WATCH: John Oliver Savagely Mocks OAN After Channel Names Him in Lawsuit

At one point, One America News looked like a serious challenger to Fox News. The network was regularly promoted by Donald Trump and prominent Republicans often appear on the channel.

OAN, however, was recently dropped by DirecTV, putting the future of the network in serious peril. The network has filed suit against AT&T, the company that owns DirecTV for violating a non-disparaging agreement. And they named host John Oliver in the suit. On Sunday night, the comedian responded.

Oliver began, “[The dropping of OAN happened] and not a moment too soon. Its coverage of Ukraine, in particular, has been appalling, with this f*cking guy suggesting that the bombing of a maternity hospital might have been a hoax.”

Oliver continued, “And look, I get that they are upset here, just like I get that they are an intellectually bankrupt organization full of opportunistic grifters who have nothing but make this country a worse place. But perhaps this isn’t the time for that. And perhaps I am sorry for taking joy in their misfortune and kicking them when they are so clearly down. But on the other hand, perhaps, I am not.”
