Last Week Tonight has a penchant for taking on scams and corrupt institutions, and John Oliver’s latest episode trashes the worst people in the world of cars: shady auto lenders who trap poor, desperate and often unwitting buyers in insane levels of debt.
Way back in the 1980s, Ted Turner had CNN make a video that was only to be played at the end of the world. It was a bit melancholy, to put it lightly. A bit boring, and not exactly the sendoff we might want. So leave it to John Oliver, Last Week Tonight, and Martin Sheen to give us a much, much better one.
