Accuracy in Media

Mainstream media, led by MSNBC and CNN, joined Sen. Bernie Sanders (I.-Vt.) Thursday in decrying the FCC’s decision to roll back the net neutrality rules imposed on Internet service providers.

CNN chimed in with an article originally titled “End of the Internet as We Know It” listing several reasons why the rollback was a bad idea.

The internet did not have government regulation before net neutrality rules were imposed, and technology has improved greatly, making it harder for broadband providers to discriminate and censor content.

Even one early supporter of net neutrality, Netflix, has admitted as much.

“Where net neutrality is really important is the Netflix of 10 years ago,” Chief Executive Reed Hastings said in May.

The decision prompted New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to announce Thursday that he is suing to block the end of net neutrality rules because regulation is always better than a free-market solution to liberals.

    Bernie doesn’t even know what the internet is. He spent his honey moon in Russia. If the world would be communist or socialist as in his wet dreams, there would be no internet. Go away commie

    The ‘Net Neutrality’ went into effect in 2015. It was promulgated by a 3 to 2 vote…what is going to be different now that it is rescinded than what it was before 2015??? I shall survive.

    The internet was doing just fine a little over two years ago before this silly regulation was imposed by Obama, now it is going back to where it should be.

    Sanders and Comcast are loyal Communists who actually want to cloak the Internet in Soviet-like, Stalin-style Big Lies. It’s like the Fairness Doctrine of the 1980s. A bunch of twisted, perverse bullshit. If these Marxist morons really cared about Internet free speech they would encourage Cuba, China, Brazil et al. to end state censorship, not criticize the U.S.
