  • 5:14 why does he sound like h20 delirious

  • Please do a piece on NFTs.

  • Lol we was putting sox on phones way before corona that was how u knew that phone belongs to ppl already don't touch

  • The virus.. Just as deadly as the flu. Don't worry, soon you'll be safe at all restaurants, movie theaters, malls, parks, the beach, you know all the public shit we've all been used to in a free society, .. only you're gonna need a identification to prove you've been inoculated with the vaccine to be free in that sense. ..but to vote NO ID NECESSARY.. Not even inoculation papers!!!!

  • Last week tonight should do a follow up on the balloon boy story. The version that john said is wildly misleading and that family got NO justice. At the VERY WORST it was a huge misunderstanding. When looking at all of the context the "it was a hoax" story is hard to swallow

  • \\ BREAKING NEWS // Light for Billions of Un-Preventable CURING by Vaccines? ///// We selected neglected scientific rate on DEATHS RATES of millions INFECTED by Corona due mainly to non-curable power vaccines. \\\\ HOW? //// These rates are, inter alia, available in endless mix of data reported daily to WHO-JHU by thousands of dedicated Medical Doctors, Nurses and Health workers in more than 100 countries. A. Out of this tsunami of daily numbers, we first analyze rate history in LOW (B) vs. HIGH (C) RATED-COUNTRIES. Next we reorder and time-rate-compare the data. The RESULTS AS WE ENTER SPRING: 72 of 82 countries are rate-trending DOWN (marked *) or STAY SAME (marked ") during at least last 2 days [some for 116 days, since Dec. 4, 2020). 10 UP-RATED Countries are marked ^ during last 2 DAYS, EVEN IF TRENDED DOWN BEFORE.

  • I did ten years in prison. It was terrible enough without this virus. Straight John's may wish others would die, but they do this without turly knowing violence, or being willing to do the deed themselves

  • Is it just me or is the audio and video out of sync? It starts to get better 2 minutes into the video but it still looks wonky

  • I LOVE how whenever ya bring up the HORRIBLE abuses that happen in jail and prison, people say that 'they deserve it, it's what they get', blah blah, but that's pretty ignorant. Jail prisoners aren't even for sure guilty yet! Not to mention but no matter the crime, I've NEVER heard a judge say "you are hereby sentenced to being raped/beaten to an inch of death, to have your access to get d bang medication and healthcare cut off'.

  • I know I'm late but holy shit I am ashamed of my county to hear that Santa Barbara thing....

  • People we have no excuse for not releasing immediately would also include people with drug possession charges

  • Only pandemic is spread of fake virus by the media directed by government it’s an outbreak

  • If this virus was real and a real pandemic they would test and treat incoming inmates instead they pretend 80% of prison population that means 80% of human population has the virus thank god it’s all fake made up by government to steal money &power let’s fix the real problem get rid of this corrupt government then fix our economy they destroyed by stealing our money and collapsing our economy

  • Baloon boy wasn't a publicity stunt, it was a huge misunderstanding. If I'm wrong then correct me, until then: Get your facts right!

    • came here for this comment. The idea that it was a hoax starts to get really hard to grasp when looking at the whole story. the "confessions" that people often point to are weak. The father never confessed to it being a hoax and the mother's confession makes very little sense on its face, and was (deliberately or not) a misrepresentation of her weak english.

  • The psychedelic satin inherently develop because temple presently form opposite a obtainable melody. awake, obsolete particle

  • Yes john is a beautiful soul. Thank you Mr. Oliver

  • rewatching old John Olivers and I just have to comment, that guy talking about how the coronavirus was contained in the mail because they’re not leaving-do the EMPLOYEES of the prison also not leave the jail?? what a fucking moron. now we’re at 500K dead. USA is just one Unbelievably Stupid Atrocity after another.

  • I got arrested on a false charge last May, that was later dropped. I was put in a cell with 14 other women (all in there for stupid was reasons- one old lady had a half a jpint in her car). We were so packed we couldnt sleep. And they refused to let me have bail until 5 days later. If I would have not been able to pay a bonds bailsmen, I would have been there for 6 weeks before the judge dropped my charge.

