The Rundown - Mon 12/4/17: FCC Chairman Ajit Pai

At 8:06 AM, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai joins us to talk about net neutrality: What is it? Why do liberals and ginormous firms like Google and Facebook want it? And why is Chairman Pai against it and working to roll back the roughly 2-year-old regulations.

Here's Ajit on Kennedy's show recently:

The stock market fell 350 points in a short time on Friday before recovering about 2/3 of the loss after ABC's Brian Ross reported that Mike Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russians (not that such contact was itself either wrong or illegal) was prepared to testify that Donald Trump directed him to make such contacts during the presidential campaign. 

That story turned out to be wrong and Brian Ross was suspended without pay for four weeks. Ross has something of a history of being wrong on important stories, including one that hit very close to home to us here in the Denver area. You may recall that after the Aurora theater shooting, Mr. Ross named a local Tea Party leader as the shooter.
