John Oliver on Dr. Oz

Major kudos to John Oliver for this piece on his HBO "Last Week Tonight" show about Dr. Oz, the weight-loss scams he promotes, and the government's lack of interest in regulating the dangerous dietary supplement industry (despite a lack of evidence that most of these products work). Although I have pounded on Dr. Oz on my radio show for years, there certainly isn't another TV show that has devoted as much time to exposing him as Oliver did...

On Twitter, Oliver has started a hashtag for viewers to suggest Fake Dr. Oz Episodes, and there are some pretty good ones.
