Net Neutrality is Dead
well, how about that...

The US Senate votes in favor of restoring the FCC's net-neutrality rules


....but it's not all cyber unicorns and Keanu-Neo's yet

Despite the Senate's vote, the resolution faces a dubious future, because it still needs to pass the House of Representatives and be signed by President Donald Trump.

Yeah, I'm not gonna hold my breath for this.

Still, it's encouraging, and getting it done through proper legislative channels would be a hell of a lot better and more final than getting it by presidential whim.

Quote:FCC Emails Show Agency Spread Lies to Bolster Dubious DDoS Attack Claims

As it wrestled with accusations about a fake cyberattack last spring, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) purposely misled several news organizations, choosing to feed journalists false information, while at the same time discouraging them from challenging the agency’s official story.
Internal emails reviewed by Gizmodo lay bare the agency’s efforts to counter rife speculation that senior officials manufactured a cyberattack, allegedly to explain away technical problems plaguing the FCC’s comment system amid its high-profile collection of public comments on a controversial and since-passed proposal to overturn federal net neutrality rules.
The FCC has been unwilling or unable to produce any evidence an attack occurred—not to the reporters who’ve requested and even sued over it, and not to U.S. lawmakers who’ve demanded to see it. Instead, the agency conducted a quiet campaign to bolster its cyberattack story with the aid of friendly and easily duped reporters, chiefly by spreading word of an earlier cyberattack that its own security staff say never happened.
