Though hilarious as usual, this week’s “This Week Tonight” was painful to watch, due in part to the disjunction between Oliver’s style of delivering big truth via comedy and Snowden’s intense seriousness. (For the full impact, watch the whole thing. The Snowden part starts about half-way through.)
Would that the rest of us were as concerned as Snowden (and Oliver) about surveillance and freedom. Oliver shows him that the only thing the American people seem care about is whether or not the NSA can see their dicks.
