Federal Communications Commission chair Ajit Pai has been under fire after he announced that Obama-era rules for net neutrality would be reversed. He joined Glenn today to explain what undoing the regulation means for the internet.
“All we are proposing to do is to go back to President Clinton’s light touch, market-based framework that was in place from 1996 to 2015,” Pai said. “It’s a regulatory system that has been proven to work; that’s why we have the internet economy that is the envy of the world.”
Here are some of the topics he covered with Glenn (listen above):
- The protesters who harassed his family over Thanksgiving weekend
- The FCC’s role in online speech
- The real effects of repealing net neutrality regulations
