Coal company sues John Oliver for being John Oliver

I am aware of the ag-gag laws, but I am surprised of this development; the 1st amendment tested. :roll:

The John Oliver segment is pretty funny.



Go, Johnny, go.

I'd sooner stick my face in a pile of cow dung than watch anything where that muppet's lips are moving. It was traumatic enough just seeing the thumbnail. Completely irrelevant and uninteresting.

So your 1st amendment is irrelevant and let the coal magnates and princes of finance rule. You already have those ag-gag laws...

But you don't care.

No wonder... :roll:

Show me a reputable source on the story and maybe I'll peruse it. Oliver is a loathsome cretin and it is impossible to gain any edification from anything he says or does.

What story? There was several stories and they will be covered in court.

If you doubt Oliver's claims, prove him wrong, one claim after another.

So it goes.

I said nothing of the kind. What I said was that John Oliver makes me want to puke, nearly as much as you do.

Am tired of political satire.

This whole MSM deal is boring.

IIRC a major college did a survey and found around 90% of a news channel Trump coverage was negative, that isn't a news outlet, rather a propaganda outlet.

Dear Leader is making too much of satire of himself, I assume? :lol:

John Oliver: Propagandist.

What more needs to be said?
