The 4th Estate is the enemy of the people

Old news dude, The Fourth Estate is Dead. Death of The Fourth Estate. An old term that does not even describe today's brand of corporate media.

"Because our uninformed electorate craves the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought, today’s affirmation and checkbook journalists thrive and flourish.

The days of Bill Paley long gone, today’s media moguls prefer theatre to truth."

I've turned off MSN, CNN, Fox, for years. If I want some semblance of activism or political news there's stuff like Democracy Now or The Real News network to watch online.

It's within the free speech rights of Comcast to selectively block mentions of 'Mueller' while pushing articles from Fox News and Info Wars. Doesn't seem too far fetched in the current political environment.
The 4th Estate is the enemy of the people, if you don't believe me just ask the very stable genius.
Other enemies of the people include affordable health care and education.

The gop don't want healthy educated deplorables.

It's most likely they are doing this because by having the current ruling, States can enact their own Net Neutrality rules bypassing FCC corruption.

you would not hear of that party again in our political history.....and they are stupid. Dwight D. Eisenhower

there is obviously some reason he is doing this, even though it is overturned on the fcc level. perhaps some precedent set in this case is looked at by the fcc/isp's as dangerous to their current "fuck the internet" strategy, and they are trying to cover their bases for future arguments/cases that may try and reinstate the net neutrality rules.

lol the Trump Admin can fuck right off.

As the article says, it's largely moot, since the FCC has already dropped those rules.

But in general, people -- like Kavanuagh -- who think our ISPs should have First Amendment rights to withhold content are insane. How do people like Timmeh, who threw a fit over Facebook not reposting Infowars, think it's okay for Comcast or Spectrum to just block access entirely?
