FCC Vote to Scuttle Net Neutrality Ignores the Public and the Public Interest

December 14, 2017; Press Release, Status Update

Donald Trump's Chairman, Ajit Pai, has recklessly ignored the tens of millions of Americans who know that affordable access to the Open Internet is essential to life in the 21st century. Today's vote is a body blow for self-expression and self-governance. And the tainted process of ignoring tens of thousands of consumer net neutrality complaints makes the FCC action illegitimate.

In total, more than 150,000 Americans spoke out in comments and petitions with the agency—an FEC rulemaking record.

FCC Vote Kneecaps Local Media by Clearing Way for Massive Mergers like Sinclair-Tribune

November 16, 2017

Even for this craven FCC majority, today’s vote to bless more media consolidation represents an awful new low. The FCC just wiped away time-tested and common sense safeguards that promote vibrant local media by ensuring voters have access to competing sources of news. By blessing consolidation this majority has ensured newsroom redundancy, meaning fewer working journalists to hold the powerful to account. And if that were not enough, let Big Broadcast get even bigger means cable customers nationwide will pay higher bills.

Silencing Science

September 19, 2014

The millions of dollars spent by fossil fuel corporations on elections, largely through dark money front groups, over the last decade is a prime example of how unlimited campaign spending can silence speech. Massive political spending by a network of fossil fuel special interest groups has not only succeeded in stopping federal legislation on climate change, but has also led many members of Congress to go silent on the issue altogether.
