New FCC rules are not a federal takeover

The Federal Communications Commission's controversial "net neutrality" rules, approved 3-2 last week, were met with predictable howls of outrage.

Verizon, claiming the FCC was imposing "1930s rules on the Internet," went so far as to issue a typewritten news release dated Feb. 26, 1934.

Cute, but hardly convincing. The net neutrality rules are many things. What they are not is a federal takeover, or government censorship or, as some critics put it, Obamacare for the Internet.
