FCC chairman Ajit Pai slapped down two Hollywood starlets who were whining that he was being propagandized by Russian interference.
Check out what he said:
Hello @Alyssa_Milano and @MarkRuffalo, the 445K comments you referenced, purporting to be from Russia, are in support of #netneutrality regulations. You’re always welcome to view the public comments at https://t.co/oV8TRt7shu. https://t.co/bhqUJKIB71— Ajit Pai (@AjitPaiFCC) December 3, 2017
He was responding to this idiot:
Who had linked this idiot:
Who linked an article from Bloomberg News:
A study has found more than 7.75 million comments were submitted from email domains attributed to FakeMailGenerator.com, and they had nearly identical wording. The FCC says some of the nearly 23 million comments on Chairman Ajit Pai’s proposal to gut Obama-era rules were filed under the same name more than 90 times each.
And then there were the 444,938 from Russian email addresses, which also raised eyebrows, even though it’s unclear if they were from actual Russian citizens or computer bots originating in the U.S. or elsewhere.
WHICH THEY DID NOT READ APPARENTLY [fixed!!]:
A “vast majority” of all comments originated from form letters with exact or similar phrasing, according to Emprata. Personalized comments, or those that appeared only once in the docket, favored retaining the rules by a margin of 1.5 million versus 23,000 for repeal, according to the study.
Tim Karr, spokesman for the policy group Free Press that supports the 2015 rules, said, “There’s substantial evidence there was considerable tampering with the process.”
How stupid do you have to be to tweet an article that completely undermines your own political agenda? If you’re a Hollywood starlet, I guess you can’t spare a brain cell for politics, you gotta use them all to memorize your witless script lines….
