This is bad. Imagine paying for internet the way you pay for television. Imagine how some carriers may not even want you to be able to view sites they don’t agree with—that legal precedent is already established by corporations being allowed to claim personhood. This is a huge deal and no one is talking about it.
Donald Trump’ handpicked FCC chairman (and former cable lobbyist) could announce his plan to end Net Neutrality as soon as Wednesday.
If he succeeds, Comcast and Verizon will have free reign to slow down and censor news or websites that don’t match their political agenda, or anything else they don’t like — for any reason at all.
For the sake of our democracy, we can’t hand that kind of power to profit-seeking corporations. Please help stop this corporate power grab over what we can say and do online.
Send your emergency message to Congress right now. Don’t let Donald Trump destroy Net Neutrality.
