Why Obama's plan to save the Internet could actually ruin it
from The Washington Post
From Nov. 12:
On Nov. 11, President Barack Obama joined the chorus of those urging FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler to inject federal and state regulators directly into the heart of the Internet, "reclassifying" wired and mobile broadband ISPs as public utilities under a 1934 law written to control the former Bell telephone monopoly. While Obama has long supported the notoriously slippery idea of "net neutrality," this is the first time the White House has explicitly asked the FCC to take specific action, let alone to embrace the most radical and legally uncertain approach being considered by the agency — what even many advocates for net neutrality consider to be the "nuclear option."
