John Oliver’s Blistering Takedown Of Donald Trump Is Absolutely Amazing (Video)

John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight is a show that typically steers away from the mainstream news. Instead, the show tends to focus on stories that, while often very important, aren’t typically given a great deal of attention by the mainstream media. That all changed Sunday night when he dedicated his main segment to absolutely tearing into one Donald J. […]

John Oliver Has The Conversation That Republicans Are Too Cowardly To Have (Video)

It’s become the new go-to line for Republicans whenever some sort of tragedy involving guns takes place: blame mental illness. Often before we even know any actual details about the shooter, Republicans are already plastered on every major news outlet proclaiming their support for our Second Amendment and blaming all gun violence on the mentally […]

55 Years For Pot: John Oliver Exposes The Horrors Of Sentencing Guidelines (Video)

Over the last few years I’ve become a fairly staunch advocate for a complete overhaul of our criminal justice system. In particular, the way we treat drug and other non-violent offenses. While I’m not saying those who distribute, sell or traffic drugs shouldn’t face punishment, I just think it’s absurd how we’re literally ruining lives […]

John Oliver Offers His Perfect Take On How We Should Repurpose The Confederate Flag (Video)

If you ask me, John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight is one of the best weekly shows on television right now.

John Oliver Bashes Mainstream Media for Lazy 2016 Coverage: ‘It’s a Complete Waste of Breath’

While he was a relatively well-known correspondent on Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show, it wasn’t until John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight debuted last year that he truly became a star. His show quickly carved out its own niche as one that covered many of the stories largely ignored by the mainstream media. As a host, Oliver often said […]

John Oliver Delivers One of His Best Segments Yet – And Nobody Seems to Care (Video)

I’ve watched every episode of John Oliver’s new HBO show Last Week Tonight since it debuted a few months ago. Besides the quality of the information presented on the show, I think what’s drawn me in the most is that Oliver seems to go out of his way to cover stories people need to care more about. […]

The 5 Liberal vs. Conservative Debates I Would Love to See Happen

Anyone who follows politics is often inundated with a constant stream of bad or negative news. And at times it can get to people. So every once in a while I like to take a step back from all the seriousness and negativity and write a more lighthearted article that mixes in a little fun, […]

John Oliver Hammered Dr. Oz’s Unethical Pushing of Supplements, Inspiring Debate We Need to Have

Even though his show is fairly new, John Oliver is making quite the name for himself every Sunday night.  The HBO show Last Week Tonight has become one of my go-to shows to watch every week. That was especially the case last week when Oliver spent over half his show addressing how poorly regulated our supplement industry […]

John Oliver Brilliantly Hammers Climate Change Skeptics: “You Don’t Need People’s Opinions on a Fact” (Video)

I’ll be honest, I’ve yet to catch John Oliver’s new show on HBO called Last Week Tonight.  In fact, this video was the first clip I’ve actually seen of the show, but I will say it’s one of the best segments on this type of show I’ve ever seen.  It was short, to the point […]
