Sponsored Content: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)

John Oliver explains why the integrity of local news is so important, how sponsored content could damage that integrity, and why the Venus Veil is so much more than a blanket! (It’s not.)

    In my country Indonesia, sponsored content exists too, even before John Oliver bring it to LWT. In Indonesia, there are sponsored content in national TVs and local TVs, some are in special segments for about 1 hour, some are included in TV series.

    I would like to share my experience concerning stem cells in treating MS. On one occasion I was stationed at a military hospital, in Belgrade (Serbia). I was in a room with one elderly, retired army officer, for a few days. He told me on several occasions that we should expect one more patient to join us, but this patient is "at the treatment right now". He didn't want to discuss the nature of this guys condition, nor did I want to know, anyway. I had my own problems at that time, as you can imagine. After a few days, med staff brought in a wheelchair, where sat a guy not much older than me (I was 25 at time), who got up from that chair, with obvious difficulty, but without anyone's help, and, since it was lunch time, set by a table in the room (I was having my lunch in bed, thank you very much), and started eating. This older army officer just dropped his jaw, and looked like he's seen a ghost. What I figured out, from conversations that were to come, is that this young soldier had MS, and was, supposedly, treated with stem cell therapy. As they told me, he was not able to move anything but his fingers, before the treatment, but after some time, he could move around all by himself, but with obvious difficulty. Now I do not know how much truth is in their stories, nor did I checked (it is the Army, and I was just a civilian guy), but I do not know why these people would lie to me. Oh, yeah, while I was there, for my head injury, they also tested some new machinery on me. Some kind of electroencephalograph I think, but I do not imagine it has anything to do with this MS/stem cell research.

    The problem with all these advertisements, is they are using trusted news stations to promote products and making false claims and using the video reel to promote the product and make it look legit to the public.

    Well one could say your entire show is sponsored contest. I mean you never share any of the Biden Gaffes, youve never spoken about Hunter Bidens Burisma dealings or his laptop. You said nothing about the ongoing investigation in the Wuhan labs or the Fauci emails. You never said anything about the Black on Asian violent spike, you only referred to it generaly and mentioned white priviledge when almost all perps are black. You never said anything about BLM riots and the destruction and deaths they caused but you spent hours on the storming of the capitol that was infinitely times more peacefull than any of the BLM riots. You dont mention the border crisis, you dont mention that the Chinese leader came out and said China will own America in 15 years. Its like everything you do is avoiding to acknowledge how ever Trump was better than biden. How much are you getting paid for your sponsored content?

    Always learning about the US by John Oliver. I live in a country where sponsored content and advertisements are not being inserted in daily news journals. In my case, that's Belgium. I also only watch our public channel actually, which shows only some sponsored content frequently in seperate segments and no advertisements at all. And for a first time, I'm not really interested in the actual content of all these ads which Oliver presents here. Too American for me.
