SavetheInternet.com invites you to an exclusive online discussion with award-winning journalist Bill Moyers about his upcoming PBS special, “The Net at Risk,” on the fight over Net Neutrality and the future of the Internet.
Bloggers and online activists have transformed the issue of Net Neutrality from a closed-door discussion with lobbyists into a public debate involving millions of Americans. This online forum will give bloggers and writers covering the issue a chance to offer feedback before this new documentary airs nationwide.
