John Oliver: The Ultimate Takedown of Alex Jones

Diane Ravitch's blog

Get a cup of coffee and sit down. John Oliver dissects Alex Jones, the rightwing provocateur who makes money saying insane things. Jones is the talk-show host who pushed the outrageous claim that the Sandy Hook massacre never happened, that it was staged by the federal government to promote gun control.

Oliver totally demolishes Jones’ credibility. Jones complained that his critics take his words out of context, so Oliver shows his remarks in full, in context. They don’t get any better.

This segment demonstrates the power of humor to inform and the power of evil to mislead.
