What is Net Neutrality? If you don't already know, the concept advocates for no restrictions by Internet service providers and governments on content, sites, platforms, the kinds of equipment that may be attached, and the modes of communication.
We view with alarm anything that threatens that principle. The new order proposed by the FCC chair appears to do that very thing.
In Congress, only Sen. Al Franken has been outspoken on the issue, and you might want to take a look at the warning he sends.
Because the basis for this threat appears to be another sell-out by President Obama, it is all the more credible.
The FCC passed its new "order" by a 3-2 vote (here's an assessment, for what it's worth), but this sentence leaps out at us:
The commission's order is rumored to be 90 pages or so long, but there's no public copy available as of yet.
Proposed in secrecy and passed in secrecy and now discussed in secrecy. Doesn't seem kosher.
