Sunday Funday: Net Neutrality Ends Tomorrow Edition

 

Dear Leader gives America a hum job: 1 minute

Will we be able to post such videos tomorrow?

One of the Republican’s and of course Dear Leader’s targets gets a direct hit about this time tomorrow morning as net neutrality officially ends. Don’t expect dramatic changes Monday morning, but there will no doubt be some subtle changes filter in to begin with. This now puts corporations in control of most of the mass media in this country – TV, radio, newspapers, magazines and now the internet – the full gamut. Our voices are now about as diversified as voices were in the old Soviet Union when they had Pravda and Tass.

I think it was Keith Olbermann who once said that our media covers the range from the right wing to the extreme right wing.
