We witnessed a violent flexing of lobbying and propaganda muscles. And it was scarily effective. Even if the cable industry will eventually implode there are many players out there that can flex those muscles. This is worrying and it is poisoning the US, trampling with basic rights and hindering innovation. What could possibly go wrong?
It's a private corporation with many stake holders (read countries)represented in their ranks whereas the US has the US to represent everybody. The change is welcome and people like you spreading vitriol are just making it take longer.
