Al Franken's Warning on Net Neutrality

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 4 years ago

An anonymous reader writes "Democratic Sen. Al Franken weighed in on Net Neutrality over the weekend at the Netroots Nation conference of liberal activists in Las Vegas, calling it "the First Amendment issue of our time" and warning against Republican plans for less regulation.

More from a blog post on CBSNews.com:

"Speculating on what the Internet could morph into under the Repbulicans' preferred lack of regulation, Franken asked the audience of bloggers how long it would take before the Fox News website loads significantly more quickly than the Daily Kos website.

"If you want to protect the free flow of information in this country, you have to help me fight this," he said.""
