“Net Neutrality” Grasstroturf

by on May 22, 2006 · 6 comments

The opponents of broadband regulation have produced an amusing animation that pretty effectively skewers the campaign for “net neutrality.” Why, yes, of course it’s produced by large corporations seeking after their own interests. But the piece effectively points out that the campaign for federal regulation of broadband is also a product of large corporations seeking after their own interests.

So, if it’s a debate between two large corporate interests, we can drop the ad hominem and just discuss which group of large corporations is trying to protect its property and its investments, and which group of large corporations is trying to win rents through the legislative and regulatory process. Figured it out yet? Good.

    I know you guys probably won’t post this, since you deleted my last comment, but I think it speaks volumes about both your confidence in your own argument and your willingness to participate in an open debate on the subject when you censor people who disagree with you. Bravo.

    Barry, not being subjected to your comments is one the greatest single features of TLF. Don’t convince them to go all squishy on us now!

    Barry,

    I may have deleted your comment by accident while cleaning out the roughly 100 pieces of spam we get each day. If so, I apologize. There’s no censorship going on here.
