That may be true. But it’s not their intentions that matter. It’s their capabilities.

A benevolent dictator is still a dictator. I boggles my mind that the FCC seems intent to just plow ahead without regard for the massive opposition to these changes. Maybe I get my news from the wrong sources, but I can’t seem to find any arguments on how this would help the US. And as far as intentions and abilities go, when it comes to big media, I trust neither.
