New peice from WRAL about hb1587 called Committee OKs Bill to Limit Municipal Telecom Plans. Check out the text here and the video here. This one was pretty factual with a good balance between the views. But I just don’t agree this is about any kind of fairness. No matter what big telecom says we need to have a democratically elected body providing infrastructure. Now and well into the future. Elected bodies will serve North Carolinians. If not we will elect someone else. Can the same be said about the telcom business? No. Not in this day and age where Ma Bell has returned from the dead.
