The guys at the Journal do a great job, but in an editorial here they kinda goofed and forgot to finish the quote, with unfortunate effect. This was just over-editing, I suspect.
I was pointing out here that while some guys exaggerated the problem, they were actually accurate in that what happened to us could easily happen to everyone if the big guys could ignore 'net neutrality.
Please note that the folks against 'net neutrality have conceded two of my basic points:
- as they admit, the big telecoms do not act in a trustworthy manner. Note their current batch of scandals, including one exec basically taking the Fifth in Congressional testimony. (this was on the news last night.)
- American values are about fairness; you play fair, work hard, and get ahead; opposing 'net neutrality attacks these values
