Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives.
Did calling FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler a dingo steer the Net Neutrality debate to its conclusion?
Ever since comedian John Oliverin June explaining his views on this difficult topic -- causing the to crash -- there have been mutterings that his intervention was decisive.
It was inevitable, therefore, that he might spend a couple of minutes of last night's "Last Week Tonight" in a mood of celebration. On Thursday, the to preserve an open Internet.
Oliver still believes that Wheeler is a dingo, despite the chairman's strenuously neutral denial. The comedian said, however: "It's just in this one instance, you did not eat the baby. So, good dingo. Keep it up."
Oliver explained that the Net neutrality decision was good news because "the Internet service providers are sad."
He did reserve, though, a special slap for Verizon. You might remember that when last week's decision emerged, Verizon chose to issue.
"By the way, Verizon," he said. "I'll say this for Morse code. At least it didn't drop out for no f***ing reason any time people walked into their kitchen."
Of course, this one decision may change very little and may also be subject to legal challenges for many a year.
It's good to know that comedy can, though, have an impact. Because the comedy in Congress seems to have none at all.
