John Oliver of Last Week Tonight uses bits of humor to do a very serious fact-based exposé on a different topic each week.

Sept. 11, 2022 the discussion was the Law&Order franchise and how it very inaccurately depicts police and prosecution. The real-life statistics John Oliver gives are quite staggering.  Very few cases go to trial in real life. There is very little training giving to real cops in New York regarding sexual assault.  And basically, Dick Wolf is pro-cop and that's all he's going to authorize being depicted.

And most alarmingly the unspoken unwritten (yet real) agreement with actual NYPD to portray fictional cops well -- because if L&O doesn't depict their fictional cops in a positive light, the real NYPD will make it difficult for the shows to do filming in New York.
