John Oliver’s ‘Last Week Tonight’ : The New Yorker

In its first two episodes, John Oliver’s news-satire show, “Last Week Tonight,” which airs on Sunday nights, on HBO, devoted long segments to the ongoing Indian elections and to the status of the death penalty in the United States. In each case, Oliver, grinning, but with serious, almost desperate purpose, argued that these were subjects that Americans, either out of ignorance or owing to an aversion to facing hard truths, were talking and thinking much too little about. Of the Indian election, in which more than eight hundred million people are eligible to vote, but which has received scant U.S. cable-news coverage, he said, “If this story isn’t worth covering, then nothing is worth covering.” Regarding the death penalty—which was in the news last week, after a botched lethal injection in Oklahoma—Oliver reached for simile: “The death penalty is like the McRib. When you can’t have it, it’s so tantalizing. But when they bring it back, you think, This is ethically wrong.”
