Stephen Colbert, Net Neutrality, Limbaugh

I've been watching for some report from the MSM (other than carping) on Colbert's performance last week. Finally, here it is.

Doug Elfman, the television critic for the Chicago Sun-Times has spoken loud and clear.

The first half of his review is his opinion, the second half is the text of Colbert's performance (I think it's complete).

Good for him and the Sun-Times.

And while I'm hanging out with the Sun-Times here's Zay N. Smith @ Quick Takes


From Save the Internet at www

"Congress is pushing a law that would abandon the Internet's First Amendment -- a principle called Network Neutrality that prevents companies like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast from deciding which Web sites work best for you --based on which sites pay them the most."

It seems that some are in a panic over nothing.

All a few corporations want to do is take civic-minded part in the management of access to the Internet.

What could possibly go wrong?

And this:

Charging right ahead

From Rush Limbaugh at www, by the way:

"There was no arrest. There were no handcuffs. There was no perp walk. There is no charge."

Well. Two out of four.

1. There was an arrest. It is listed in the Palm Beach County Jail records as such.

2. There were no handcuffs.

3. There was no perp walk.

4.There is a felony charge, pending certain conditions of a plea deal.

And if Mr. Limbaugh doesn't hold to the deal, he might expect handcuffs and a perp walk.
