Repeal, or get replaced.

That’s the message a broad group of internet activists wants to send to lawmakers as they fight to reinstate net neutrality rules the Federal Communications Commission overturned in a contentious vote last month.

On Wednesday, the group Fight for the Future launched an all-out campaign urging Congress to reverse the FCC ruling via the Congressional Review Act, or face a drubbing in November’s elections.

Their leverage?

The US Department of Justice filed an antitrust lawsuit against AT&T opposing the upcoming merger with Time Warner. The filing was surprising since it came so late in the merger process with the proposed merger on the table for much of 2017.

There are those saying that the DOJ objections are political, but the DOJ objections are all legitimate. Some of the major concerns of the DOJ include:

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
I’m wondering if this Russia business is going to be used to increase spying on Americans and tapping into us more than Russians. Making Americans better informed on the influence of media and how it can be corrupted is the best solutions. My mother always said if you don’t want people talking about what your doing... then don’t give them anything to talk about. Hillary was a poor candidate with much to challenge. The American media giving both her and Trump a mother-load of free constant mention even before the entered the race did far more to upend the election than Russia could even dream of doing. The GOP three decades of breeding fear, hate and envy did not help either!!

CA: SoCalGas Begins Fiber Installation for Real-time Pipeline Monitoring | Broadband Communities News

Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas), a natural gas distribution utility, announced it has broken ground on a fiber optic cable installation that will allow the company to monitor the condition of its high-pressure transmission pipelines in real-time. The fiber optic technology is being installed along a new, seven-mile section of natural gas pipeline in Bakersfield, California, and will serve as an early warning system to detect unauthorized construction work that could damage the pipeline and changes in pressure in the line that could indicate a leak. Photos of the technology from today’s installation are available here.

“SoCalGas is committed to modernizing our infrastructure to enhance safety for our customers and reduce our carbon footprint,” said Deanna Haines, director of gas engineering for SoCalGas. “This technology provides our engineers with a critical early warning system that can prevent damage to our lines and help us mitigate leaks more quickly.”

“Having real-time information on the status of high-pressure pipelines is critical in the early detection of a potential problem,” said Brian Marshall, Kern County Fire Chief. “Firefighters will be able to respond quickly to an emergency and work with SoCal Gas to stop the problem from escalating."

Russian hacker claims he can prove he hacked DNC | Morgan Chalfant | TheHill.com | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

A jailed Russian hacker who claims he was ordered by Russian intelligence to hack into Democratic National Committee (DNC) networks says he can prove he was behind the breach.

Konstantin Kozlovsky, who has been jailed on cyber fraud charges in Russia, told independent Russian network TV Rain in a recent interview that he left a file on the DNC network containing markers to prove he had been there.

Specifically, Kozlovsky said he left a .dat file with his passport number and the number of his visa to Caribbean island St. Martin on the DNC’s internal server, according to a written interview published Wednesday.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
This article is really a discussion about the power of the media to affect behavior. It has been said bad news about you is in the long run better than no news about you. Often people pay little attention to the details and only a small number of people bother to fact check a lot of what they hear. The result is that often the name and a basic message heard enough Times is stuck in the media consumer’s mind. Truth or proof isn’t particularly a given to the consumer of media and target of the message... The consumers must do their own homework to find out the truth and look for proof. Most don’t have the time and would rather spend free time being entertained and distracted from real life by media rather than searching for truth and using it to face reality.
