THEY WANT TO TAKE AWAY OPEN-ACCESS TO THE INTERNET!
Who are “They”?
The 5 major corporate media companies control over 90% of TV and radio stations and newspapers. They want to control Internet content as well.
Why do “they” want to do this?
To make a ton of money and to promote political agendas which censor opposing points of view.
What is protecting citizens from “them” now?
“Net-neutrality”. This means everything on the Internet is equally accessible and the Internet should be a place where many ideas compete equally with big money. In 2015, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) put into place protections to ensure that service providers could not be allowed to discriminate against content without a court order. The Trump Administration wants to do away with this protection.
How can “they” do this?
The FCC has the power to change or discard the rules governing the Internet.
What can we do?
Public hearings and correspondence can be used to stop the process of destroying the open-Internet. You may write the FCC at: Federal Communications Commission, Washington, D.C. 20554 about the Friends of Community Media letter –
