FCC Blocks Law Enforcement Inquiry Into Fake Neutrality Comments

Critics have charged that the Federal Communications Commission failed to investigate or hinder bogus comments because the fraud undermined trust in the validity of the comment process, helping to downplay and discredit the massive genuine opposition to the FCC’s plan. If the fake comments were the work of an ISP-tied think tank or policy organization (such activity is certainly historically within their wheelhouse), the industry-cozy FCC also likely has a vested interest in not aiding anybody trying to document such a connection. – Karl Bode, DSL Reports http://ift.tt/2AFVBKD
