Senate said to be willing to look at House bill on net neutrality, with reservations

The best link is a livestream here.  I hope there will be a YouTube video to add later (hope it doesn’t get demonetized).

Trump definitely violates "neutrality" by asking his base to boycott ATT over subsidiary CNN's "fake news" and bias against conservatives


Trump is calling for his “base” consumers to boycott ATT, which owns CNN, in order to reign in on CNN for its “fake news” as Trump calls it.  Here is CNBC’s story

  
Law experts are discussing the tactic, here, as to its novelty, which sounds like Erdogan. 

Here is Trump’s tweet

And it certainly would not be “neutral”.

I have Verizon but would not have time to change providers for “solidarity”.
