An open internet is being threatened by the Trump administration: According to an article by the media-advocacy organization Free Press, the new chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, Ajit Pai, “vigorously opposed rules [the FCC] adopted to protect the rights of internet users” when Pai worked at the FCC under Obama.

But one at-risk issue hasn’t been making headlines in the same way: net neutrality—the principle that internet service providers and governments regulating the internet should treat all data on the internet equally, without favoring or blocking particular products or websites.

Corporate Media Counting Cadence to Fascism, Glen Ford, Black Agenda Report

  • https://blackagendareport.com/sites/default/files/styles/image-400x300/public/Glen_Spying.jpeg?itok=oj8HD4cgThe ruling class/War Party/corporate media campaign for regime change in Washington has moments of pure silliness, with grown men claiming that U.S. presidents don’t have the power to wiretap people. Someone should have informed Dr. Martin Luther King. But, if self-described “progressives” can believe that the CIA is a benign, democratic institution, they can believe anything. “The destabilization of the U.S. bourgeois state is a project, not of the Kremlin, but of multinational and finance capital headquartered in the U.S.”

Glen Ford, Black Agenda Report 

https://blackagendareport.com/sites/default/files/styles/image-400x300/public/Glen_Spying.jpeg?itok=oj8HD4cgWed, 03/08/2017 | When Donald Trump charged that President Obama wiretapped the Republican campaign in the weeks after the November election, the bulk of corporate media chose to treat the allegation as another example of Trump’s “alternative facts.” They trotted out folks like Ben Rhodes, a former deputy National Security Advisor to Obama, who dismissed the charge as ridiculous. "No President can order a wiretap,” Rhodes huffed.

This may be technically true, but it’s an objective lie. Presidents can cause anybody to be spied upon, simply by indicating a desire to see it happen. In 1963, the Kennedy brothers -- formally acting through Bobby Kennedy’s office as Attorney General -- gave FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover permission to tap Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s phones and bug his home and offices. Hoover’s goal, according to a 2008 CNN “Black in America” report, was to “neutralize King as an effective Negro leader.” The Bureau didn’t find evidence that King was under “communist influence,” but did discover “embarrassing details about King's sex life,” which the FBI used to encourage King to kill himself. When he declined to take his own life, someone else did the job.

  • Just weeks ago, mainstream U.S. media decried “fake news” and backed a blacklist of independent news sites over “Russian propaganda.” Now, under fire from President Trump, the MSM loves a free press.
