House Dems Meeting to Oppose Verizon on Net Neutrality Challenge

Try to enlist more colleagues to join opposition to First Amendment legal argument

By John Eggerton -- Broadcasting & Cable, 11/28/2012 10:42:34 AM





Some House Energy and Commerce Committee Democrats and staffers are meeting Wednesday afternoon to talk about what they call the "troubling" First Amendment argument being made by Verizon in its lawsuit challenging the FCC's Open Internet Order.

They are troubled by Verizon's assertion that it has the First Amendment right to decide what goes over their networks. If the court agreed, they argue, it would undermine Congress' ability to enact communications policy.

1. Verizon can go fuck off.

 

Using Comcast, but what choice do I have? My only other Internet choice is Centurylink and they haven't fixed their line to my house yet.
