Net Neutrality

I’m watching this:
Real Audio Link
The first speaker after the chair was Representative Cliff Stearns. He goes on and on and is wrong, wrong, wrong.

From what I hear so far, it’s a three hour hearing, these shills for the telcos are full of it. They want content creators to pay for the privilege of residing on their networks.

I think the chairman of the hearing has it right on the money that there are so many red herrings in this debate you could fill an aquarium.
