Government Bullies Google

I think this John Stewart video perfectly embodies the main themes of our readings and the dilemma of net neutrality.
JON STEWART SPEAKS ABOUT NET NEUTRALITY

It’s ironic that the Google VP advocates so strongly for net neutrality in 2006, but two years later they prevent the work of journalist Matthew Lee from being shown on the server.  I think it’s sad that Google can be so easily pressured to remove someone’s work or give someone better access because they have the power or money to do so.  I think this is a hot button issue and certainly a matter to keep a close eye on!
