[News] Satirical News Show Clips

I decided to just put a John Oliver clip in this thread and change the name and scope rather than start a separate thread for Oliver's stuff.

So just put any video stuff in here; Samantha Bee, John Oliver, Seth Green, etc.

I'm surprised we don't see Some News on here. Let's fix that!

This one on Antifa vs Nazis is particularly great:

Nice. I watched that first one this weekend and thought he absolutely nailed it. It crossed my mind to post here, but I must have got distracted. Glad you did!

Roy Moore On Pedophilia Accusers: ‘These Women Are Only Discrediting Me Now Because Shifting Sociocultural Norms Have Created An Environment In Which Assault Allegations Are Taken Seriously’

The Onion wrote:

MONTGOMERY, AL—Waving off the current allegations against him as vicious attempts to sabotage his election bid, Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore told reporters Monday that the women accusing him of pedophilia were only doing so now because “shifting sociocultural norms have created an environment in which assault allegations are taken seriously.” “These women have had 30 years to come forward, and the one and only reason they’re speaking out now is because they suddenly have less fear that their lives will be utterly destroyed,” said Moore, adding that the women accusing him of sexually pursuing them as teenagers were just several of many “jumping on the sexual assault bandwagon these days” in light of meaningful systemic change and the fact that society would no longer immediately discredit them. “My accusers are nothing but slandering opportunists taking advantage of the deteriorating influence of the patriarchy that has traditionally silenced any woman who makes such claims. If the American public at large had not finally begun truly hearing victims and decided that enough was enough, I guarantee that these women would never have had the audacity to accuse me of such heinous crimes.” Moore went on to say that he would nevertheless continue his run for the Senate despite the charges against him because while the norms had shifted, they had not shifted nearly as much in Alabama.

I read this twice before noticing the source.... The worst part was realising how close I was to not double-taking from sheer incredulity to verify.

I did exactly the same thing. The world has gone mad, i expect to start talking to floating cats any moment.

Are we talking Wonderland or Nightvale floating cats?

This is important.

I thought that story was real. If it was it wouldn't have surprised me

Honestly, the first thing that really gave it away was that Moore was quoted as saying the words "Sociocultural norms." That seems a bit above his vocabulary level

The thing about satire is that it works by explicitly talking about the true but hidden subtext that we don't talk about.
