Last Week Tonight (season 3)

{5/5} “And this is true…”

Last Week Tonight season 3, aired in 2016

John Oliver continues his amazing weekly review of the news and astonishing in-depth discussion of important topics. Topics such as:

  • Donald Trump (multiple times)
  • voter ID laws
  • abortion
  • debt buying industry
  • decline of newspapers
  • school segregation
  • multi-level marketing
  • police accountability and reform
  • opioid abuse
  • Guantanamo Bay detention camp

Oliver doesn’t just tell you about these things. He does something about them, and encourages you to do something about them. He bought $15 million of medical debt for $60 000 and forgave it. In his last show of the year he pointed out a bunch of non-profit organizations that could use your money.

I previously reviewed season 2.
