    Waxman and the FCC staff are also said to be looking at ways to ease the "consumer complaint" process, which could also be used along with the advisory boards.

    The House Energy and Commerce Committee is also looking at how it can put in place policies that would allow it greater oversight of the Internet. "Internet radio is becoming a big deal, and we're seeing that some web sites are able to control traffic and information, while other sites that may be of interest or use to citizens get limited traffic because of the way the people search and look for information," says on committee staffer. "We're at very early stages on this, but the chairman has made it clear that oversight of the Internet is one of his top priorities."

    "This isn't just about Limbaugh or a local radio host most of us haven't heard about," says Democrat committee member. "The FCC and state and local governments also have oversight over the Internet lines and the cable and telecom companies that operate them. We want to get alternative views on radio and TV, but we also want to makes sure those alternative views are read, heard and seen online, which is becoming increasingly video and audio driven. Thanks to the stimulus package, we've established that broadband networks -- the Internet -- are critical, national infrastructure. We think that gives us an opening to look at what runs over that critical infrastructure."
    Welcome to the New Boss. :mad:

    Last time I checked Freedom of Speech was still the law of the land. But give the socialists time, that too will be a thing of the past. :mad:

    From what I understand, government laws only apply to content on servers in their country. So the groups who think freedom of speech is violated can move to servers in other countries.

    How will they manage to 'make sure' that their socialist views are seen, heard, etc?

    "The FCC and state and local governments also have oversight over the Internet lines and the cable and telecom companies that operate them.
    I believe this goes beyond regulating the server content. Moving a server off shore doens't help much when the government is going to regulate the companies and what they can display.
