Quotable

“The White House last month hailed Ms. Sohn as ‘one of the nation’s leading public advocates for open, affordable, and democratic communications networks.’ Translation: She favors deploying the agency’s regulatory power to shackle broadband providers and silence conservative voices. Ms. Sohn founded the leftwing group Public Knowledge that has long sought more government control of the internet and media. She was a counselor to Obama FCC Chair Tom Wheeler and was a driving force behind the ‘net neutrality’ regulation that classified broadband providers as common carriers under Title II of the Communications Act of 1934… Ms. Sohn’s strident partisanship should disqualify her from serving as an officer of an independent agency with so much power to control the public airwaves.”
– The WSJ Editorial Board on President Biden’s Nomination of Gigi Sohn to the FCC
