The Reason Ajit Pai's Keynote at Verizon in D.C. Today Is Secret [telecom]

Moderator's Note:

This is a "guilty pleasure" post, and I'm a sucker for "secret" headlines. Pai's remarks are included in the article, which says it got them from the FCC website.


The Chatham House Rule will keep his comments secret.

By Nick Lucchesi

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai gave a 10 a.m. keynote address at Verizon Communications' Washington, D.C. headquarters on Tuesday, but because of an old British rule applied to the event by its organizer, the comments won't be made public, less than ten days before Pai will push for the removal of net neutrality consumer protections.

The Chatham House Rule is "world famous" and reads as follows: "When a meeting, or part thereof, is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed."

His *written* remarks are public. What's secret is whatever he said in the Q&A session after, and in private conversations with other attendees.
