Watch John Oliver tear into the ridiculous US presidential primary system

HBO’s John Oliver takes issue with the way the United States chooses its president every four years. Specifically, Oliver focused on the way primaries and caucuses work, and how the system isn’t as democratic as regular voters might think. Oliver argues that either party can circumvent the will of the people by taking advantage of certain loopholes in the rulebooks, and they essentially bypass the primary vote if they want to.

Game of Thrones YouTube Theories

HBO is abusing copyright to take ‘Game of Thrones’ fan videos off YouTube

HBO is abusing copyright to take ‘Game of Thrones’ fan videos off YouTube

HBO owns Game of Thrones, the most pirated TV show in existence.

They’re not remotely infringing on copyright, in the same way that talking about Game of Thrones at a bar isn’t infringing. But nonetheless, HBO used YouTube’s copyright system to take down Frikidoctor’s videos, and YouTube did nothing to help.
