Opponents say Pai is working for the rich and powerful and leaving the rest of us behind.

The FCC sabotaged its own Net Neutrality public comments process and distorted the factsCompiled by David Culver, Ed., Evergreene Digest

  • Part 1:  The FCC sabotaged its own public comments process.
    • Congress needs to stop them from voting to kill net neutrality on December 14
  • Part 2: Fight for the Future statement on Ajit Pai’s ridiculous speech
    • Pai’s distortion of the facts here can only be described as Orwellian. He’s citing free speech as his reason for gutting free speech protections.
