Before the FCC decided to pursue Net Neutrality protections, Fox News Channel's Glenn Beck
warned his audience that the government was "trying to take over the media." Beck later said that Net
Neutrality would "wildly affect your life and free speech" by forcing a "Marxist utopia" on the Internet.
"The Internet holds incredible potential to resurrect a vibrant industry of independent creators with
free access to, and distribution of, democratic â?? with a small 'd' â?? content... There is still time to
protect the rights of content producers and consumers. We need to establish clear Net Neutrality
rules to ensure that the Internet remains a level playing field for all."
