Certainly the Fairness Doctrine attempts to regulate political speech, but Net Neutrality has nothing to do with political speech. It was actually quite jarring to see him mention the two in the same breath.

The Net Neutrality debate deals with the transmission of digital content (bits and bytes); no regard is paid to whether those bytes represent a political opinions, or an episode of “The Simpsons.” There are plenty of conservatives and libertarians in favor of Net Neutrality.

I believe that Net Neutrality will actually do the opposite: it’ll ensure that grassroots sites (such as freerepublic.com, where I first found this video) don’t have to pay high bandwidth bills.
