this is good news
A tendency to de-regulate, but not necessarily UNDER-regulate, AND adding transparency to the process, is very good news.
Though the article gave too much credit to Bill Clinton. Most of that de-regulation came under his 2 predecessors, Reagan and Bush I, PARTICULARLY with respect to the so-called "fairness doctrine" (which was just a way of KILLING actual free speech by over-defining it in a VERY controlling manner).
By the way, it is that old "fairness doctrine" concept that should keep privacy and freedom advocates wary of *ANY* attempt at regulating the intarwebs by gummints. We already see the 'bamboo curtain' and attempts by Russia and islamic countries to "censor the internet". So there are precedents, yeah.
All in all I'd say the FCC is moving in the right direction. Any attempt at 'net neutrality' in the future is likely to come from CONGRESS, rather than a small number of bureaucrats in secret meeetings with unknown influences thrown in for good measure.
