Obama’s FCC to Abandon Net Neutrality?
by Megan Tady
Is the Obama FCC siding with the largest cable and phone companies, and against Net Neutrality and universal Internet access?
The Obama administration has long vowed to protect Net Neutrality and bridge the digital divide, and FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski picked up this baton when he took up his post last year. But now Genachowski appears to be wavering.
According to an article in the Washington Post, Genachowski may sit on his hands rather than “reclassify” broadband to make sure the FCC can protect Internet users. The decision not to reclassify would be a grave mistake – one that would threaten the Internet as we know it.
