    As someone who works at a tv station own by Deathstar. This not only made me laugh but also annoyed on how ridiculous we show ads yet Nexstar can't pay me & my coworkers in production a living income. Hell at the beginning of the lockdowns last year, the offices where be able to stay home & get paid, while me & everyone in production wouldn't be paid if we decided to stay home. 2 of my coworkers had covid (A few feet away from me) & weren't able to come back til a month later. Nexstar doesn't give a damn about it's employees & their lives.

    Every tv programme that simply reads government, police, or other authorities' press releases uncritically are basically doing the same much of the time. The motive may be other than financial, but it is still less than journalism. The real issue here is why people trust the idiot box in the room.

    Sponsored content like this show. Jhon Oliver is not a balanced journalist. Initially I became a fan of him showing the real issues with more creative and funny way as a critic to trump. But Biden has commit the worst blunder in Afghanistan and he has nothing to criticize about it. It is a hell in Afghanistan now. See Google for more info.
