First Amendment on drugs

The FCC's proposed "Net Neutrality" rules put the FCC in control of internet content. The newspaper equivalent would be the federal government deciding that it needs to monitor and regulate what newspapers print - from front page to advertising circular

The logic of proponents of these rules is loosely modeled on the "fairness doctrine" for broadcasting, which is, of course, anything but fair.

This post is an excellent treatment of the law, history and philosophical and political heritage of the "Net Neutralistas".

Net Neutrality - using the first amendment to control free speech.
