SD Senator John Thune; Time to Roll Back Net Neutrality

Trump's FCC chair shuts down celebrities pushing net neutrality conspiracy theory

Over 23 million comments were submitted to the FCC, but allegations of fraud and fake comments have destroyed the integrity of that process, enabling the FCC to ignore public feedback.

A number of studies have found that numerous comments may have been submitted by bots in an effort to influence the public record.

Content providers Apple and Google support net neutrality, taking the stance that consumers are already paying for connectivity and deserve to have a quality experience.

"Really at the heart of the argument is Internet service providers are they are utility", Martino said.

Trump's FCC chair shuts down celebrities pushing net neutrality conspiracy theory

Although this likely constitutes a violation of state law, Schneiderman asserted, the FCC has repeatedly stonewalled all efforts by the NY officials to investigate the use of stolen identities. "This is an attempt by people who want to keep the Obama Administration's heavy-handed Internet regulations to delay the vote because they realize that their effort to defeat the plan to restore Internet freedom has stalled", FCC spokeswoman Tina Pelkey said via email.

His office suspects that as many as a million of those comments are linked to stolen identities, including a 13 year old who never submitted a comment, a recently deceased woman and the office of the Attorney General's own assistant press secretary. Speaking at a conference in February, he said that two years after the rules were put it in place, "it is evident that the FCC made a mistake (which) injected tremendous uncertainty into the broadband market, and uncertainty is the enemy of growth".

The spokesperson said that Schneiderman had not identified as fake any comments that were used as part of Pai's proposal.

Schneiderman cited reports that that half a million of the comments appear to have been filed from Russian email addresses, a fact that net neutrality advocates likely hope will stoke further public interest in the often dry proceedings of the communications regulatory body.

Rose Bowl 2017: Known Info Before Final Playoff Rankings Reveal
Offensively, Georgia football averages 34.9 points and 433.6 total yards (170.1 in passing and 263.5 in rushing) per game. That's the third-longest active streak in the nation, trailing only Florida State (36) and Virginia Tech (25).

A group of senators, led by Maggie Hassan (D-NH), said the same thing in a letter sent to FCC chairman Ajit Pai. "This is a big step but given the FCC's conduct over the past eight months we remain skeptical", Schneiderman said.

"[It is] incumbent upon the FCC and all of my colleagues to stand back, figure out what's in this record before us and get to the bottom of these stolen identities", said Rosenworcel.

Last week, on Wednesday, Attorney General Schneiderman launched a new webpage for New Yorkers to check whether their identities were wrongfully used without their consent.

"Without additional information about the alleged anomalies surrounding the public record, the FCC can not conduct a thorough and fair evaluation of the public's views on this topic, and should not move forward with a vote", Hassan and 27 other senators - including Sens.

Owner Hal Steinbrenner said last month a lack of managing and coaching experience was a concern but not an insurmountable hurdle. Girardi was let go on October 26 after a decade at the helm following the team's narrow failure to advance to the World Series.

"It is clear that our process for serving the public interest is broken and I do not believe that the agency should move forward until a credible investigation is completed".

"One of the arguments is the government shouldn't get involved in the Internet", said Anthony Martino, director of Northeast Cyber Security and Forensic Center at Utica College.
