on hypocrisy

Thousands of leftists hang on every sketch John Oliver produces, waiting to repost a clip of whatever burn he’s put on his target of the week, celebrating the blow they can strike for righteous anger and promoting goodness by taking down rich, powerful oppressors. Advertisers pay his network a lot of money, which enables his network to pay him a lot of money, which he is using in exactly the way his targets do, for exactly the same purposes. I wonder if it bothers him late at night.
