How The Emerging Two Tier Internet System Squares With Obama's Past Views

Barack Obama
My favorite Republican president.


How the approach contrasts with President Obama's own past views. "Obama in 2007 explicitly rejected the possibility that 'gatekeepers' someday could 'charge different rates to different websites'...Obama's comment now seems at odds with the so-called fast lanes that might result from the open Internet proposal from FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler. But the president still 'strongly supports' net neutrality, a White House spokesman stressed Thursday, while declining to comment on the specifics of Wheeler's plan. Obama hadn't yet seen the text, added the aide, who also pointed to the fact that the FCC is an independent agency."Tony Romm in Politico.


Alan: Thanks to friend Chuck Holton for the great line in Obama's caption.
