Moyers on America "The Net at Risk" | PBS

Duration: 03:28

The future of the Internet is up for grabs. Big corporations are lobbying Washington to turn the gateway to the Web into a toll road. Yet the public knows little about what's happening behind closed doors where the future of democracy's newest forum is being decided. If a few mega media giants own the content and control the delivery of radio, television, telephone services and the Internet, they'll make a killing and citizens will pay for it. In this clip from the upcoming PBS documentary "The Net at Risk" from Bill Moyers, reporter Rick Karr looks at the issue of "net neutrality"- rules that the FCC eliminated, which allowed every American and every company equal access to the Internet.
