Keen blasts Free Press for linking net neutrality to Internet freedom

After Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton gave a well-received speech on Internet freedom yesterday, Free Press's executive director Josh Silver put out a statement linking Internet censorship to net neutrality.

Today, Andrew Keen, an adviser to Arts + Labs, a coalition of technology and entertainment companies, wrote in an op-ed that Silver's response was "a ridiculous attack on American companies" by "comparing American phone and cable corporations with repressive overseas regimes in Iran and China."

Keen continues, "Has the radical pro-network-neutrality lobby group Free Press no shame, no sense of moral perspective, no grasp of reality outside their echo-chamber obsession with vilifying America’s telecoms and cable providers?"