    • this story touches on a lot of what is wrong with our justice system. The war on drugs, the bail system, detaining without charge for extended periods of time. America can be ugly

  • The balloon boy storie has different version from the father, i highly encourage people to learn about their side of the storie. Internet historian has a great video about it with a lot of infuriating details.

  • The tests are bullshit,and all the lies by media are ignorant,does nobody take science?

  • Fuck them. What are they in for? That should be the question. If its minor yes I agree, but if there in there for a serious crime then actions have e consequences.

  • well if it has to hit somebody...

  • Trying to get this message through to anyone who has never done even single day locked up or doesn't know anyone who has is incredibly hard and infuriating. Karma is out there, those who deny folks basic human rights had better keep that in mind.

  • Well for the pedos in prison i know how we can get rid of them. Give them a rope. No chance of the reoffending and never let them out.

  • I honestly love your exposure ability but the puns take most away.

  • Saying it for emphasis: Should never be operated for profit: 1. Healthcare 2. Prisons/Jails 3. Education Corresponds exactly with: 1. Life 2. Liberty 3. Pursuit of happiness

  • Drug addiction is a mental issue.

  • Honestly if I was ever forced to go to prison for any reason, I would just find a way to off myself beforehand. My life would be over anyways so why keep suffering?

  • Please Do A Piece on Michael Jackson Hi, I’m writing to you because Last Week Tonight as opposed to other such shows actually cares about issues rather than chasing the headlines. It has been 11 years since Michael Jackson passed away yet to this day what the common consensus is that he is a taboo subject for many. I recall you guys once did a piece on Public Shaming. Michael Jackson was a genius, an abused child. He was strange. He was one of the few major stars from the 80s who came out of the 80s without a heroine addiction. He in his own way did many, Many strange things, but so do most other superstars. And more than others he actually cared. About children, about the earth. About the issues we are discussing to this day. While Icons like Freddy Mercury, Elvis Pressley, Prince, Beetles and many more are known for their good works, Michael is known for the something which he has repeatedly been acquitted for. It’s the truth that anyone looking for will find instantly but due to the “where there is smoke there is a fire” narrative, even 11 years after his death, the new media treats him like a criminal. All his trial pages are open for the public to read. He WAS weird. Making a ranch called neverland, hanging out with children. Trusting people he shouldn’t. But I urge you please cover him, hear beyond the noise like you guys often do. The most successful African American Artist of all time was a humble man child, who respected women, loved children and cared about our environment. He was not a heroine junkie, a private man who did not share his disease even all the way back in 1993 even though he was accused of wanting to become a “White Man”. He was eccentric. Hanging out with animals and caring about them. theobjectivestandard.com/2020/02/justice-for-michael-jackson/ This article covers multiple sources, some of which I had read previously. Michael Jackson was a multi talented millionaire pop star, who was not an alcoholic, was a caring father, a filial son, Treated women with respect, cared about the planet and it’s beings. The press that constantly kept DASHING him, had found a way to subvert their guilt. All those years of calling him a “Jacko”, “monkey” and many more hurtful things was justified if he was a paedophile. They NEEDED him to be guilty. Such a man cannot exist in Hollywood. Such public shaming had allowed and to this day allows Michael to be a victim to all this slander. Please do a piece, if not one that exonerates him then one that once and for all cements the fact the Michael Jackson, the greatest pop star, the first African American Idol was a paedophile. Not through unknown sources or flimsy headlines but through concrete proof. A news echoing in a closed chamber will not reach anyone, most fans who what to know the truth know it, other people will read the headlines but not the explanations. It’s about time the general public knows. Please do a piece on Michael, the blatant mistreatment by the media, The systematic racism he faced during his trials. Please don’t let the first African American Singer be remembered for the things he did not do, He was weird, weird enough to annoy Freddy Mercury with Bubbles feedbacks, weird enough to let kids crack raw eggs over Michael Jackson, Weird enough to play water balloons with children. But he was not a paedophile and the world needs to acknowledge that. He was in no way a “Perfect Human” but he tried his best to live right and we should not punish him for doing that. On this year please exonerate this Black man, the Justice System has done it two decades ago, it’s about time everyone else does. Please do a piece on Michael Jackson. #spreadtheawareness #justiceformichael #hedeservedbetter

  • The whole thing about destruction of property to get people to listen is way too real, especially after the capital

  • Donate to BLACK LIVES MATTER or The ACLU... I have many times and my contributions have helped bail out 5 innocent black prisoners.. free black people, donate to BLACK LIVES MATTER and the ACLU!!!

