Must-See Video: John Oliver on the Plague of Online Harassment

Mon, Jun 22, 2015 at 5:48:23 pm


John Oliver demonstrates again why he's one of the best commentators on our dysfunctional society, with a great segment on the major problem of online harassment.

Part of this video deals with journalist Amanda Hess's awful tales of harassment on Twitter, and they really are awful. No one should be targeted like she was.

But I'm at a loss to explain how someone who was a target of this kind of threatening harassment could write an article like this one, defending one of the worst cyberstalkers ever to abuse Twitter, Chuck C. Johnson.
