Just in time for Prime Day, John Oliver exposes Amazon’s high-pressure warehouses

As of 6 am CDT, YouTube and HBO Go still don’t have the latest episode of Last Week Tonight ready to stream. I’m sure it’s just coincidence. (sarcasm mine)

John Oliver loves to poke the bear. That is, if the bear is a metaphor representing an individual or corporation the Last Week Tonight host basically double-dog-dares to sue him for airing exposés about their shadiness, heartlessness, or downright criminal negligence. Well, last night, Oliver went after the biggest business bear in the e-commerce forest, spending the bulk of Sunday’s episode examining just how Amazon (and those online retailers who follow Amazon’s lead) are able to deliver you that package of “emergency Oreos” the very next day.