  • yeah people! let's save the gangbangers and killers! c'mon!

    • you realize that rapists and killers aren't the only ones in prisons, right?

  • don't forget that prisons are oftentimes owned by private contractors who get paid by the government to maintain a certain amount of inmates. it's in a Prison's best interest to make you look bad so they can keep you in longer.

  • Mmmm 2009🥰

  • Maybe don't commit crimes?

  • But we're not all I. This together. Chances are that you might know someone that died due to lack of medical assistance or supplies, maybe someone who was forced to continue a low pay work on frontlines serving shitty burgers at a fast food restaurants, while we have thousands of millionaires partying over the world with medical rooms fully stocked and staffed on their private jets. People died from being denied access to those supplies. People died because someone wasn't able to afford to use proper PPE while business hoarded supplies to hike up the price. We're not in this together, private property is clearly against public interest!

  • Balloon Boy happened in 2009 You know what came out in 2009? “Up”

  • im not entirely certain that baloon boy was fake

    • Exactly

    • lvcd.info/watch/tbihhamebbWppI0/video.html

  • Here's a fact from a personal experience. No hearsay, no heard it from a friend, I saw this downhill spiral in person. Tigger warning, this involves drug use, and abuse. If you're sensitive to this type of thing, I'm giving you fair warning now. My adopted sister's bio father was in jail, she was my best friend, and we originally had only a power of attorney because it was thr assumption she would return to her dad once his jail time was over. Now, her dad was by no means a good man. He abused all his ex's, mentally and psychologically abused my sister, and was a heavy drug user. For once he didn't actually commit the crime, he was framed, I won't go into it because thats a whole different story, but his sentence was lowered, and he spent the rest of it at a halfway house. We would visit him, play games, take pictures, and for once, he looked amazing. He had muscle, his face was filled out, his hair wasn't gray, and had grown back. He looked better. He had a great plan for what he was going to do when he got out, and it all was promising, until it wasn't. No place would hire him, no apartment would lease him, he couldn't drive, didn't have money, and had no where to go. So he did the only thing he could do, go back to the people who were a bad influence on him. He spiraled fast, drugs, got back with an ex, stealing, and ended up right back in prison. For a lot longer, and an offense that was 100% his fault. Again, a whole different can of worms to open with that story. It was tragic, and it made me see how we treat past criminals in a whole new way. He wasn't a good person, by any stretch, but to see him try to be only for him to be set up for failure. It broke my heart, and it broke my sisters heart because she was his biggest advocate, always had been, no matter how many times he broke her heart. That was the last straw for her honestly. These videos always hit me harder because I've seen first hand how that system works, and how it treats criminals. You can go on, and on saying "if they didn't commit the crime", but most the time. The system sets them up for complete failure.

  • Ironically, I watched news coverage of balloon boy while my family was handling my dad’s trial

  • Johnny boy! Still lookin for a job let me help you make an episode!

  • "no cruel and unusual punishment"

  • The use of solitary confinement is horrifying enough normally, but putting someone there for no actual reason - especially if they’re positive for a virus that’s goddamn killing people - makes me want to vomit, and do it over everyone responsible. These are human fucking beings, not numbers, not cash cows. I’ve been having a hard time trying to find out how to donate books to local jails - now I see why! Even so, solitary would be even a hair’s width easier to deal with if you had a distraction like that.

  • Balloon boy's parents might be innocent - lvcd.info/watch/tbihhamebbWppI0/video.html

  • Really missed a joke opportunity with the whole soap in prisons theme

  • The interesting cow frustratingly pretend because scallion descriptively belong amidst a cheap mustard. quixotic, cute adult

  • N it doubled in a day they cut off there phone access refused testing for months prior to the whole facility was contracted it the facility's name was community transitional serves Russel in Louisville Kentucky also a rehabilitation program or know as a substance abuse program if u get the opportunity u should look at it the actual facility owner Barbara strong been charged for DUI recently n the sap facilitator Kenneth somrthing has been brought up in federal court on charges they he watched people over dose n all Mr john look at it be a good piece

  • My grandson was locked up in a halfway house n watched the whole population of 300 people

  • That Criminal Justice Reform Activist talking about the death cruise ship might be the *coolest* person I've seen on the internet in a long while. Not just his kickarse title but his absolutely stellar dress sense too. Kudos to you, Mr Eric Russell.

