Net Neutrality Links
I’m adding this link to the Net Neutrality Page.
YouÃ¢â¬â¢ve got to hand it to FCC General Counsel Sam Feder. His opinion that supposedly Ã¢â¬ÅclearsÃ¢â¬Â Commissioner Robert McDowell to participate in the AT&T takeover of BellSouth probably wasnÃ¢â¬â¢t what Chairman Kevin Martin had in mind.
The idea of the exercise was to put pressure on McDowell to jump into, presumably on the side of AT&T, and force Commissioners Michael Copps and Jonathan Adelstein into a corner.
[ . . . ]
FederÃ¢â¬â¢s opinion said nothing that should cause the Commissioner to change his view. The opinion made a tepid case at best for Commissioner McDowell to participate. Feder seemed to go out of his way to stress that it was McDowellÃ¢â¬â¢s decision to participate. The Feder memo said it was a Ã¢â¬Åvery, very close callÃ¢â¬Â whether McDowell should take part, and that reasonable parties could disagree on a decision.
