John Oliver - It’s not supposed to be an easy relationship. It’s a problem. I read that book,‘This Town’ [by New York Times reporter Mark Leibovich]. Yes, there’s a lot of gossipy trash in it, but it has a cancerous black heart at the center of it. And I do think that’s Exhibit A in the way journalists and politicians in D.C. relate to each other. . . . It’s like a bunch of nerdy teenagers saying, ‘I want to be in with the popular kids.’ And that’s terrible. [As a journalist], you shouldn’t be wanting to go to a party for any other reason than to basically ruin it. If there’s not visible distrust [among reporters and people in power] then there’s a massive problem at the heart of journalism.
