FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler Responds to John Oliver’s Net Neutrality Segment

John Oliver is definitely affecting change as the FCC’s Tom Wheeler had to address, in an official capacity, Oliver’s jokes about him during a segment on net neutrality on Last Week Tonight. In the segment, Oliver suggested that Wheeler is like a dingo in that you shouldn’t leave a dingo with your baby just like you shouldn’t leave Wheeler as the chairman of the FCC having be a former lobbyist for cable and wireless companies.

Wheeler felt it prudent during some sort of hearing that he should address the issue of his identity as a human or a dingo. Unlike Donald Rumsfield avoiding Louis C.K.’s lizard question, Wheeler earned himself another segment on Last Week Tonight with making an official statement.