  • Balloon Boy wasn't a hoax: Justice for Richard

  • Balloon boy wasn't really a hoax tho, it's complicated. Go check @internethistorian 's video on it.

  • please upload high resolution picture of stay up late by brian swords, i'm want to use it as wallpaper for my computer, please please please. I love that painting.

  • When Donald Trump catches the virus and dies, John Oliver: time to be a hypocrite Note: JK

  • I knew it would be fucken Shkreli

  • Where is all the answers to these problems?

  • Eh...

  • Thank you for talking about this issue!!!

  • 200,000 OUT 200,000 IN ! Have to keep it full ! Non violent ! They let out pedophiles !!!! Those are the one u need to keep in !

  • @governor cuomo

  • Fav thing

  • Excellent report, and I applaud that inmates stand. If he has to die from the virus at least it's with purpose.

  • Covid19 is the blacklight on the hotel sheets of our broken country.

  • Not wanting that evil pharma guy to die a painful death is wayyyyy too goody-goody of you, John

  • Super late for this, but there is strong evidence to suggest that the Balloon Boy event was not a hoax and the confession was only given from lots of pressure from both the community and police harassing the family.

  • The level of compassion that John Oliver is showing in this vid is what I wish the whole world had... that just because someone did something wrong doesn't mean they deserve death.

  • Ballon boys parents are innocent

  • When I told my grandma the golden state killer was officially sentenced she said because of covid he would be released. She wanted a serial killer released instead of people with non violent drug charges released

  • Balloon Boy was not a hoax, check your facts

  • That.... That impersonation of you.... Kinda... Sounded like Jamie Oliver.... O.o. Jamie and John.... Oliver.....

  • I can't go thru all I've not seen to see if you've covered it. Prisons in Norway. Please take Lawrence Lawton with you!!! 😌

  • The UN global forecast of death statistics for 2020 has been reduced by almost a million people www.wojcik.at/en/Pandemie.php

  • Adam Driver! Adam Driver!!! ADAM DRIVER!!! ADAM DRIVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • dont do the crime if you dont wanna do the time

    • This isn't doing the time this is sentencing ppl to death with low level charges

    • This has nothing to do with crime or time. This has everything to do with the inability of our government to sufficiently protect people it has put under its ward. It takes an extreme lack of humanity to not even pity people whose lives are at risk just because they did something illegal.

  • Thank you for bringing up these issues John

  • I don't care.. you're a prisoner for a reason....

    • This is sentencing ppl w low level crimes to death. What if someone who had some meth on them once was given the electric chair

    • Prisoners are meant to be either rehabilitated people punished Whichever situation they find themselves in, neither should put their lives in danger, and not giving a shit about their plight means that you deny them their basic humanity, regardless of what they've done

  • Same deal in homeless shelters. Every soap dispenser dry as a bone, you get literally one drop of detergent for laundry a week. Only funding that shelters get are for food. You could be in a violent filthy unregulated shelter, but eating delicious/healthy hot breakfasts & dinners, + for lunch Trader Joe's drops off snacks and their 10 dollar pre made salads on their "export date" (they were fresh and quality) Look out for homeless shelter advocates and directors who are extremely obese women. All they do jobwise is secure more food donations or volunteer chefs. They eat like absolute kings alongside the homeless, who can't wash or clean or avoid catching sh It like MERSA. Fat homeless shelter directors refuse to make any quality changes not related to eating. It's impossible to starve in America if you don't have dignity or pride to protect. But "feed the homeless really wel in perpetuity" persists over "rehab and rehome the homeless". Homeless are just a bargaining chip for fat people 'advocating' for there to always be really high quality, and get praised endlessly for doing so. Always taking a plate of the typically expensive meals every day they "work" at an otherwise filthy and irreputable shelter

  • I would like to agree with this...... But then I watch Internet Historian's video showing criminals getting released..... And lasting only 30 mins outside before getting arrested again......

