Lewis Black puts Oprah and Trump on trial for laughs
Reuters - USA - This here is a rather ingenious little concept bolstered by the at once self-mocking and self-important intellectual comedic sensibility that we've come to identify with Comedy Central.

"Lewis Black's Root of All Evil" has middle-aged comic treasure Lewis Black's fearless stamp all over it, showing him setting up an ersatz trial pitting various individuals and entities of popular culture against one another to determine which is the more downright wicked.
