Abstract:

A boon to computer users, broadband has meant fast Internet service for millions. But as the phone and cable giants that operate these networks consider the profits to be made by controlling the content and delivery of the Internet, Net neutrality-and the easy sharing of ideas and opinions that goes with it-may soon become a thing of the past in America. In this program, Bill Moyers and journalist Rick Karr report on the struggle for the soul of the Internet as lobbyists and legislators reshape the telecom laws for the broadband era. Will democracy's high-tech forum for the exchange of ideas be destroyed by regulations that favor online entities with deep pockets?
