"A Red Letter Day" at the FCC – Net Neutrality Wins


"A Red Letter Day" at the FCC – Net Neutrality Wins

Michael Winship

There was snow in Washington, DC, Thursday morning, which always throws the federal capital into tailspins. So the marching band that the media reform group Free Press had hired to throw a parade for Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler canceled, the wimps. Nevertheless, a small, hearty group of activists braved the flurries and slippery streets to gather outside the FCC before the day’s historic meeting. They were there to thank Wheeler and celebrate the imminent passage of new rules to protect Net neutrality and preserve a free and open Internet.


Congratulations are in order, all around.

Let’s hope this isn’t another one of those things that looks good and then it turns out it allows tptb to do something even more horrible…
