| Have we no journalists anymore?...
... Are they all just either left or right versions of Pravda? And lazy versions at that? The reason I say this is that in 20 minutes John Oliver manages to be more illuminating on the subject of "The Green New Deal" than an army of cable, network, and newspaper journalists have been in the past few months. He debunks the end of airplanes and of cows that have been right wing talking points. He points out that The Green New Deal was never written to be a bill to be voted up or down in Congress, but a back of the envelope calculation, a starting point for discussion, written on just fourteen pages versus The Cheesecake Factory's 21 page menu.

And he manages to be funny at the same time employing the help of Bill Nye in his discussion and even dragged his disappointment with Season Eight of Game of Thrones into the discussion. Highly recommended if you want to know what the Green New Deal does and does not discuss, because you are not going to get it from our so-called journalists apparently.
