ISPs on net neutrality: TV networks are the real villains

The FCC has—finally, mercifully—closed up its net neutrality docket. ISPs, Web companies, and public interest groups hustled to turn in last-minute filings yesterday, most showing a naked self-interest that was bracing to behold: Netflix want guaranteed bandwidth for its over-the-top services, cable operators went after the wireless industry, and the wireless industry just came right out and made the argument that Wall Street wouldn't like net neutrality rules and therefore they shouldn't be imposed on it.

But the most intriguing (and one of the most self-serving) arguments came courtesy of Time Warner Cable: the real threat to "neutrality" and the "open Internet" comes not from ISPs but from broadcasters like FOX. Perhaps the FCC would like to go after broadcasters who try to strong arm the cable industry into better deals?
