On the most recent edition of Last Week Tonight, host John Oliver tackled the issue of encryption, spending a lot of time on the continuing conflict between Apple and the FBI on the matter. While acknowledging that the government has legitimate points on the difficulties encryption poses for law enforcement, Oliver brings up a point continually reiterated by Apple's supporters in this fight, that weakening security to catch criminals means compromising the security of all of Apple's customers.
Oliver goes in-depth on the topic, and even makes a "suggestion" about how Apple should market their side of the issue in the video below. Do note that parts of this video are not safe for work.
Oliver is just the latest in a long line of public figures to side with Apple in the encryption debate, joining former intelligence officials, other technology companies, and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
