FCC Update

The most asinine piece of news I've seen lately is regarding the U.S. Federal Communications Commission's new web site. BIG headline:

Jail Time?

"Jail Time for Wall Street Culprits?"

Movie director, Charles Ferguson, who won an Academy Award for his documentary "Inside Job" - which looked at the cause and scope of the recent economic crash - bemoaned the lack of jail time for the primary offenders during his Academy Award acceptance speech.

White House Chief of Staff, Bill Daley, was interviewed on NBC's "Meet the Press." Daley refused to say whether "it is illegitimate or not" for the people to demand jail time for the culprits of the crash. "Politicians should not get involved. Producers, directors can do that. But politicians should not get involved."

Is this guy for real?

Please Tell Your Senators!

I am taking the liberty of paraphrasing an email sent out by SaveTheInternet.com ... Please send a copy to your own email lists!

On February 17, 2011, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to block the Federal Communications Commission from protecting our right to access an open Internet. If successful, the move would give phone and cable companies absolute, unrestricted power over the internet.

In the U.S. Senate, Senators Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas), Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) and John Ensign (R-Nevada) have introduced a "resolution of disapproval" that would strip the FCC of its authority to protect our right to free speech online. Both of these moves come at a time when phone and cable giants are already restricting our ability to connect with others and share information.2

We can stop the resolution in the Senate by getting 51 members to stand with us for online freedom. Tell your senators - defend our right to free speech online!

A House vote is on the books. It's now up to the Senate. If it doesn't stop this resolution, the FCC would be barred from enforcing its Net Neutrality rule, and from acting in any way to protect Internet users against corporate abuses by the largest internet service providers.

Imagine a world where these companies are allowed to do anything they want, ban any speech they don't like, charge anything they can get away with, hold innovation hostage to their profit margins and make online business owners pay to have their web sites display.

If this resolution passes, there's nothing anyone could do about it.

The resolution is filibuster-proof. We need at least 51 senators to beat it. PLEASE contact YOUR senators here:
