FCC Chairman May Diss Obama On Net Neutrality
FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler told industry insiders that he'll likely take a different approach to net neutrality than the one proposed by President Obama, reports the Washington Post. Obama on Monday surprised the industry by weighing in on the net neutrality debate. The President asked for a free and open internet regulated as a utility. Speaking to executives from Google, Yahoo and Etsy on Monday Wheeler said, "What you want is what everyone wants: an open Internet that doesn’t affect your business. What I've got to figure out is how to split the baby." Wheeler hopes to find a middle ground that will make both consumers and businesses happy. Wheeler's official response to Obama on Monday indicated the agency would consider the President's proposal, but reminded the President that the FCC is an independent agency and not beholden to any executive orders. The Post suggests if Wheeler does in fact take a different route, it could create discord between the White House and the FCC.

Wheeler is and always has been a sellout industry shill...
So really, as was leaked earlier this year, Wheeler wants to make it so the corporations he represents Can charge for high speed pipes, and slow down traffic for others, but ultimately all the costs and new profit streams these megacorps leeches get will be passed on to the customers, once again you and me.
