    what people forget is that John Oliver is primarily an entertainer and light troll of the establishment (but generally that's what us brits do to keep busy really).

    he does a good rant, says sweary words in the right places and, most importantly, has a team of writers and researchers in the wings whose biases we cannot really know.

    He brings plenty to the table in terms of education but never at the expense of the jokes, you only have to watch a show on a subject you're intimately familiar with to catch out the errors in understanding. I like him but you do have to be able to accept that he's not free from bias or error.

    No down vote reasons were selected by any users.

    Guess there wasn't any reason, then. Another wasted down vote.

    I get what this article is trying to criticize, but Oliver isn't a reactionary, he's just a capitalist left-leaning liberal, like all centrists, he has never implied he was anything but. The same goes for Stewart and Colbert, they're both liberals. Reactionary is reserved for the rightwing, that's what it is by definition, a person who is left leaning and capitalist is a liberal. The rest of the article though is right about a lot of things with Stewart and Oliver, they don't really get to the heart of the problem, they get about 90% there but then fail to actually point out the root causes. They blame certain symptoms, certain smaller issues that contribute, but the greater causes remain untouched.
