Posted by: thepinetree on 01/17/2018 08:48 PM
Washington, DC...U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) today spoke on the Senate floor warning of the danger to democracy around the world posed by political leaders denying shared truths and reflexively dismissing facts as “fake news”: “2017 was a year which saw the truth – objective, empirical, evidence-based truth – more battered and abused than any other in the history of our country, at the hands of the most powerful figure in our government.

The destructive effect of this kind of behavior on our democracy cannot be overstated.

Net neutrality allows consumers to access online content without any interference by an internet service provider (ISP).
