John Oliver: Quit Assuming All Unhoused Are Drug Addict Criminals

Oliver concluded that the issue wouldn’t be solved overnight, and it would take a lot of resources, funding, and long-term commitment.

The homeless population in the United States continues to rise, and HBO host John Oliver decided to spotlight the growing matter on his “Last Week Tonight” main story

Oliver began by emphasizing that there are over 580,000 people experiencing homelessness in the country, which has increased for the fourth consecutive year. Furthermore, the HBO host hit news outlets such as Fox News for creating a fear-mongering for the public around the homeless community. 

“I know it is easy to criticize Fox News for being alarmist — alarmism is their whole thing,” Oliver said. “But the truth is, even some residents of Austin, famously a blue dot in a red state, have said it’s been a struggle to reconcile their feelings about their homeless neighbors.”

Nonetheless, Oliver didn’t only hit conservatives over the issue; the late-night host also went after liberals, who he states believe homelessness is a personal failing. 

“If you’re wondering why homelessness continues to get worse in this country, one reason is there are a lot of people, even liberals, who believe that homelessness is a personal failing, poverty can be avoided, and their own good fortune makes them not only better than the unhoused but more worthy of comfort,” Oliver said. 

Oliver concluded that the issue wouldn’t be solved overnight, and it would take a lot of resources, funding, and long-term commitment. 

“I do not want to over-simply the logistics involved here. It will take a massive commitment in infrastructure, funding, and resources. But the very first step here is a collective change of perceptions,” Oliver said. 

“Basically we need to stop being d–ks, and assuming that the unhoused are a collection of drug addict criminals who’ve chosen this life for themselves, instead of people suffering the inevitable consequences of gutted social programs and a nationwide divestment from affordable housing.”

Mediaite reports that Lara Logan has been dropped by her talent agency UTA in the fallout regarding comments she made during a guest appearance on Fox News in late November. 

The former “60 minutes” correspondent compared Dr. Anthony Fauci to Dr. Josef Mengele, the Nazi doctor who performed cruel medical experiments on Jewish prisoners.

“This is what people say to me, that he doesn’t represent science to them. He represents Josef Mengele. The Nazi doctor who did experiments on Jews during the Second World War and in the concentration camps,” Logan said. 

UTA chief communications officer Seth Oster confirmed the agency severed ties with Logan several weeks ago. Additionally, a UTA insider corroborated to Mediaite that she was let go over her “highly offensive” and “unacceptable” remarks, which sparked anger within the agency.

Fox News never employed Logan, but she did host a show on their streaming platform on Fox Nation (“Lara Logan Has No Agenda”) and appeared regularly on the cable news network as an unpaid guest.

However, since those comments, Logan has disappeared from the air at Fox News and hasn’t been booked since.

DirecTV recently announced that it is dropping One America News (OAN) from its listings. As a result, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) says he is canceling his subscription to the satellite television company. 

“DirecTV is canceling OAN, so I just canceled my home DirecTV. Why give money to people who hate us?” Paul said on Twitter

Paul wasn’t alone in his stance deciding to cut ties with the company as Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) commented on the matter on Twitter. 

“The Left’s purge continues: YouTube demonetizes Dan Bongino. DirectTV drops One America News. Twitter suspends Dr. Malone. Who’s next?” Jordan tweeted

DirecTV stated the decision to drop the network was made “following a routine internal review,” adding that keeping OAN in their lineup wasn’t a good business decision.  

“We informed Herring Networks that, following a routine internal review, we do not plan to enter into a new contract when our current agreement expires,” a DirecTV spokesperson said in an emailed statement to Reuters.

The next Presidential Election isn’t until 2024, but plenty of politicians are eyeing a possible run to the White House in two years. One of them is former President Donald Trump. After losing in 2020, he has hinted about a possible run in two years.

When asked about Trump running again for president in 2024, Fox News host Laura Ingraham wasn’t committed to supporting him yet during an interview with Northern Virginia Magazine

“I’m not saying I’m there for him yet,” Ingraham said. “But I think whether he runs or not — I mean, his policies worked. Trump’s blueprint for policy — a forward-looking, optimistic set of pro-America policies — that blueprint, without a doubt, is winning.” 

According to a public poll, it shows that the vast majority of Republicans would support Trump, and many in the political party hope to see him run for president again. 

It’s too early to commit to a candidate until all those planning to run for president declare their candidacy, as it allows for everyone to see all their options on the Republican side.
