Obama's call for an open Internet puts him at odds with regulators

(WashPost): http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-switch/wp/2014/11/11/the-fcc-weighs-breaking-with-obama-over-the-future-of-the-internet/

     Hours after President Obama called for the Federal Communications
     Commission to pass tougher regulations on high-speed Internet
     providers, the agency's Democratic chairman told a group of business
     executives that he was moving in a different direction ... "What you
     want is what everyone wants: an open Internet that doesn't affect your
     business," a visibly frustrated Wheeler said at the meeting, according
     to four people who attended. "What I've got to figure out is how to
     split the baby."

After all, Wheeler can't afford to disappoint his former bosses, to
whom we can wager he will return for the *really* big bucks once he
leaves the FCC.
