Video: The Daily Show's John Oliver on Losing his Soul

Tonight during a break in debate action, Saint Anselm student Ahmed Saeed '13 interviewed The Daily Show's John Oliver. Asked about the spin room and speaking with candidates and the media following the debate, John Oliver said, "I've been in three or four spin rooms while on The Daily Show and I lose a piece of my soul whenever I go. I don't even know how many I've got left, I may lose the last piece tonight." Oliver continued by saying they make him feel "hollow" and affect his "belief in humanity and democracy."

Upon interviewing Oliver, Ahmed Saeed, an international relations major from Manchester, N.H., admitted he was nervous. "It was a very Nixon-Frost sort of ordeal, if you know what I mean?"

Yes, Ahmed, we know exactly what you mean.
