John Oliver's Net neutrality response swamps


FCC
The agency's comment system, accepting public input on proposed Net neutrality rules, buckles after
the comedian tells Internet trolls to pile on.

When the Federal Communications Commission released its proposed Net Neutrality regulations,
Chairman Tom Wheeler said the founding fathers were likely looking down on the public outcry over
the draft rules and smiling.

They must be laughing hysterically now.


The FCC's online public-comment system stumbled under heavy traffic Monday after comedian John
Oliver capped a 13-minute segment about Net neutrality -- the concept that all Internet content
should be delivered without preference or discrimination -- with a rallying cry to the Internet's trolls to
visit the FCC's website and "focus your indiscriminate rage in a useffil direction."

Net neutrality regulations could have the power to stifle or preserve technological innovation and
freedom of speech, as well as influence how quickly you get emails, whether your Netflix streams
buffer, and how much you pay for Internet connection and services that exist there.
The clip, from Oliver's 1-IBO program "Last Week Tonight" on Sunday, was shared widely on social
networks like Twitter, with the YouTube clip's view count approaching the 700,000 mark. Oliver's
program itself was watched by 1 million viewers during its first airing, according to TV by the
Numbers, a website that reports television ratings from Nielsen.
After Net neutrality regulations set in 2010 were thrown by a federal appeals court earlier this year, the
FCC's next move was watched closely by consumer advocates, Internet companies, service providers
and the tech press -- and, increasingly, mainstream consumers sometimes uncertain about what the
subject even means. Elements of Wheeler's draft rule were leaked, and public confrision -- about
whether these were proposals or instituted rules, what was actually being proposed, and how the
Internet works -- were difficult to dispel.
As with any good comedian, Oliver's chief goal was to land solid laughs. For facts about Net
neutrality and the FCC's proposals, check coverage from CNET's Marguerite Reardon, who has
covered the issues extensively.

That was classic. I loved the comparison of the promise to comply with the NN rules and the promise to show up at your
house between certain hours. BAM!
