A telephone CALL IN program BELOW discusses POSSIBILITY of "CABLIZATION" (cannibalization, balkanization) of OPEN and EQUAL INTERNET CONTENT, "net neutrality," by, of, and, for, PRIVATE service providers as a consequence of a recent NAZI occupied US SUPREME COURT decision.
Program link below BUT listen to it first OR read what I write underneath and return to it later.
As mentioned BRIEFLY by FORMER FCC member Copps, above, POWERFUL SENATOR ROCKEFELLER sits on numerous Congressional Committees listed below, including Committee named ABOVE, and, significantly, PREVIOUS Senate Intelligence Chair.
NOT ALL SENATORS, CONGRESSPEOPLE, REPRESENTATIVES, ARE CREATED EQUAL in terms of CLOUT.
Some being hired help, like CIA TOY BOY OBOOMA, for example, for THOSE interests represented DIRECTLY ABOVE/BELOW:
Next, EXCERPT regarding another RECENT FCC APPOINTMENT, LINK UNDERNEATH:
"...He comes to the FCC with plenty of public policy experience. In addition to his role on the UMBC faculty, Brennan served as a senior economist for the White House Council of Economic Advisers from 1996-1997 and in 2003-2005 served as a staff consultant to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission...
...Johnson joins the FCC from the Senate Intelligence Committee, where he worked on a number of the committee's cybersecurity efforts and served as the committee's lead staffer on financial intelligence issues.During his tenure at the Senate Intelligence Committee, he was the designated counsel for former Intelligence Committee Chairman and present Commerce Committee Chairman Senator John D. Rockefeller IV and was staff lead for Senator Rockefeller's cybersecurity legislation and related stakeholder outreach. In addition, Johnson served as Senator Rockefeller's counsel for defense, foreign policy and international trade..."
Former FCC Chair Copps, above, advocates important and obvious aspects about OPEN internet access and content, along with DISGUSTING, REVOLTING, PRIVATIZED, Cable TV, as pejorative term Cablization implies.
But, WHY does Copps bother advocating for open and equal internet content access while ignoring preceding PRIVATE interests like NAZI ROCKEFELLER who sits on his/their Committee(s) and OWN most everything??
So, as day follows night, like Cable TV with their hundreds, thousands, of redundant, CRAPPY, STATIONS, what other outcome does Copps expect regarding internet content, service??
These are proverbial Foxes guarding a Hen House.
As ONE caller indicates, with so much presumed cable TV choice, FOR WHICH PEOPLE PAY, she MUST resort to other means for INFORMATION, that being ONE of THE MAIN reasons INTERNET exists.
PRIVATELY OWNED CONGLOMERATE CABLE TV is a "VAST WASTELAND" OF RESOURCE, MONEY, ENERGY, providing mostly INTELLECTUAL, TOXIC, JUNK FOOD, COMMERCIAL, SANITIZED, PROGRAMMING, PROPAGANDA, DIVERSION, ENTERTAINMENT, ETC.
ALSO mentioned by a person who telephoned into the program, our internet system initially was created WITH and BY TAXPAYER MONIES, but, subsequently, PRIVATELY APPROPRIATED for COMMERCIAL PROFIT!!
TV AND INTERNET SERVICES MUST BE RESTORED AS A PUBLIC UTILITY FOR WHICH ANY PRIVATE INTEREST PAYS TO UTILIZE, NOT OTHER WAY AROUND!!
TV IS, WAS, CAN, and SHOULD BE AN EDUCATIONAL ADJUNCT, APPENDAGE, and, RESOURCE TOOL, FOR ALL!!
Until and unless ABOVE OWNERSHIP SYSTEM CHANGES, outcomes are PREDICTABLY SHOCKING and AWE-FUL, with further INTELLECTUAL DEGRADATION, DETERIORATION, revisionist history, sanitized content, commercial propaganda, lowest possible common denominator, advertising, sensational titillation, etc.
But, Copps NEVER DIRECTLY CHALLENGES THE UNDERLYING, BASIC, FUNDAMENTAL, CONTRADICTION OF PRIVATE VERSUS PUBLIC OWNERSHIP as ANTITHESIS, ANTIDOTE.
Copps appropriately laments SYMPTOMS, but, argues for its/their CONTAINMENT, CONTROL, REGULATION, NEVER outright elimination, eradication, of their underlying, root, CAUSE.
And, that's why "they" ALLOW Copps to speak on their CABLE TV show and NOT someone else advocating ABOVE!!
