Allan Block on government regulation and protecting old media

Allan Block rightfully is defensive on the idea forcing Internet providers to open up their bandwidth to competitors, and he probably has the same perspective on "Net Neutrality". But he does make an interesting quote on wanting the government to protect Old Media.

Allan Block, chairman of Block Communications — owner of Buckeye CableSystem in Toledo, Ohio, two newspapers and several TV stations — said after investing in the infrastructure to provide high-speed Internet service, cable shouldn’t be told it can’t control its own pipe.

“If you’re going to punish those that provide the connection, in favor of the ones that need the connection; if you’re going to punish old media that does the news coverage in favor of new media that borrows the news coverage; that isn’t good,” Block said. “It’s time to start protecting old media. It’s time to have a little balancing here.”

He says this in the Multi-Channel news article on the transition at the FCC.

In other words, if Block provides the connection, then in the name of balance, those who use the connection should be punished by limiting, censoring, controlling, and silencing, the content .

If Block is truly interested in balance rather than some kind of "bailout" , then he should shut down the "old media" to guarantee that no one in the "new media" would "borrow the news coverage".

Wow, Block Communications vs Net Neutrality. You taking Block's side Chris?

Pink Slip

is not really a 'newspaper', as much as a scandal rag,that is as afraid to print the names of 'writers',who pen articles on Toledos', infamous TERRORISTS ! Have you noticed that ? The last two Toledo Terrorists, who were convicted last week had their faces, NOT SHOWN, at all, where as , any other criminal DOES ! The Toledo Blade doesn't even have the intestinal or journalistic fortitude, to print the writers names on their articles regarding terrorists..it is always a Blade staff writer?!?! This is not surprising, liberals have no guts, have no morals, and certainly, can only attack, which of course, is what rats do when CORNERED !!

Take it from Mike Coon/John Law/Phakit Mann. This is a guy who knows a lot about being gutsy. Why, he's so brave he sends threatening emails to retired doctors, and calls up people who write letters to the editor at their homes with daring insults about how they are Commies and Dumbocraps!

Brave, brave little man that Mike Coon - bravely phoning in harassing calls to teach them thar Communists and Terrorists and Negroes and Pinkos and RINOS a lesson! Why, just imagine if we had an entire army filled with brave men like Mike Coon, who would use their powers of manly prank calls and masculine emails to terrify our enemies into submission!

Oh, I forgot: BIG TIME!!!!

and you , are as simple as any idiot with drool flowing from their pie-holes. I love your simplistic replies...answer why Toledo sucks so bad and then look into a mirror ....see? You are the problem not, America loving patriots who do not kneel to Muslim scum !! Who was it that killed RFK ? Who was it , in Toledo that were convicted of terrorism...yes indeed.
Muslims, who hate America just like you do.That, along with they vote EXACTLY like you do...for the freedom hating , tax loving Demonrats! And Toledo , is a shining city on the lake thanks to your vote.What a BIG TIME moron you sissies are!!
