Daily Wire+ is a new streaming service from the conservative news outlet. It’s not surprising that Peterson is joining them. He is friendly with Ben Shapiro and others over there.

Jordan Peterson joins Daily Wire+

The Daily Wire recently announced it is hiring clinical psychologist and chancellor of Ralston College Georgia, Jordan B. Peterson, to its new streaming platform, DailyWire+.

Aiming to compete with Disney and Netflix, the Daily Wire will invest $100 million over the next three years to create new content, including Peterson’s podcast, Dragons, Monsters, and Men, a four-part series about men, masculinity, and the pursuit of greatness.

Before joining the Daily Wire and Ralston, Peterson served as a  psychology professor at the University of Toronto (U of T). In protest, he resigned his tenure position at the university in January, citing that U of T does not favor ideological diversity.

In his resignation letter, Peterson wrote that Toronto’s “Diversity, Inclusivity, and Equity mandates” or “D-I-E” are ruining the university’s commitment to promoting an environment that promotes discussion, learning, and diversity.

His move to Daily Wire was motivated by his and the company’s “shared values,” Peterson said to the outlet. “Partnering with a company that shares my own values for excellence and entrepreneurial vision is the natural next step for me. And, it’s time for a new adventure.”

Good news for Peterson, of course, and terrific cancellation insurance for his ideas.

But I worry about DailyWire’s focus. They are a right-wing political organization dedicated to becoming a film production company. And in hoping to supplant Hollywood, they are becoming Hollywood. (And a razor company. And a couple other things.)

As a result, their daily newsletter, which used to be a trenchant source of political commentary, is now at least 30% People Magazine fluff. This week, the unknown, unremarkable husband of some obscure One Tree Hill actress died, and they were all over it. Who cares? If the actress or the guy had been a conservative hero, I’d give them the benefit of the doubt… but there was no connection even anything like that.