  • it is hard to feel sorry for rapist murders and pedophiles. don't do crime

    • @Lola P good so when u are knocking up one of your baby momas and having a nother kid that u aren't supporting and adding to the 8 billion or so humans. Mother nature or a higher power or God has had enough. Floods famine plages earthquakes and it's not enough . the population of the world keeps going up . Having six kids when u can't afford to take care of 1 . If u do the crime u bo the time but now a days it costs to much money to keep people in jail so less time for more crimes . One of showes I like the perge. Give me a hunting licence And I and others will thin out the heard . U say I discuss u but u are hurting the world bringing down iq and promoting a lazy anti work ethick. What u can't under stand is u work pay bills work harder and get ahead . U may fall on your face a few times u pick your self up and go back to work. There is no free lunch unless it is someone else's and that is wrong . Taking money out of school lunch programs and programs to help the working poor and putting it in to prisons and drug rehabilitation programs is sick like u .

    • @Paul Baskerville You disgust me thinking of human lives like that. Stfu

    • @Lola P very few people that take hard drugs don't effect family and friends or rune there lives . One of my next door neighbor kids od when driving killing him and his girlfriend. In most cases it is not a second chance 4 or 5 or 9 . China and other countries including the US and Russia use drugs as a weapon to destabilize other countries . From China in the mail one neighbor bought and sold enouf to buy a house in a beter neighborhood . In 2 years to get his new house it cost 9 lives . U are right there are 1 out òf 100 that only hurt them selves .the cost to society and the damage that drugs do is to high .

    • @Paul Baskerville THEY DIDNT KILL ANYONE! THEY TOOK SOME DRUGS ONCE AND GOT ADDICTED AND NEED HELP AND DESERVE A 2ND CHANCE

    • @Lola P how meny mistakes do these so called humans get . how many deaths and family members that they hurt till the bleeding hart's call them animals and put them to sleep.

  • Please help in cold spring tx San jacinto jail

  • I would re look into the hoax with balloon boy, with more and more time it almost seems like an accident. Just saying.

  • The man held in solitary confinement for posting a video about ill prisoners, and refusing to take it back... what a fucking hero.

  • The fact that people are surprised that American jails are privatized is as alarming as people not knowing that companies pay political figures to play favoritism with laws and regulations on their behalf regardless of party lines. To say fuck this president seems to be a little underwhelming these days to because he made the swamp that existed cooler and bigger than the slogan he branded. It's like saying I'm tired of these racoons going through my trash and buying racoons to guard the garbage knowing they going to trash it anyway.

  • I honestly can't wait until things get more violent

  • I would purposefully catch it so I could infect the guards

  • So serious that he made a dig at business daddy without calling it business daddy.

  • Damn that intro was a bit too relatable.

  • balloon boy wasnt a hoax

  • "2009 really was a simpler time." does this mean that you would be fine with a community movie.

  • This country has been broken,set on fire and is radioactive.

  • so you dont get quote health care so u riot I'd argue let's take care of the people who matter first the law abiding citizens before we help the murders an drug dealers

    • @Paul m that's slightly above the conditions of a concentration camp, so either we accept that prisoners should be given basic hygienic supplies, or we accept that we share our incarceration system with Hitler

    • @BadassPlaya2517 3 meals a day an a safe place from other prisoners anything more an they are being incentivized to sell drugs an get locked up. I dont want my tax dollars going to luxury items.

    • Prisoners are wards of the government, meaning it's the government's responsibility to care for them. If anything, the government has an even greater responsibility towards prisoners than non-prisoners, because non-prisoners can take care of themselves significantly more

  • Balloon boy wasn't a hoax! Watch Internet Historian's viden

  • Trumpvirus

  • america is a first world country that wants to be a third world one at heart

  • Just saying

  • Yeah I watch John during my lunch break it's nice to have some sanity in a crazy world

  • It breaks my heart and scars my soul! Am crying in my patrol car we as a people have to figure out how to fix this situation for posterity

  • Actually balloon boy has a deeper story

  • It's just showes how litle aboiute American prisoners that facking 1st world country for you
