John Oliver on FCC proposals to kill Net Neutrality

John Oliver, doing more in 13 minutes for the cause of net neutrality than years of campaigning by digital rights NGOs, academics and certain brands of big tech...

I particularly liked his point (at about 10m 20s) about corporate America understanding that "if you want to do something evil put it inside something boring. Apple could put the entire text of Mein Kampf inside the iTunes user agreement and you'd just go urrg ur I agree..."

His call to arms to internet trolls to explain, in the abusive way only they do, their disapproval, at fcc.gov/comments, however, may well land him in trouble, after the FCC site reportedly went under with the weight of the response elicited.
