Regulators are now off the backs of big internet providers. Thanks to a resolution signed by President Trump earlier this month, consumer-friendly privacy rules passed by the Obama-era Federal Communications Commission won’t take effect. Rules designed to protect net neutrality—the idea that internet providers shouldn’t be able to give certain content preferential treatment—seem likely to fall next.Republicans argue that the government should stay out of regulating the internet. And, in a perfect world, they’d be right. Ideally, if your internet service provider slipped permission ... Read More

When Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced his first-in-the-nation proposal to make state college tuition free for middle-class students, he stood next to Bernie Sanders. This week when Cuomo celebrated its approval, he was arm in arm with Hillary Clinton. Democrats still smarting from Clinton’s presidential loss are already looking for a new standard bearer for 2020. And some observers say Cuomo is already acting like it, increasingly positioning himself with party leaders, aiming his message at middle-class angst and touting measures such as free tuition as an example of the kind of big ideas he can accomplish. “He’s running. It’s pretty clear,” said University of Maryland political scientist Robert Koulish, who said the ... Read More
