Net Neutrality update

Now is our chance to prove that this time, the FCC got it right. We’re fighting back every day: We’re defending the Net Neutrality rules in court, meeting with members of Congress and challenging industry lies whenever and wherever they pop up.

http://www.popularresistance.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Net-neutrality-meme-e1398433124309.jpgNovember 30, 2015 | This year’s Net Neutrality win was an enormous victory for the Internet — but the fight isn’t over yet.

The cable industry is suing the FCC in an attempt to gut the agency’s historic open Internet rules. On Dec. 4, the court will hear oral arguments. The case is even in front of one of the same judges who wrote the decision last year, tossing out the agency's last attempt at Net Neutrality because the FCC picked the wrong legal theories.

In the meantime, Republicans in Congress are trying to attach dangerous riders to must-pass budget legislation that would effectively prevent the agency from enforcing the Net Neutrality rules.

Now is our chance to prove that this time, the FCC got it right. We’re fighting back every day: We’re defending the Net Neutrality rules in court, meeting with members of Congress and challenging industry lies whenever and wherever they pop up.

‘Spotlight’ Celebrates Heroes of Investigative Reporting — and Democracy

  • ”In a recent interview at Salon, Tom McCarthy said that (investigative journalism) is, “so essential to a free and healthy press in our country. The fact that it is eroding should really be a great alarm to people, as much as the ice caps are eroding. We should be really a bit worried about the state of journalism, and not just for the journalists but for us, because that’s who it will impact most.”

November 25, 2015 | Long before I ever set foot in an actual, working newsroom, I was a sucker for movies and TV shows about journalism and reporters: the snappy dialogue, the nose for a scoop, the determination to get at the truth and expose the bad guys.

I never miss Citizen Kane, All the President’s Men or His Girl Friday (the great, screwball remake of that classic play, The Front Page). And when I entered the world of journalism for real, briefly working as a freelance feature writer for a now-deceased, great metropolitan newspaper and then for years in television news and public affairs, I discovered that there really were people in the business as funny, dedicated and talented as the characters on film (some stinkers, too, but that’s for my future, sure-to-go-straight-to-remaindered memoir).

Michael Winship is the Emmy Award-winning senior writer of Moyers & Company and BillMoyers.com, and a former senior writing fellow at the policy and advocacy group Demos.

He's not always right, but Maher's posing provocative questions, and answering them with intelligence, consistency.

Petition | Tell NYT to Tell the Truth About Israeli Oppression of Palestinians

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/evergreenedigest.org/files/Take%20Action%20banner.jpg

 

  • The Times' headlines consistently frame Israel as the victim, completely misrepresenting an uprising which is a response to decades of displacement, occupation and repression.
  • http://movetoamend.org/sites/default/files/sign-btn.png Unless we put pressure on the New York Times to report what is actually happening, the story of Palestinians struggling for freedom will be obscured in the paper of record. Can you sign our petition to the Public Editor of the NYT now?
  • American Politicians' Shameful Pandering to Israel

Thanks to Evergreene Digest reader/contributor Mary Eve Thomas for this contribution. 

November 13, 2015 | No media organization is more influential in shaping the way American policymakers and news outlets think about Israel and Palestine than the New York Times.

But with some notable exceptions, the Times has done a shamefully poor job of including the historical and political context readers need to understand the roots of the current uprising.
