Why is Fox News launching a campaign against Net Neutrality?

Recently Fox News has started a campaign against Net Neutrality. Of course, they saying they're in favour of net neutrality while actually wanting it abolished. They've twisted the meaning as to what net neutrality is. They're intentionally lying and trying to manipulate the public to support their corporate view. There is no way anyone under the age of 40 could possibly support Fox's bullshit.

And since people were making snarky comments about apparently no proof, I have linked clips from youtube.

    I don't know of anyone who is excited about the government controlling the internet, and I seriously doubt that you do.

    Net Neutrality is yet a way for the FCC to try and regulate and gain control of the Internet, which is free enterprise and privately owned and run by a number of private businesses. It has worked marvelously well without any government interference.

    However, the government being what it is, wants to tax the hell out of it and make problems with it where there are none. The Internet has existed and grown and expanded completely in a free enterprise and free market sense since it's inception. It's making money by leaps and bounds and the government can't stand not have a piece of that pie that other people have worked so hard to make.

    I don't want to see it come to fruition either.

    Media Matters has as much right to try to bring down Fox as Fox has to try to bring down the Democratic party. Both are covered by the 1st amendment. At least Media Matters is honest and doesn't pretend to be "fair and balanced."

    CONSERVATIVES:

    I don't believe in government control of absolutely ANYTHING and I assure you that Net Neutrality is NOT government control of the internet. It's another regulatory policy on COMPANIES that practice favoritism of bandwidth. This will actually make your internet faster and does not in any way give the FCC the power to censor anything.

    If it did, I would personally do everything I could to stop it.

    It depends what you mean by net neutrality.

    A truly neutral internet.. or the attempt to seize control and silence critics that the Obama administration has called "net neutrality."

    Fox is a huge corporation NEWSCORP

    They completely control what news their viewers, listeners and readers get, so of course they are against Obama's proposal to block internet providers from selecting which sites they can see

    Obama wants the consumer to decide which sites they see

    Fox wants the corporate ISP's to decide for you

    If you are truly interested, you should go to techdirt.com and read their articles on net neutrality (of which they have several!)

    However, you should certainly realize that Fox (I believe) is still owned by Rupert Murdoch, who owns other entertainment and news sources, and has a vested interest in charging for his services.

    Net neutrality takes away our freedoms. A little farther left and we will be completely communist.

    Your right. No one under 40 could believe Fox's BS. They are full of crap plain and simple.

    wow, Beck is truly a moron. While listening to Fox News, I find myself wondering if I should laugh out loud or puke my guts out.
