John Oliver examines net neutrality under Republican leadershipBy Shawn Knight 14 comments
John Oliver, host of HBO's Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, spoke at length on the topic of net neutrality on his show roughly three years ago. The 13-minute-long segment garnered tons of media attention and was even credited with sending enough traffic to the FCC's website to crash it.
The net neutrality saga was eventually ironed out in the eyes of many thanks to moves by former FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler and his fellow Democratic commissioners. Now, with a Republican administration in power, the government is making plans to roll back net neutrality which prompted another segment on the matter from the British late-night comedian.
In his latest rant, Oliver again breaks down the basics of net neutrality and encourages viewers to voice their displeasure to the FCC.
