Did California Save The Internet From Ajit Pai's FCC?

Ajit Pai's plans to make the internet inaccessible might have been stopped by the State of California. But there is more work to be done if we want real net neutrality. Evan Greer from Fight for The Future explains. Abuse of monopoly powers are trying to prevent your access to the internet unless you pay much higher rates for the privilege. In California, a lawsuit has crushed the ability of those monopolies to reject net neutrality.

Evan Greer is the Deputy Director of Fight for the future, a musician, her latest album, "She/Her/They/Them” and activist. She joins Thom Hartmann to discuss a vital step in ensuring a free and open internet. as well as discussing what steps we can take next to make sure the internet is open for everyone
