I really like John Oliver’s show. I often find his commentary brilliant, as well as his ability to distill complex subjects into plain words, often alongside witty, funny remarks. As a matter of fact, had I not liked Oliver’s show, I’d probably refrain from writing this article.

Perhaps coincidentally, I received a call yesterday from a good friend in Los Angeles. Knowing that I’m currently in Israel visiting my family, he was wondering how I was doing. We had a good talk, and eventually he told me about how the current Israel-Gaza conflict is reflected in mainstream US media.
