Faux Urgency

by on October 4, 2010 · 0 comments

Tech policy polemicist Scott Cleland has hit home with today’s “FreePress’ Faux Urgency on Net Neutrality.”

FreePress’ problem is that people have wised up to their repeated hysterical calls to “Save the Internet” from a problem that has never materialized as they recklessly warned. FreePress has failed miserably in finding or defining any real-world problem that needs radical intervention to fix.

Cleland is meaner to the folks at Free Press than I would be, but he’s right to note that the problems net neutrality regulation might fix haven’t materialized over a long period of, yes, faux urgency.
