'If you want to kill your dog, accuse him of having rabies"
FCC's proposal has nothing to do with the public interest: it's all about money, especially money going to politicians to purposely pay for their (re)election. How much give cable companies to politicians?
The US political system is deeply flawed because mostly based on the more money someone can get 'given' by private entities (hoping nothing in return, of course... ROTFL), the higher chance (s)he has to be elected. It explains largely why the US is a plutocracy rather than a democracy.
