It’s the nonsense that simply won’t go away. Oddly, that’s for a good reason. It is part of the political zeitgeist. Partisan positions at odds don’t really have to make any sense. Republicans, citing regulatory over-reach, eliminated the Democratic regulations of the internet … in a lot of pages, they, the Wheeler Democratic majority on the Federal Confusion Commission, regulated the internet under Title I … kind of like the once-upon-a-time monopolistic telephone company (you know, the one that originally called itself American Telephone & Telegraph … not today’s company run by Randall Stephenson). But today’s AT&T (originally Southwestern Bell which now owns DirecTV, U-Verse and Warner Media) isn’t a monopoly. And it wasn’t one when Wheeler’s FCC regulated the internet. Nor was it one when Ajit Pai’s FCC de-regulated it and essentially reverted regulations back to the “light touch” of Wheeler’s predecessor as Chair, Michael Powell.
