1. WSJ: The Internet Lives

I wrote the above thread on #NetNeutrality 13 months ago. WSJ provides an update today.

"A year ago today, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) repealed the harmful 2015 #NetNeutrality regulation dubiously titled the “Open Internet Order.”"
2. Predictably, The Washington Post, The New York Times, CNET, Ars Technica, Recode, The Verge, and advocacy groups such as Free Press and Public Knowledge forecasted apocalyptic consequences to the rollback of the regulation, mischaracterizing the repeal.
3. Leader of the Fake News pack, @CNN, declared “the end of the internet as we know it,” and other media outlets said the repeal was “gutting the rules that protect the internet,” and “that the internet has no oversight.”
4/x. Of all the anti-Trump hysterias of our age, perhaps the most absurd and extreme was the charge that last year’s repeal of an Obama-era regulation would break the Internet. A year later, the Internet is still working just fine and in many ways much better for U.S. consumers.
