John Oliver on surveillance, with Edward Snowden

06 Apr

While I’m working on a detailed essay about online identity, I’ll move up my usual Wednesday video post. John Oliver did a long segment on government surveillance on his HBO show last night. There are some slow bits, but stick with it, and the Snowden guest segment is very good.

It’s sad that government surveillance has to be simplified down to the issue of “dick pics” to matter to the people on the street that Oliver’s team interviewed.  Sad, but not surprising.
