When the Federal Communications Commission voted on Thursday to repeal Obama-era internet regulations known as “net neutrality,” the left lost its mind. CNN claimed it was the end of the internet, while late-night comedians like Jimmy Kimmel bashed FCC chairman Ajit Pai.
Pai responded to the criticism Friday on Fox News.
What did he say?
Responding directly to Kimmel, who called Pai a “jackhole,” Pai said objectors to the repeal of net neutrality have everything wrong.
“Those who’ve said the internet as we know it is about to end have been proven wrong starting this morning,” Pai said. “We have a free internet going forward.”
Pai added that Kimmel’s “name-calling hysteria is disappointing, but it’s not surprising.”
“Those on the other side have literally nothing other to peddle than hysteria and misinformation and fear about the light-touch approach that we’ve had for most of the internet’s existence,” he explained.
