    is one of the endgame goals of the destruction of net neutrality. Hard news, citizen reporting along with rational discussion of same (ala the Daily Kos) will be strangled and drowned in the bathtub, along with any remnant of government that serves the interests of the people.

    I think the Times has exposed the corporate playbook with this coverage.  Obscure the truth, confuse and misdirect the public about what the ruling will do to the internet, demonize the opposition; just plain lie to the public in the interim until it is too late.  After net neutrality, pesky "primary sources" will no longer be a problem for the corporate bottom line. Propaganda outlets like the Times will be rewarded with an EZ-Pass to the new information Supertollway.
