Where does Wired find these nincompoops?
It must be a difficult task to write an entire article about net neutrality where nearly every “fact” or assertion is outright wrong or a gross exaggeration. I won’t refute them all point by point because I really have much better things to do with my life. Suffice it to say nearly nothing in this article resembles reality in any way, not even “and” and “the.”
This guy by the way is a shill for the telco monopoly. I looked up this motherfucker and it ain’t pretty. He wrote a paper supporting the Comcast/TWC merger. He is almost certainly in their employ though I can’t find and direct evidence of that (though that is not the way they get paid; usually it’d be 3rd-party consulting to claim they are “neutral”).
Wired has always been on the wrong side of this and similar issues. Their advertising depends on it — so I am sure that is the reason.
But if I worked for Wired I’d be incredibly embarrassed professionally to be associated with such outright and blatant shilling.
