cheering them on same as any other Boomercon idiot.
Apologies for the late response, butApparently I am getting recommended videos from Secular Talk and Progressive Voice (I haven't been a regular watcher in months) that Dave Rubin is now a conservative, got rejected by Joe Rogan and loves religion. Anyone know what is going on with Dave as I haven't watched his stuff in months also.
Mark Dice seems more of a working class type who wants results rather than sit back and smell his farts. Him and Cernovich are way way better than all those speakers. And Ben Shapiro is apparently moving to Nashville, Tennessee as well.Apologies for the late response, but

Anyway, I didn't just necro the thread to post that. Dave's been making a fool of himself again recently.
Firstly, he locked himself out of his iPhone while trying to pull up a tweet. He did this while saying pundits always get things wrong. Again, the Brianna Wu comparison I made in the OP is becoming more apt every day:
He's also angry that Joe Rogan hasn't invited him back on his show (even though he dodges people wanting to go on his show like it's an Olympic sport) and suggests that noted far leftist Joe Rogan moving to Texas will turn the state blue.
Dave was also a featured speaker at CancelCon:

Wow, this sure looks thrilling and not cringey at all.
The event went ahead earlier this week. I haven't watched it because I know it will just be the same tired points repeated ad nauseam like always, but what did interest me is that the comments section and dislike bar were attacked by the only thing boomercons hate more than SJWs.

Fellow lolcow Mark Dice also showed up to give his two cents:

When Mark Dice is sounding sensible, you done fucked up.
I hadn't. That's Bibleman-tier embarrassing. I had to go and check the video of the event to make sure it was real and not a parody someone made.Cancelcon was a cringey mistake. Did you see the intro they made for the whole shebang?
These people are forever stuck in a neverending loop of 2014/5 with these very original jokes.Cancelcon was a cringey mistake. Did you see the intro they made for the whole shebang?
