John Oliver, I’m disappointed. :( (First World Manila Podcast #17)

Though I’m a fan of John Oliver, I was disappointed in his recent segment on authoritarianism. He’s didn’t give the full picture of why Duterte is popular in the Philippines, and thus his audience, which is in the millions, may end up with a simplistic view of the situation here. This is neither helpful nor constructive if we want to solve the root problems plaguing Philippine society.

You can watch John Oliver’s segment on authoritarianism here.
