A CNN breaking news headline declared the “end of the Internet as we know it” after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted Thursday afternoon to repeal its landmark net neutrality rules.
“End of the internet as we know it,” the lead CNN.com headline read briefly after the FCC voted 3-2 along party lines to do away with its 2015 Open Internet Order that was implemented during the Obama administration.
“Trump’s FCC repeals Obama-era net neutrality regulations intended to keep the web open and fair,” read the CNN sub-headline on its home page.
Guess what? I got up this morning and my internet is still working. Just as fast and zippy as always. So much for the hysteria.
