ATT objects to metaphor of White House chief of Technology, comparing ISP's to China!


AT&T has objected to comments made by Andrew McLaughlin, White House chief of technology, comparing the potential for web censorship by ISP’s to censorship by China. All this appears in a story by Cecilia Kang, The Washington Post, p A15, “Comments on net neutrality irk AT&T: White House official links the issue to censorship in China”, link here.

That earlier entry is in the Post Voices column Nov. 23 and seems to be this, and refer to remarks made at a telecom law conference at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln (one state up from my own University of Kansas, where I went to grad school myself; a math PhD friend became a professor there).
