And not a mention that Net Neutrality killer/Verizon piggie Pai was nominated to the FCC by none other than that reactionary Republican, Barack Obama.

Funny, how the completely bipartisan nature of our oppression never comes up.

Nor did she mention that we lost the media war in 1996 when another democrat president signed the Telecommunications Act that brought us the unregulated, unfettered, and unhinged mass media we have today.

Slick Willie Clinton killed media diversity when he signed the Telecommunication Act of 1996. Any other rules or regulations since then are just cherries on top of the cake handed to telecom and media corporations back then. Remember all the low prices and vigorous competition they promised us? It was a lie then, it’s a lie now.
