Good news article by Pearl Jam. And such a blatant, crappy move by AT&T.
Who cares? Pear Jam suck.
Precisely. And it serves you right for getting your content from AT&T.
The Net Neutrality bill wouldn't have done a thing to keep AT&T from bleeping a concert they were promoting.
Actually, apples and bricks. They aren't even both fruits.
AT&T needz 2 monetize tha shiz. Leverage, yo!
Even before the net neutrality debate came up, Pearl Jam, or at least Stone Gossard, has been a big supporter of Jay Inslee and his clean energy/anti-global warming efforts. Pearl Jam helped fund the Inslee-led Yes on I-937 (Clean Energy Initiative) campaign last year through its program to mitigate the GHG emissions created by the world tour. They've also put money into solar energy programs.
AT&T's content filtering has everything to do with Net Neutrality. True, this broadcast could lie under the scrutiny of AT&T because they are delivering the content, but the larger issue is packet priority. If content providers like Pearl Jam never take issue with their work being manhandled by the owners of the network upon which it's transmitted, well that's a scary precedent.
How would you like your SLOG delivered at dial-up speed because it contains content deemed controversial by your ISP?
Next time I hear how popular music never has any political content anymore, maybe I'll bring this up.
Even rap isn't political these days. At least not the kind that gets mass distribution. It was a big deal when Kanye pointed out that Bush didn't like black people, and he didn't even say it in one of his raps.
