Pai ridicules the effort to preserve net neutrality
This is a video that FCC Chairman Ajit Pai put out yesterday before the agency voted today to remove net neutrality rules. I don’t know what his intent was, but it seems to me he’s ridiculing those who’ve been fighting to save net neutrality. He’s smug, sarcastic, and decidely not funny. I watched part of the hearing and he seemed a reasonable man. That impression lasted only until I saw the video. Now I can understand what might have provoked the bomb threat that caused a 15-minute recess. Pai threw oil on an already very hot issue.
The vote, by the way, was 3-2 along strict party lines. Congress could reverse the decision with a “Resolution of Disapproval,” and has 60 days to do so. It’s not likely to happen since Trump has to approve it, but there is still a tiny ray of hope.
