“Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver took on (and took down) corporate consolidation on Sunday and no one was spared — not even the company that signs his checks.
“Full disclosure here: Even our own parent company Time Warner is currently trying to merge with AT&T, which makes this story a little dangerous for us to do,” Oliver said at the start of his lead segment.
“Although, you know, that is presuming that AT&T executives manage to get their sh—y service working long enough to see it.”
“AT&T: It’s the top telecom company around — alphabetically, and nothing else,” he continued, to the delight of a studio audience apparently as frustrated by the cellphone service provider.
“F— you, AT&T!” Oliver added a few minutes later in an awesome callback after moving on to the airlines and rail against politicians who claim to support small businesses while allowing near-monopolies in many segments of the economy.
