Two days before Thanksgiving, the Federal Communications Commission announced it will vote December 14 to take away our Freedom of Speech on the internet.
The FCC's three Republican presidential appointees will pass a federal rule that will force any content provider with a website or app – from AirBnb to Zillow – to pay your internet service provider big fees for the privilege of bringing their content into your device. If they don’t pay, their content slows down, and you can’t get the content you want unless you wait. And wait. Research shows if you wait just ten seconds, you just give up. It’s not so bad for content from well-funded players, but what happens when the local hardware store or the guy who blogs about your local school board gets shut out? Chalk another one up for Big Media controlling what information we are allowed to see.
There will be lawsuits to stall this action and to try to prevent it from happening. But
ONLY PRESIDENT TRUMP CAN PRESERVE A FREE AND OPEN INTERNET NOW.
Tell him: Please protect a free and open internet so small businesses can compete and so We the People are guaranteed Free Speech on the web. Preserve #NetNeutrality for Republicans and Democrats and everyone else.
