This last Sunday night, John Oliver gave us a rare example of pop news covering net neutrality, the associated monopolization, revolving door government appointments and the strong-arming of Netflix.
From The Week:
On Sunday night's Last Week Tonight, Oliver tackled net neutrality, the idea that all legal content on the internet should be served up to your house on a level playing field. The Federal Communications Commission is considering new rules that would allow a two-tiered system. Oliver, like most net neutrality proponents, isn't impressed: "The point is, the internet in its current form is not broken, and the FCC is currently taking steps to fix that."
