From Art Brodsky in the Huff Post:
Most congressional Republicans oppose the idea of giving consumers freedom on the Internet. They take shelter in their anti-government, anti-regulation rhetoric, preferring to allow Internet freedom to apply to the corporations which own the networks connecting the Internet to consumers, rather than to consumers themselves. There could, of course, be a larger discussion about the meaning of “conservative” and Republican, and whether the two are synonymous.
It’s nice to see comprehensive coverage of this issue on the front page of the Huff Post this week.
I think that I’m in favor of more (Ted Stevens) conservatives making ludicrous claims about the net and net neutrality, because such comments and positions give more publicity to the importance of protecting the rights of all internet users. In other words, democratic candidates will have a reason to fight on these issues because they’ve been aired publicly.
