Glenn Beck Pushes for Higher Consumer Internet Bills, Bigger Corporate Profits.

Americans for Prosperity’s Phil Kerpen, taking on net neutrality, completely mis-characterizes what net neutrality means and why opposing it will cost Americans a lot of their hard earned money.

But these guys are conservative, they wouldn't do that, right? Just like opposing health care reform, which will end up costing most of us twice as much as does now in a few years, conservatives would go to the wall to protect profits. Corporate bottom lines blindly get an exemption to rob you blind. According to Think Progress:

Beck also appears to have no idea what net neutrality actually means. Science Progress aptly explained it last year: At the most basic level, net neutrality is the principle that Internet users should be in control of what content they view and what applications they use on the Internet; all content on the Internet is equally accessible, and once a person pays for access to the Internet, they alone get to choose how they use it. This means that providers should not be allowed to block access to certain sites or applications, or charge different customers different amounts for services

Watching Beck is like watching sequels to the movie Network, if Howard Beil didn't die, and looked like our favorite Fox News loon.
