Cable Industry Taking Control of the Net

GemFire Re:Once you give it to Americans-it's a Right (686 comments)

Actually, that is not true. When advertisements first started being run on the radio - which had formerly been music and news only, people complained and I believe they even began a court battle that would have protected the public's right to have what they wanted to hear on the radio stations since those stations used public airwaves.

Obviously, you can easily see/hear how successful they were. All that has to happen is to eliminate all reasonable alternatives and the cable companies will have what they want. Sheeplike Americans, most likely, will do little more than complain amongst themselves and finally accept the limits.
