Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), an ardent net-neutrality opponent, is advocating that a hearing on the subject in the House next week should include a broader group of voices than just broadband companies.
"The focus on [Internet service providers] reflects a flawed perspective on the issue. Net neutrality is not the government protecting Americans from greedy ISPs; it is an arrogant bureaucracy imposing its vision of the Internet on innovators and job creators. Those are the people we need to hear from," Blackburn's spokesman Claude Chafin said.
