Stop the FCC Power Grab of the InternetSubmitted by freemedialive.com on Sun, 05/09/2010 - 01:35
We all need to be aware there is a campaign to pressure the FCC to regulate the internet. Stop the liberal power grab for internet control. Left wingers are lobbying the FCC to regulate internet service providers. We need to hit back by calling the FCC directly at 202-418-1000 or email@example.com.
This post explains the strategy the left is using to work around a recent court ruling that came down against the FCC regulating the internet. Call the number below to urge the FCC not to reclasify broadband as a Title II service. Freedom means not allowing the government to regulate the internet, regardless of the doublespeak that they are supporting internet freedom with these rules regulating internet providers.

"An appeals court ruled in April that the FCC lacked authority to ensure an open, affordable, and accessible Internet because of a decision it made during the Bush-era to classify broadband as a title I service instead of a title II service- with dire consequences for people of color and the poor. The Obama FCC can now fix this bad history by simply reclasifying broadband. According to the Washington Post, however, Genachowski intends to do nothing. Contact FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski at 202-418-1000 or firstname.lastname@example.org, and Commissioner Mignon Clyburn at 202-418-2100 or email@example.com, and urge them to reclassify broadband as a Title II service.
