Trump’s FCC chair shuts down celebrities pushing net neutrality conspiracy theory

Data scientist Jeff Kao has also run an analysis of the public record, and estimates that over a million comments filed in support of repealing net neutrality may have been fake. Numerous comments, Schneiderman said, were filed using false identities, including those of minors and deceased people.

People were invited to submit their views on net neutrality to the FCC earlier this year.

The chairman announced a plan in April to repeal the rules that restrict internet service providers from discriminating against certain websites.

Although this likely constitutes a violation of state law, Schneiderman asserted, the FCC has repeatedly stonewalled all efforts by the NY officials to investigate the use of stolen identities.

FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, who opposes the net neutrality rollback, agreed that the vote should be delayed. Last month, Schneiderman criticized the FCC for its failure to cooperate in his office's ongoing investigation into the fake comments, which it began in June, making repeated contacts to the FCC over the subsequent five months. Specifically, the groups propose the FCC delay the vote until a pending court case before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - the en banc review in Federal Trade Commission v. AT&T Mobility - resolves.

Democratic Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said an unprecedented 23 million comments were submitted to the Federal Communications Commission about net neutrality. According to the sources, Chairman Pai's staff had expressed concern that any attempt to block fraudulent comments would result in accusations that Pai was trying to censor net neutrality advocates.

To this end, we request a thorough investigation by the FCC into reports that bots may have interfered with this proceeding by filing hundreds of thousands of comments. "The FCC chairman and his staff have responded by stonewalling". The current net neutrality rules, approved during the Obama administration, barred internet providers from deliberately speeding up or slowing down traffic to or from specific websites and apps. "So I call on my colleagues to halt this vote until we get to the bottom of what has happened with these stolen identities and the quality of our public record", said Rosenworcel, who was nominated by President Barack Obama to the FCC.

A separate study from the Pew Research Center indicated that among the record public comments about net neutrality filed with the FCC over a four-month period, only 6% were unique comments.

The AG's office set up a web portal where anybody can enter their name to see if it was used fraudulently. The problem? In most parts of the United States, the amount of ISPs available are pitiful, and for many, there is only one option.

As Republicans now hold a majority of the FCC's five seats, the order to repeal the net neutrality rules is expected to pass. Twenty-eight United States senators have asked that the vote be postponed due to the allegations of fraud dismissed by Chairman Pai.

"Our process for serving the public inter is broken", Rosenworcel said.
