Bill Moyers is the left's equivalent to Beck - they're both conspiracy theory nutjobs. I'm sure Matt Damon has some interesting thoughts on the subject, why don't we quote him too?
This article is ridiculous and quite frankly a one-sided hack job. The author is either ignorant or intentionally omitting the impact of the Comcast verdict to tar and feather Baker and McDowell. Their argument's are not coming out of thin air or their "anti-regulatory" ethos - in April of this year the courts ruled "that the FCC does not have the authority to enforce net neutrality " (to quote Tech Crunch here: http://techcrunch.com/2010/04/07/fcc-comcast-decision-casts-a-shadow-on-broadband-plan/).
Do I need to say that again... maybe in all caps? The courts - who are responsible for interpreting legislation and as a check against the Executive Branch deciding if they do/do not have the authority to do things - set the precedent in April that under the existing legislation the FCC ***was not allowed***.
It's debatable if any of the schemes mentioned in the article will stand up in court, but the safest route to put something in place without risking it going down in flames during the next big court date is to wait for the legislature to properly grant the authority. If you don't like the lack of progress, why don't you take a look at the Democrats who owned the Executive and both houses of the legislature?
Seriously, if I want to read this kind of crap I'll go to DailyKOS, TYVM.
