The Net Neutrality Coup

Wall St. Journal:  “The Federal Communications Commission’s new ‘net neutrality’ rules, passed on a partisan 3-2 vote . . . represent a huge win for a slick lobbying campaign run by liberal activist groups and foundations. The losers are likely to be consumers who will see innovation and investment chilled by regulations that treat the Internet like a public utility.  There’s little evidence the public is demanding these rules . . . . Over 300 House and Senate members have signed a letter opposing FCC Internet regulation, and there will undoubtedly be even less support in the next Congress.”
