Last Week Tonight: Encryption (March 13)

The broad focus of Last Week Tonight may have been encryption, but the bulk of the segment was really about Apple’s refusal to write a code that would let the FBI break into the iPhone of the San Bernardino shooter. John Oliver and his team explored the possible implications of writing such a code as well as the political reactions to Apple’s stance. We have to say, the episode was a little bit light on laughs, which was probably a result of a somewhat technically-complicated topic. Luckily, it ended on a high note, with another one of Last Week Tonight‘s patented “realistic” commercials. We have to say, every Apple commercial could use a little more creepy Eugene Mirman.
