John Oliver (HBO) on Net Neutrality: Preventing Cable Company Fuckery

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO): Net Neutrality
June 1st, 2014

"The Internet is NOT broken and the FCC is taking steps to FIX that." ---John Oliver

The President [Obama] has picked Tom Wheeler, a former top lobbyist for cable and wireless companies to be the next Chair of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

"Yes the guy who used to run the cable industry's lobbying arm is now running the agency tasked with regulating it. That is the equivalent on needing a babysitter and hiring a dingo." 

Net Neutrality. Do you really understand it?

John Oliver from Comedy Central's DAILY SHOW helps make sense of this movement on his hilarious and informative HBO hit show Last Week Tonight.



"If you want to do something evil, put it in something boring."
