Clearing Up Net Neutrality, With BULLSHIT!
FreedomWorks responds to President Obama’s recent statement encouraging the FCC to adopt stricter rules on Net Neutrality.
The above video is an anti-Net Neutrality statement from the Koch funded, Tea Party aligned FreedomWorks. In it, Iris Somberg, FreedomWorks Communication Coordinator (i.e. Director of Bullshit) claims that net neutrality hurts competition because it gives, “The same speed, the same prices, the same access,” to all content. How is this anti-competative you might ask because your not an idiot? Well according to Somberg, it forces smaller websites to somehow subsidize bigger websites by forcing them to pay for bandwidth they don’t need. You may notice that this claim is complete and utter bull crap.
Really, she actually claims that having providers treat all web traffic the same benefits bigger companies at the expense of smaller companies. This is an Orwellian inversion of the truth. Net neutrality enhances competition and innovation for all by providing a level playing field. Seriously, do these people even believe their own bullshit?
