People across the country are beginning to understand what is at stake with preserving net neutrality. The July 24, 2006 edition of American Catholic Radio has an interview with Michael Copps, commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission starting roughly at the 20 minute mark. He talks about the need to avoid Internet toll booths and how the loss of network neutrality would hurt minority non-commercial voices including Catholic media. Also some good discussion of how media consolidation has made it harder to hear local voices and new music.
Net Neutrality is sometimes presented as a liberal issue, but the reality is that it cuts across ideology, and based on the above interview, religious lines as well.
