Letter received from Al Franken:
The sky is red. The world is flat. And two plus two equals pancakes.
These statements aren’t just false — they’re downright ridiculous. And so is the claim that net neutrality amounts to a government takeover of the Internet.
Let’s get this straight: Net neutrality isn’t a change — it’s the status quo. It’s the way the Internet operates right now: free and open. And it isn’t the government that’s attempting an Internet “takeover” — it’s the big corporations who want to undermine net neutrality and the Republicans who want to let them.
It’s important that everyone we can talk to DOES know the truth — because this anti-Internet-freedom, pro-corporate-takeover legislation is coming to the Senate.
I’m asking you to make a commitment to standing up for truth, logic, and the free and open Internet by clicking here and taking action to help us get the truth out.

The sky is blue. The world is round. Two plus two equals four. These are truths. Here’s another one: Net neutrality isn’t a government takeover of anything — in fact, it protects the Internet from a corporate takeover.
And here’s one more truth: It’ll only stay that way if we stand together and fight back against misinformation. Will you take a few minutes today and help save the Internet?
