He does a brilliant job of explaining why the fight for new neutrality is important for everyone to get involved in and how that neutrality is being threatened by the new FCC chairperson Ajit Pai. His show has set up a website gofccyourself.com to make it easy to go straight to the relevant FCC page. Once there, click on ‘express’ link at the upper right, and leave your comment telling thee FCC that you back strong net neutrality backed by Title II oversight of ISPs. I already did so.
Am I remembering correctly that net neutrality is something else that has a lot of bipartisan support?
It isn’t the same life-or-death issue that health care “reform” is, but surely someone can arrange a lot of angry phone calls to red state legislators and loud town hall meetings in red states?
The FCC is already trying to spin their server crash as a DoS attack and not angry Americans responding to Oliver’s call to arms.
Hyphenman Jess: It’s entirely possible that there is also a DDoS attack going on – to prevent them from receiving so many calls for neutrality.

That’s true, you are absolutely correct. I’m unwilling, however, to easily attribute that level of craft to those involved. I think someone heard the phrase DoS attack somewhere and thought: that’s the ticket!
(And, no problem, because my ‘fs’ and ‘ss’ sound too much alike when I speak, I have to spell out my name--J, E, F, F (as in Frank), H, E, S, S (as in Sam) all the time.)
