Earlier this month, FCC Chair Julius Genachowski said he’ll be ordering controversial new Net Neutrality rules on December 21st. To date, however, we have yet to see what’s in his Hidden Order.
American consumers deserve more transparency than this closed process. But, it’s apparent Chairman Genachowski will not abide.
So, where to go to get at the Hidden Order?
Press reports and FCC records show that digital “consumer rights” groups Public Knowledge, Free Press and the Open Internet Coalition have an intimate connection to the Hidden Order – more than they’re letting on in public.
In a time when some of these groups support WikiLeaks, they should also show the same enthusiastic support to reveal the Chairman’s Hidden Order. After all, they owe it to American consumers who want to know how the FCC’s new laws will harm the vibrant and unregulated (for now) Internet.
Sign the PETITION to “FOIA” Public Knowledge, Free Press & the Open Internet Coalition for access to the FCC’s Hidden Net Neutrality Order!
