Irony: If You Want To Know What The FCC’s Rules On Internet Openness Are, You Need To File A FOIA (Politics)

We’ve already talked about how the FCC was going to approve heavily watered down (and written in conjunction with AT&T) “net neutrality” rules today — which it did. However, one aspect of all this that is particularly ridiculous is the fact that the FCC voted on rules which it has not released, and which it claims may be adjusted before they are released. Considering that these rules are supposed to be about internet openness it seems pretty ironic that the rules are secret. Jeff Jarvis noted this irony in asking if he needed to file a Freedom of Information Act request just to find out what was voted on. He followed it up by filing just such a request that seeks not just the ru les, but also details of correspondences and meeting notes leading up to the creation of the rules. We’ll see what the FCC comes back with.
