Here I was thinking Jon would point out the problem of tech companies platforms deciding what is true and what is not.

I just don’t see the threat of miss information as nearly as big an issue as the threat of information censorship.

This dislikes are because people get salty when you point out that they don't have all the answers.

Both Facebook and HRburn have integrated spell-check features, and in both cases they are barely competent with actual English. I've seen literally dozens of examples on both platforms of words that are spelled exactly the right way, but their check flags them regardless. So the fact that both platforms are hilariously incompetent with non-English languages is hardly surprising, because they aren't even entirely competent with just English.....

It actually concerns me more that the excellent writers let this master-app, forged with the potential to direct information sources, which rose to prominence after major sources, though problematic, were banned, let this pass without a joke than the situation itself. It feels so normal?

I really don't get the criticism of WhatsApp and other messaging apps. These essentially fulfill the same role as word of mouth or email, only they do it more efficiently. I find it incredibly worrisome that John Oliver would insinuate the dystopian proposition that they should start monitoring people's private messages and fact check or censor them. And if that's not what he's suggesting, then what on earth is he suggesting?

Another solution would be to force social media and streaming platforms to provide short news videos in collaboration with reputable sources (in multiple languages) alongside their regular content, that way when someone logs in, they are automatically offered reputable news before less desirable sources. Kind of like newsreels for the modern world.

Ahhhh, so the information age has evolved into the misinformation age. Makes sense!

13:33 OR optionally: no matter what bull***t you write, you can also instead of a religious quote/religious text, just place a completely random quote under it, just make sure it has something like this as the end of it "~albert einstein" "~mark twain" "~george orwell" [or the name of some other famous guy/writer or genius, you don't even have to make sure the quote is correct as noone will check it anyway]

*John Oliver:* All it takes is a few superficial labels and style choices to convince people that something with no real substance is actually meaningful and good. Or as it's known in America, the Marvel Cinematic Universe. *Denis Villeneuve and Martin Scorsese:* I see this as an absolute win!

My parents are both victims here, and they actually speak and read english. My step-dad used to be liberal in his opinions, now he says stuff like, "Most black people vote democrat because they are addicted to welfare." and whenever I talk about native americans he keeps saying, "It's not like everything was hunky dorey before the europeans came, there was war too!" and all it is is using technicalities like saying "All lives matter" in response to "black lives matter" to dilute the original message. He fkin reads Red pill living, and listens to Dave Rubin and other shit its all very concerning and annoying. He sends me shit so I can "fact check" for him and godamn, even when I do he's like ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh all scientists are corrupt and big pharma controls all studies up to 90% of all studies are invalid unless its the ones that support my conspiratorial point of view blehlbelhbleh

Brother I have been watching your videos for years. Politics is not for the weak of heart and you do a great job. This country is in trouble it's not about black or white or gay or straight or Christian or Muslim it's about democracy... Those that want to take away the rights of the people need to first divide and break us down than take way our ability to care/ vote. So you ask, how do you take away our ability to vote? First you start by taking away the voting rights by changing the laws State by State using fear and lies from the poor, the uneducated, the elderly and minorities of all types. As you know America, its easy to hide behind the fear of deference and unknown. The big secret is this, these laws are being changed because the wealthiest among us understand if you scare White America into believing they are going to lose everything they will help the wealthiest among cut their own throats. America your unfounded fears have become the modern day trojan horse. Please always remember the real minority in this country are the Richest among us and the middleclass and the poor are threatening to control them with the vote, so the vote must go.... All of our politicians are now owned by the wealthiest among us because of the money it takes to be elected, that's right we saw it coming. Hopefully now you see their master plan. Today the plan is now in play all based on "FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN BY WHITE AMERICANS" But first the Richest among us must break us down into smaller groups. By having us fight each other over our biggest fears Racism, gender equality and religion, we become divided and our VOTERS rights stripped in the cover of darkness and so goes our democracy. Their is a reason why China has been 1 or 2 largest economy's in the world over the last 5000 years. Because folks Socialism and government control works for the wealthiest among us and always has and always will.. This isn't about Democrats, Republicans or Independents it's about THE HAVES AND HAVE NOT'S AMERICA. Just one man's opinion. GOD BLESS AMERICA PLEASE PRAY WE WAKEUP BEFORE ITS TODATE...Good luck guy's most likely you have bit off more than you can chew with Youtub and the Wealthiest among us... The Banks family..

Anyone who believes everything they read online (especially from a single app or gonzo news site) has the critical faculties of a goose to begin with. Misinformation has always been around, the problem is the poorly educated (or immigrants who somehow expect to follow American politics without even learning English).

Quit playing off Ivermectin as just being used as a horse is a drug that is also prescribed to humans for parasites...the large issue is the peeps who use the drug to treat COVID-19 which is unproven...not advocating for its use but that statement at the beginning of the video is exactly why trust in the media has fallen dramatically
