Magyarul: John Oliver-show az elmúlt hét híreiről
Alkotó: John Oliver
John Oliver (Presenter),
In the first show from his makeshift home studio, John covers the horrible way COVID-19 pandemic is going and how Trump is mishandling it, how TV hosts are practicing social distancing, and how profoundly gleeful 90s erotic rat art can be.
This week John talks about the news media especially about a particular network. One America News network is not a well known neither a respected network but it is getting great reviews from the President of the United States. And they are getting this by only way it is possible and that is praising Trump, supporting his fact less hunch based ideas and promoting misinformation. John explains the dire effects of President's boosting of a heavily biased network just because the President is getting some praise.
John looks at the impact to the Unemployed and the Essential Workers who are taking disproportionate risks and may not be getting the protection, sick leave or medical coverage needed.
John also updates on his search for the elusive auctioned painting: WE DID IT!
John discusses the United States Postal Service which is in dire need of economic assistance from the government. He examines some of the essential services of the USPS and why it is facing such financial trouble due to a 2006 law requiring it to pre-pay health care benefits on a fifty year schedule while at the same time putting price caps on services and products.
Facial recognition is no longer an issue of a thriller movie. It has become a part of our life. John Oliver talks about various aspects and global practice of facial recognition technology. He explains how dangerous it could be by addressing the questionable activities of facial recognition company Clearview AI.
John talks about US prisons and jails. These confined spaces have frightening number of COVID-19 infections. And there has been insufficient initiatives to address the matter. Consequently, in some cases inmates are taking matters in their own hand to raise concern about situation behind bars.
