After the State of the Union address, a member of Congress threatened to throw a journalist off the balcony of the Capitol building. Sit with that for a moment. What was the journalist’s offense? Asking the congressman about the ongoing investigation into his 2010 campaign-fundraising activities.
The chairman of the FCC is willing to step into the fray on peering fights if it hurts innovation, but he’s not willing to tell us what he plans to do about the big defeat for Network Neutrality.
A New York congressman accosted a reporter after President Obama’s State of the Union address, reportedly threatening to throw him off a balcony on Capitol Hill.
I'm relieved that Net Neutrality's opponents have finally come clean. Sort of. For years a lineup of phone and cable industry mouthpieces had called Net Neutrality "a solution in search of a problem."

The Electronic Frontier Foundation’s recent Gizmodo post on Net Neutrality started off well. It rightly noted that “[v]iolations of network neutrality are a real and serious problem: in recent years we have seen dozens of ISPs in the U.S. and around the world interfere with and discriminate against traffic on their networks.” This is indeed a huge problem. Broadband providers should do just what their name implies: provide you with an Internet connection — and stay away from controlling how you use it. But then EFF took a wrong turn, asserting that we shouldn’t trust the FCC to save Net Neutrality.
