[See NewsBusters for more.] Hard-left comedian John Oliver on Sunday devoted almost his 30-minute Last Week Tonight show to propagandizing for socialist Bernie Sanders’s Medicare for All plan, downplaying problems like long wait time as “complicated.” The complete ending of private health insurance would be done “carefully.” The high costs must be considered with  “a lot of context around it.” The 20 minute screed was heavy on the lecture, light on problematic facts and also actual comedy. Serious, real-world problems like in Canada and Britain were dismissed as non-issues: “I get that no one likes waiting in line for anything. I get it. Most people see the line at Trader Joe's and either abandon their cart.”
