Okay, so I've blogged about this before. I think it's super important stuff.

Common Cause has some amazing write-ups under the title of "Wolves in Sheep's Clothing". [Part 1, Part 2]

The punch line is pretty simple: telcos creating "Astroturf" to make their position against Network Neutrality look populist. I'd laugh if I wasn't so mad.

Pop quiz: can anyone else think of a big industry using Astroturf to protect it's intrenched interests despite the harms to the public at large?

[ Let me give you a hint. :-) ]

Have you contacted your politician yet?
