The Right’s War On Net Neutrality

jamie writes “To understand the debate being waged in the United States over Net Neutrality, it’s important to understand just how drastically one side has been misled. The leaders of the American Right are spreading the lie that Net Neutrality is a government takeover of the internet, with the intention of silencing conservative voices. (Limbaugh: “All you really have to know about Net Neutrality is that its biggest promoters are George Soros and Google.”) This may be hard to believe to those of us who actually know what it’s about — reinstating pre-2005 law that ensured internet providers could discriminate on the basis of volume but not content. Since the opposing side is so badly misinformed, those of us who want the internet to remain open to innovation and freedom of expression have to help educate them before the debate can really be held.”
