The FCC comments page went down on Monday morning following the viral distribution of Sunday night’s Last Week Tonight bit in which John Oliver basically implored people to take action. Of course, the FCC, never one to let on to any one source of influence, has stated that the site was down due to high traffic volume, but it wasnt’ sure if John Oliver‘s show was the cause of that volume.
I’m here to help. Yes. It was the sole cause. Don’t be stupid or coy, FCC.
I mean, Oliver went on a long rant about the problem at hand and simply put up the FCC comment page URL with no fancy graphics or jokes. He wanted people to reach out, and after the video went viral (800,000 or so vies as of press time), they did.
In case you missed it, here it is. Get to writin’ to your FCC.
