Oops! Lobby group forgets to fill in blanks of apparent form letter to FCC
As reported last week, lobbying ahead of the FCC's vote on a net neutrality proposal was fierce. We looked into AT&T's push against the move for new rules.
But along with the intensity was some clumsiness. Take a look at this Broadband DSL story that shows a letter from a senior citizens organization opposed to open-Internet access rules forgot to fill in some of the blanks of what appeared to be a form letter on the issue.
If the lobbying ahead of last week's vote on commencing a rule-making process was fierce, it will only gather momentum as the agency begins to make the sausage on this issue. FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski has proposed for stronger and broader rules that would prohibit Internet access providers from blocking or prioritizing certain content on the Web. The public has four months to weigh in at the agency's Web site.
