John Oliver (HBO): Net Neutrality or Cable Company F- -kery – Video
Truthdig – Posted by Natasha Hakimi Zapata – Jun 3, 2014
“The cable companies have figured out the great truth of America,” explained the “Last Week Tonight” host Sunday. “If you want to do something evil, put it inside something boring.” Oliver then went on to give a hysterically funny call to arms to all Internet trolls to comment on the FCC’s website in order to save Net neutrality.
Trolls or not, however, this is indeed the time to speak up and save the open Internet. You can do so for the next few months at www.fcc.gov/comments.
If you’re not sure why Net neutrality is so important (and no one can blame you seeing as, like Oliver pointed out, the media’s coverage of the issue has been some of the most mind-numbingly boring television to date), watch his brilliant explanation about what losing it would do to the country, how intertwined cable company lobbies are with D.C. and how much cable companies resemble mobs. Seriously, it’s the most informative few minutes about net Neutrality out there.
And for those of you who already know and care about saving the Internet, watch the clip anyway. It will add years to your life in laughter

Cable companies are trying to create an unequal playing field for internet speeds, but they’re doing it so boringly that most news outlets aren’t covering it.
John Oliver explains the controversy and lets viewers know how they can voice their displeasure to the FCC.
