Support Network Neutrality

Watch - Why everyone should care about Net Neutrality: Because it would preserve the only mass communications medium in which individuals create around 60% of the content and prevent it being turned into a one-way communication forum like television, radio and newspapers.

The telephone companies want to steal our voices. They want to crush the best emerging medium for democratic communication. They want to sell you the 'better internet' they had already promised to build with their outrageous profits over the last decade, but didn't, for the price premium of losing citizen political, entertainment and social networking media. They need to be told that equal access to the net isn't for sale.

Don't buy the lies, save the internet.

Protect democracy! Don't support so-called net neutrality.

And if you don't want to listen to me, with Hands Off the Internet, how about this video blogger, who agrees net neutrality is a sham.

Or even better, how about Dr. Alfred Kahn, a regulatory expert and a liberal to boot!

Research the issues. Don't just drink the kool-aide because it sounds good.

Protect the phone companies' profits! Support letting the telecommunications companies' lobbyists write our FCC regulations!


I'm so very sorry for you that your little throwaway comment in that previous post just ticked me off instead of 'educating' me, and prompted me to write even more about this. Do you think I don't know you're a corporate astroturf blogger? Did you think maybe that I hadn't heard anything about this before, considering that, oh I don't know, I wrote a good bit of an essay this very week praising network neutrality?

Anyway, I'm sorry if now that your move backfired, your bosses are giving you a hard time. Consider joining a union, maybe write your representatives in support of national card check laws. Everybody's organized except the people, you know.
