HBO’s John Oliver’s topic on this video is “Surveillance” and online privacy. It is quite an entertaining interview deeply mired in some troubling facts that have been revealed by Edward Snowden, a former system administrator who leaked classified NSA documents to the media over the last 2 years. This video clip is a bit rough around the edges, but is quite entertaining and informative. Oliver went to Russia to interview Snowden and in the end, they make the issue of government surveillance and privacy immediately relevant by using a “junk” example. Watch the clip. It’s about 33 minutes long.
