FCC finally released its Net Neutraility Regulations

Print Post  
After more than a month of heated debate between regulators, lawmakers, companies and interest groups, the FCC on Thursday finally released the
Internet regulations the agency voted to adopt two weeks ago.

Under the plan, the FCC will regulate Internet service providers (ISPs) under a modernized interpretation of Title II of the 1996 Telecommunications Act a regulatory proposal inspired by those used to break up telephone monopolies in the 1930s.

Under Wheelers 21st century Title II, the FCC will regulate ISPs essentially as public utilities, and bar them from segregating or blocking Internet content, establishing fast and slow lanes for web traffic or requiring Internet content creators to set up special deals and pay higher prices for acceptable transmission speeds.

Report: Soros-Funded Group Cited 46 Times in FCC Rules

New Internet regulations released Thursday by the Federal Communications Commission include 46 references to the Free Press, a group funded by liberal billionaire George Soros, the Daily Caller reported.

The FCC release of the regulations, more than 300 pages in length, came two weeks after the commission approved them on a party-line 3-2 vote with Democrats voting in favor and Republicans in opposition.

Supporters said they were necessary in order to "level the playing field" protecting small businesses and middle-income households against invidious discrimination from Internet service providers.

Critics countered that regulations enacted after an intense lobbying campaign by the Obama administration directed at FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler will effectively turn the Internet into a public utility and that intrusive government control will stifle innovation.

One group that has long advocated "leveling the playing field" when it comes to the Internet is Free Press, a group founded in 2003.

In total, the FCC cited pro-net neutrality arguments by Free Press 46 times in its decision. The group received $2.2 million in donations from Soros' Open Society Foundations and $3.9 million from the Ford Foundation, according to the Daily Caller.

A co-founder of Free Press and currently on its board of directors is Robert McChesney, a professor of communications at the University of Illinois. McChesney, according to the Daily Caller, supports a "radical" agenda aimed at completely changing the way the media operate in the United States.

"In the end, there is no real answer but to remove brick by brick the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles," McChesney wrote in a 2009 essay.

"Only government can implement policies and subsidies to provide an institutional framework for quality journalism," he said.

McChesney has declared that the news "is not a commercial product. It is a public good, necessary for a self-governing society."

Once people accept this premise, "we can talk about the kind of media policies and subsidies we want," he reportedly said.
