Yeah, the FCC's John Oliver-related "cyber-attack" claims were bullshit

One more drop of bullshit in Ajit Pai’s big ol’ coffee cup of crap this week, with the government’s inspector general’s office releasing a report stating that a cyber-attack the FCC claimed it was hit by last year—and which “coincidentally” lined up with John Oliver calling for his HBO audience to flood the…

Ajit Pai can't even put together an FCC advisory panel without it being full of corruption

Ajit Pai, America’s 12th-best Bernie Madoff cosplayer, has been busy during his time as chair of the Federal Communications Commission.

FCC insists John Oliver didn’t break its website, net neutrality group disagrees

Last night, John Oliver put a call out for his Last Week Tonight viewers to band together and let the FCC know how they feel about net neutrality and the need for ISP regulation, going so far as to buy gofccyourself.com and set it up to redirect back to a page on the FCC’s own site where users can leave comments and…
