I don't know why Idjit Pie even bothers with this whole farce. We all know how this chapter is going to end.

the internet must die so it can be reborn as a public service

don't need to regulate the behavior of shitty corporations if you're not relying on them!

The only potential silver lining is that the mega telecoms may decide to throttle 4chan.

A.G. Schneiderman: I Will Sue To Stop Illegal Rollback Of Net Neutrality

Quote
A.G. Schneiderman Will Lead Multistate Lawsuit

AG's Investigation into 2 Million Comments that Stole Real Americans' Identities Also Continues 


Today, New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman released the following statement upon the Federal Communications Commission's vote, announcing that he will lead a multistate lawsuit to stop the rollback of net neutrality:

"The FCC's vote to rip apart net neutrality is a blow to New York consumers, and to everyone who cares about a free and open internet. The FCC just gave Big Telecom an early Christmas present, by giving internet service providers yet another way to put corporate profits over consumers. Today's rollback will give ISPs new ways to control what we see, what we do, and what we say online. That's a threat to the free exchange of ideas that's made the Internet a valuable asset in our democratic process.

Today's new rule would enable ISPs to charge consumers more to access sites like Facebook and Twitter and give them the leverage to degrade high quality of video streaming until and unless somebody pays them more money. Even worse, today's vote would enable ISPs to favor certain viewpoints over others.

New Yorkers deserve the right to a free and open Internet. That's why we will sue to stop the FCC's illegal rollback of net neutrality.

Today's vote also follows a public comment process that was deeply corrupted, including two million comments that stole the identities of real people. This is a crime under New York law - and the FCC's decision to go ahead with the vote makes a mockery of government integrity and rewards the very perpetrators who scammed the system to advance their own agenda.

This is not just an attack on the future of our internet. It's an attack on all New Yorkers, and on the integrity of every American's voice in government - and we will fight back."

For seven months, Attorney General Schneiderman has been investigating the flood of fake comments submitted during the net neutrality comment process. The Attorney General's latest analysis shows that two million comments stole the identities of real Americans - including over 100,000 comments per state from New York, Florida, Texas, and California. Yet the FCC has repeatedly refused to cooperate with the Attorney General's investigation, despite widespread evidence that the public comment process was corrupted.

now it's going to get interesting.

Hopefully people will realize that if 2018 goes really well, something like this could actually be passed.

this is practically a layup for dems if they just run on "restore net neutrality, legalize weed, single payer"

I think it'd be fitting to have the piss tape show up on LiveLeak someday.
