Beck's Bizarre Attack on Net Neutrality.

Whenever I hear Glenn Beck talk about net neutrality, I am left wondering if he has any idea what he is talking about.

He seems to find the whole notion of the government regulating Internet providers so that they cannot limit public access to the Internet as somehow a blow against democracy.

He appears to be arguing that net neutrality is some kind of attack on free speech, when it is actually the complete and utter opposite.

So what's he actually arguing? That we should not have net neutrality? That corporations should be allowed to limit access to the Internet? Net neutrality actually guarantees the preservation of free speech which Beck claims to be attempting to guard, so I am going to have to conclude that this is yet another subject which Beck simply doesn't have a clue about.
