John Oliver on the Decline of Journalism

John Oliver has some bad news about the state of the industry that gives us our news. He really nailed it in this clip from Last Week Tonight.

Forbes posted: “On Sunday, John Oliver used his platform on HBO’s Last Week Tonight to lament the current state of journalism. He discussed the decline of local- and state-based newspapers and mocked news organizations for replacing in-depth journalism with fluffy click-bait. But Oliver placed the blame squarely on readers like you and me, unaccustomed and reluctant to pay for our news.”
