FCC Commissioner Michael O'Rielly on Tuesday suggested the government should investigate Netflix's practice of throttling video content delivery to customers using mobile devices. However, Netflix's video throttling was not a violation of the FCC's Net neutrality rules, O'Rielly also said. Netflix last week announced plans to offer a data saver feature for mobile apps beginning in May. The company, a proponent of Net neutrality, admitted that it secretly throttled back the speed of its video service to customers of Verizon and AT&T.

Itís ironic that we complain about voter suppression and shortened voting times and then we have so many caucuses. The caucuses are the least democratic political operation in America. They cater to the people who have a lot of time on their hands, and whatís interesting is Sanders is the nominee of the caucuses and Hillary is the nominee of the primaries.
I am disappointed by the voters who say, ďOK Iím just going to show you how angry I am!Ē And Iím particularly unimpressed with people who sat out the Congressional elections of 2010 and 2014 and then are angry at Democrats because we havenít been able to produce public policies they like. They contributed to the public policy problems and now they are blaming other people for their own failure to vote, and then itís like, ďOh look at this terrible system,Ē but it was their voting behavior that brought it about.
