Another in the "will blog this someday" file

A standard conservative noise machine attack which displays shocking, willful ignorance of the way things actually work. I sometimes think these guys imagine banana-republic-like machinations because that appears to be the kind of country they want to live in.

Judicial Watch attempts to prove "collusion" with the FCC over their "net neutrality" rules by citing to, among other things, "a letter summarizing a telephone conversation between Commissioner Michael Copps and Free Press President Josh Silver." This rather willfully misrepresents the fact that this is what we call an "ex parte" presentation to the FCC which, the record will show, is no different from the literally thousands of such made by net neutrality opponents: to Copps as well as others.

And I thought nothing would get more ridiculous than the effort to create a conspiracy around Lightsquared.
