Today’s Required Viewing
Larry Wilmore seems to be talking a page out of John Oliver’s book with his new Nightly Show. Unlike the primordial Daily Show ooze that borne each of their shows, Wilmore and Oliver are using their half hours to drill down further into single topics, and in the process are creating something that approaches actual journalism.
Last night’s show was on black fatherhood, and rather than comment on it I would jus encourage everyone to take the time to watch it. I’ve seen this topic covered by actual cable news networks, and what Wilmore presented in his satiric news show puts them all to shame. (Or at least it would if cable news had any shame.)
Watch it here.
