HBO’s John Oliver’s brilliant net neutrality rant

Terrific. All the way through.

    His reference to the mob is perfect!

    Ironically, his show airs on cable so the cord cutters who would most benefit didn’t hear his brilliant argument for net neutrality.

      There are ways.

        True. I don’t have cable or HBO and I just saw it. I guess I meant that it’s ironic that he’s calling out the cable companies when they are kind of responsible for his show happening.

        • Moeskido

          They’re responsible for having made the decision to sell access to it. Oliver and his producers are responsible for making it. I’d rather pay him directly.

            It’s an HBO Production, it’s their show. They can get another host when Oliver’s contract runs out if they want and make it “Last Week Tonight with [Insert Name].” Just like the Daily Show.

            This is such a huge change in thinking, and I’m glad folks like Louis CK and Aziz Ansari are doing an end-run around big cable.
