ATBA: Microsoft Plan Would Destroy Community TV | John Eggerton | Multichannel.com

The Advanced Television Broadcasting Alliance said Microsoft's push for reserving channels in the broadcast band for unlicensed use as a way to promote rural broadband would "destroy" hundreds of its member LPTV and translator stations.

That is because those stations are not protected in the TV station repack. They can get new channels only if there are ones left over after full powers have been accommodated. So the fewer remaining channels exist, the more LPTVs and translators will be left homeless.
 
The ATBA said its members will be able to help advance the rural broadband cause if they are allowed to find as many new homes as possible without Microsoft getting first dibs on some of them.

How fake news does real harm- TED - Stephanie Busari | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
On April 14, 2014, the terrorist organization Boko Haram kidnapped more than 200 schoolgirls from the town of Chibok, Nigeria. Around the world, the crime became epitomized by the slogan #BringBackOurGirls -- but in Nigeria, government officials called the crime a hoax, confusing and delaying efforts to rescue the girls. In this powerful talk, journalist Stephanie Busari points to the Chibok tragedy to explain the deadly danger of fake news and what we can do to stop it.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Preserving the internet is as important as any healthcare battle or Russian inquiry. The WEB connects us to each other to give us a fuller picture of each other around the world as well as local groups... it opens self directed business and creation. We need this common means of communication to remain strong and neutral..it allows us to explore our world when we can't travel to every place and to unit for common concerns whether you stand right, left or center on an issue that matters.

FCC to Move on Broadband Subsidy Items |  John Eggerton | Multichannel.com

Hardly had FCC chairman Ajit Pai ended the July 13 public meeting when he announced the agenda for the next one (Aug. 3), and it will be focused on rural broadband, having declared August to be Rural Broadband Month at the commission.

Items up for a vote will include comment on the procedures for auctioning the Connect America Fund (CAF) Phase II broadband buildout subsidy money that incumbents did not apply for—some potential $2 billion—to competitors like cable broadband providers.

The FCC has been migrating its basic telecom subsidies from phone to the new baseline communications connection—broadband. Pai said that the CAF Phase II auction is on track for 2018.

How to Keep the Fight for Net Neutrality Going

How to Keep the Fight for Net Neutrality Going | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
The Day of Action gave the fight for net neutrality its spotlight moment. But it shouldn't end here.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Here is part of plan to continue fighting for a final law that protects the internet neutrality and your own expressive voice online. If the FCC does not listen to the millions that increasingly fight to ensure the internet continues to thrive we will need to take it to the next level and that is we need congress to make this law not just too easy to change regulations. Be aware that telecoms and ISPs fund the state houses and now the national house and stack the deck in their favor through the Bill Mill ALEC!

Facebook, Google, Netflix and others are part of Wednesday's net neutrality “day of action."
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Here is an idea. The Internet providers need to sale out the isp part of their business and let other more he nest and consumer fair competitors that just st want to be our internet communication common carriers but that part out. AT&T obviously not wanting to satisfy customers being an Internet provider or phone company any longer could then buy more movies and TV and let sponsors pay them if they are any good at that... maybe we will pay them to subscribe if we choose and they are good at it. The hundreds of thousands they pay to be ALEC (ALEC Exposed) state corporate chairs and other money they spend buying politicians could be spent to improve their business or pay investors. Your payments could help real Internet and phone only companies improve services by not throwing millions from our payments annually corrupt policy makers and the FCC! We could also not allow them to have charters for communications if they want to be entertainment and advertisers.

Facebook’s Secret Censorship Rules Protect White Men from Hate Speech But Not Black Children | Julia Angwin | ProPublica.org

Facebook’s Secret Censorship Rules Protect White Men from Hate Speech But Not Black Children | Julia Angwin | ProPublica.org | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

In the wake of a terrorist attack in London earlier this month, a U.S. congressman wrote a Facebook post in which he called for the slaughter of “radicalized” Muslims. “Hunt them, identify them, and kill them,” declared U.S. Rep. Clay Higgins, a Louisiana Republican. “Kill them all. For the sake of all that is good and righteous. Kill them all.”

Higgins’ plea for violent revenge went untouched by Facebook workers who scour the social network deleting offensive speech.

But a May posting on Facebook by Boston poet and Black Lives Matter activist Didi Delgado drew a different response.

“All white people are racist. Start from this reference point, or you’ve already failed,” Delgado wrote. The post was removed and her Facebook account was disabled for seven days.

A trove of internal documents reviewed by ProPublica sheds new light on the secret guidelines that Facebook’s censors use to distinguish between hate speech and legitimate political expression. The documents reveal the rationale behind seemingly inconsistent decisions. For instance, Higgins’ incitement to violence passed muster because it targeted a specific sub-group of Muslims — those that are “radicalized” — while Delgado’s post was deleted for attacking whites in general.
