Net Neutrality repeal tainted by fraud & bots, Stanford study confirms amid NY AG probe

An investigation into widespread fake comments submitted to the Federal Communications Commission during the debate over repealing net neutrality has subpoenaed 14 groups, as more evidence emerges that as many as half were fake.

New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood sent subpoenas to telecom industry groups, conservative groups, and pro-net-neutrality groups alike in an effort to get to the bottom of the fake comments, which may have tipped the scales in favor of repeal. The FCC received a record 22 million comments before opting to roll back the provisions passed in 2015 that required internet service providers to handle all web traffic equally.

I like your stuff, AP. Personally, I wish you wouldn't use RT as your source.

That's it.

RT is continuing in the hallowed Soviet propaganda tradition of reporting on scandals in the US. We never hear about scandals in Russia.

I wish the only problem with RT is that it engages in propaganda.

VOA is an American propaganda outlet. Everybody knows it, they're not hiding their role.

That said, VOA doesn't tend to regularly feature Russian, Chinese, or Venezuelan RW anti-Semitic conspiracy nuts as authoritative parts of its regular programming.
