Everyone's saying "only in America" as if every other country isn't getting fucked by capitalism.

Looking through Last Week Tonight videos basically reads as a list of "Things you thought were fine but are actually being completely undermined by greed and elitism"

Well, I'm a little disappointed that John Oliver went with anus for Janus, instead of joking about how Janus was the two faced Roman God who could look into the past and the future.

Pure comedy from the outside of the US that this sort of blatant conflicts of interest appointments are not blocked and shamed.

As long as my tax money goes into the NWS, I don't see how they can legally prevent me from using its data.

If you supply the data in an format only that prevents the average citizen from using it then only organisations who can turn the data into usable formats have access. Or in other words, no founding for the internet service.

If it hasn’t been said yet, Barry Meyers withdrew his name from the process due to “health concerns” just over a month after this video came up.

I exclusively check my weather on the NOAA website. I encourage others to stop providing ad revenue to Weather.com and AccuWeather by using the free (and much better) National Weather Service forecast.

That snarky weatherman is not alone. I worked in a news station with a completely different weatherman who sometimes was like that. Although everyone in there with snarky dude whoever were asking him stuff from off-camera got yelled at by the news director for like an hour over professionalism for sure. Probably less the weather guy. Weather people are harder to come by than reporters or anchors.

Being from Oklahoma, Accuweather's conquest scares the hell out of me considering that Oklahoma has had more violent tornadoes (EF4's and EF5's) than any other state by a double-digit margin. So if it were up to Accuweather, I would have to pay them before I could see whether a violent tornado was heading toward me. Knowing these assholes, they'd also lobby to have tornado sirens torn down so you'd be forced to pay to them to ensure your survival. Welcome to 'Murica where corporate greed runs the show.

I feel like this could be an actual headline: "Nestle buys rights to air, charges people money to breathe it."

This administration is keen on conflicts of interest and using your public servant position to advance yourself on taxpayer dollars and yet, the poorest/uninformed people voted for him and, will continue to do so.

I think out of all of the weather channels'' over the top cgi weather segments, the flooding ones are actually one of the best; they do a really good job of putting into perspective how deep and powerful those flooding disasters can be.

Not really a corporation but several people that are trying to make accuweather (American weather system) Sellable, which is the source to all weather news in USA. And then they will make it illegal to see EU weather casting...... It is pretty horrible it I have to be honest, specially because weather systems are getting more and more important for everyone

I’m almost sure that nobody cares, but in the 80s Accuweather graphics it says that the USA has the world’s deepest snows, when in fact it’s actually Aomori, Japan.

@Robert Nett You're correct though. Classical American exceptionalism, where they are both the rule, and everyone else hews to its conventions, AND the exception, where they are singularly the best in the world at anything and everywhere else is a shithole country.

@Steve Huff I talk as an outsider looking in. But a few years back it seemed on one hand that US foreign policy was all over the world, while the majority of it's inhabitants (again speaking from an outside perspective) didn't have much of a clue what's going on outside their borders.

Just so we're clear, america never offered help. They let the holocaust happen before even listening to the calls for help from Britain. My point being, america doesn't offer help, and apparently is ungrateful for receiving it.

Accepting help and cooperating with others makes us weak and subservient...now, where have I heard people spout nonsense like that before? It was recent, I know that. Here in the U.S., too. And it's not uncommon among a certain part of our society. Oh. All I had to do was wait for a few more seconds for John to drop a name.

america thrives on instilling fear into its citizens to maintain control. These graphics are a great visual aid to keep low focused americans inline.

Nah. That's simple PR. It's less maintaining control - it's basically about selling stuff.
