The Trump administration has just set in motion a plan to repeal virtually all of the U.S. government’s existing net neutrality rules — a move that could soon deliver a major deregulatory win to telecom/cable giants like AT&T, Charter, Comcast and Verizon.  Ironically, the move comes just as another Trump administration department, the DOJ, seems intent upon delivering a massive blow to AT&T's efforts to acquire Time Warner.

President Donald Trump seems determined to undo just about everything Barack Obama has done. There is one area, however, in which he is following the lead of his predecessor: drone warfare. Not that the public would know anything about it — or the dangerously loose oversight involved. And that’s by design.
