New York AG Reveals Massive Fraud Linked to CNN and MSNBC Parent Companies

New York Attorney General Leticia James has revealed a massive fraud perpetrated by the parent companies of CNN and MSNBC.

During the 2017 FCC decision on the repeal of Net Neutrality, almost 18 million of the 22 million comments were fake.

Nearly 8.5 million of the comments came from the group Broadband for America, which includes major internet providers like AT&T, Comcast, and Charter.

According to Fox News:

“The Office of the New York Attorney General (OAG) found that fake comments accounted for nearly 18 million of the more than 22 million comments the FCC received during its 2017 rulemaking,” the AG’s report reads. “This type of fraud has significant consequences for our democracy. Federal and state agencies rely on public comments to set standards that govern many aspects of our lives, from public health to consumer protection to the environment, and, in this case, the rules that govern how we share and consume content over the internet. Public comments can also influence legislators and the laws they enact.”

“The OAG found that millions of fake comments were submitted through a secret campaign, funded by the country’s largest broadband companies, to manufacture support for the repeal of existing net neutrality rules using lead generators,” the report continued. “And millions more were submitted by a 19- year old college student using made-up identities. The OAG also found that the FCC’s rulemaking proceeding was not unique. Some of the same parties and tactics have infected other rulemakings and processes for public engagement.”

“Today, we stopped three of these marketing companies from continuing their illegal behavior and recommended reforms to stop this type of fraud in the future,” she added. “We will continue to shine a light on abuses and disinformation that drown out the voices of the American people.”

The Trump administration’s net neutrality repeal, which the FCC referred to as the “Restoring Internet Freedom Order” and which rolled back Obama-era rules, took effect on June 11, 2018. The FCC, led by then-Chairman Ajit Pai, said that their move would replace “unnecessary, heavy-handed regulations dating back to 1934 with strong consumer protections, increased transparency and common-sense regulations that will promote investment and broadband deployment.”

Net Neutrality is a hot-button issue and one that the Biden administration is sure to revisit sometime in the near future.

So what’s gonna happen to these liars & those who promoted it? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Notice that Comcast , CNN & MSNBC are are ALL ANTI-Trump, along with facebook, google & twitter. So much for freedom of speech or thought….. because of them, “WE” have none.

Senator Josh Hawley has been raging about this for some time. He is working on a bill to break up Big Tech. One thing I hope Trump does when he regains the WH is DEFUND the NPR. They are part of the MSM and push leftist BS.

Will there be any Justice linked to the exposed culprits? Probably not. We have a two tiered Justice system.

We need to shut every one of those establishments down. Fraud is against the law, and by giving the American people untrue information, they are all committing fraud.

Yep, all these MSM groups say that Fox is not licensed as “news” rather as “entertainment” but, you’ll get more news from Fox in 24 hours than these “really bad entertainment” faux news networks and I have had it with Fox so that is going some for me!

You can’t trust any media outlet. And TNN is getting more and more notorious for censoring too!

I have experienced this many times on your site, more than on most locations. I post perfectly acceptable comments, then quickly become frustrated as they are marked as awaiting approval. The problem has to be linked to your site, as most sites do not have this issue. Your algorithms for moderation need to be replaced.

I made a comment once that simply said: “Thank you for that, and God bless you.” And guess what? It was delayed for publication because it needed to be approved. It was approved, but why did it need to be approved? Perhaps you can explain that for me?

I wouldn’t take the NY AG at her word since she’s hand in glove with the woke crowd and has been attacking Donald Trump continuously since before and after the election. Just think of Pravda when you think of James. An” Independent” investigation without partisan political bias would be in order.

It surprises me that with all of our tax dollars that go to these politicians THAT ARE SUPPOSED To work for US. We don’t have 1 trust worthy one in the bunch. It’s time to the lifers out of politics.
