We’ve all been reading about the recent debate over net neutrality, even posting info about it here, but it seems like no one has been able to appropriately summarize the possible new laws that will allow cable companies to create a two-tiered Internet system that will force companies to pay premiums to provide their services to consumers. John Oliver, the comedian behind HBO’s Last Week Tonight, though, found a way to discuss net neutrality in a highly entertaining way and renamed it “preventing cable fuckery.” His diatribe was so effective that he managed to shut down the FCC’s website where they invited the general public to weigh in on their thoughts of “cable fuckery.”
