The Humanist Report - FCC's Ajit Pai Admits Public Outcry Won't Change His Mind on Net Neutrality
Quote:
Published on Aug 1, 2017

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai recently implied that overwhelming public outcry won’t change his mind when it comes to net neutrality. In fact, he stated only economic analyses that prove there are benefits to keeping net neutrality would stop him from gutting net neutrality; however, when provided with said data, he dismisses it and instead attacks the source. So Ajit Pai and his Republican colleague (FCC Commissioner Michael O’Reilly) know what Americans prefer, but don’t care. They’re moving forward with their repeal of net neutrality anyway.
