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.
It is imperative that we preserve the free and open access to information that net neutrality ensures.
This free flow of information is an essential part of our political process and, if anything, keeps
government overreach in check. On balance, we have more to gain from keeping the net neutral,
than we do in privatizing it.
