FCC chairman voted to sell your browsing history — so we asked to see his | ZDNet
Thanks to the FCC chairman, internet providers can now sell Americans’ browsing histories for targeted advertising. We thought it was only fair to see his — so, we filed a Freedom of Information request.
Republican FCC Chairman Ajit Pai — a former Verizon lawyer — was a major force in the decision to stop rules protecting the privacy of Americans’ information online from going into effect, saying, “The more heavily you regulate something, the less of it you’re likely to get.”
So ZDNet filed a Freedom of Information request for Pai's history. The response was, of course, "no." Maybe they should have asked his ISP instead?
