On Monday February 17 2014, the Diane Rehm show on National Public Radio tackled the proposed Comcast + Time Warner Cable merger in a segment entitled What A Proposed Cable Mega-Merger Might Mean For Consumers. The proposed new entity would have approximately 30 percent of all national pay television subscribers and also about a third of all broadband Internet subscribers. Some consumer advocates say that if the merger is approved, cable TV bills will go up and the new company will have too much control over program content, high speed Internet access and price. Diane’s guests were Berin Szoka President, TechFreedom; Susan Crawford Visiting Professor, Harvard’s Kennedy School and Harvard Law School; and Gautham Nagesh, reporter, The Wall Street Journal.

Verizon vs #FCC oral arguments, #TheInternetMustGo mockumentary, WU, Lessig, Crawford @reddit_AMA #netneutrality
On September 9 2013, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals hears oral arguments in Verizon v. FCC. The court is being asked to decide whether Internet access providers (Comcast, Verizon) should be subject to the FCC’s “Open Internet” rules adopted in December 2010. Verizon argues that the FCC doesn’t have statutory authority to regulate Internet access, because the Commission has labeled Internet access an unregulated “information service” rather than a regulated common carriage service under the Telecommunications Act of 1996. It will also argue that Verizon is a First Amendment speaker that should have “editorial discretion” over Internet traffic that passes through its wires. A recording of the oral argument is available online today here.
Also on September 9, to coincide, over a dozen organizations including Free Press, Public Knowledge, ColorOfChange, Center for Media Justice, and Future of Music Coalition joined in launching the film.The Internet Must Go, a short online mockumentary using Colbert-style interviews with Internet luminaries to expose the absurdity of familiar arguments against net neutrality.
