How Lobbyists Killed Net Neutrality
Quick, share this before Comcast throttles our connection! (they're allowed to do that now.)
This is Josh Silver, Director of Represent.Us and former internet and media reform advocate. He spent years working on Net Neutrality as president of FreePress, so he knows what he’s talking about. In fact, the reason Josh left the media reform world is because he got sick of seeing his efforts thwarted by an openly corrupt political system.
That corruption just struck again. This time, it came in the form of a devastating ruling on net neutrality. But as Josh explains, that ruling was made possible by a chain of events set in motion years before. The message here is clear: If we want a free and open internet, we need to deal with the corruption that is money in politics first.
