FreePress Cries Wolf -- Yet Again
Submitted by Scott Cleland on Wed, 2011-08-03 12:40
FreePress with its "all complaints all the time" approach to advocacy has been caught once again "crying wolf" when there was no real problem or threat.
FreePress also continues to cry wolf about its spurious tethering" complaint against Verizon because users are prevented from unauthorized tethering of additional devices trying to bypass users' terms of service agreement.
Remember, FreePress also cried wolf last year with its spurious charges against Comcast for not allowing Level-3/Netflix to game the backbone market by trying to claim net neutrality meant that unregulated backbone peering arrangements should be treated like Title II interconnection agreements.
In sum, like the proverbial boy who cried wolf destroyed his credibility by screaming there was a big problem when one did not exist, FreePress has earned its reputation for not being credible by repeatedly claiming broadband actions were problems, when the facts showed they were not.
