Steven’s telecom bill HR5252 is now called the “Advanced Telecommunications and Opportunity Reform (ATOR) Act”—but still fails to protect Net Neutrality, allows for telecommunication ‘redlining’ of low income and rural communities, and hurts public access TV, says Anthony Riddle of the Alliance For Community Media.

new_orleans.jpgThat’s exactly what an editor for the business section at the Boston Globe said during class at Harvard when I proposed writing a story about the correlation between the rise in crime and poverty in our city. I was dumbfounded and almost answered, “All you have to do is look outside your window,” as I remembered the men standing day after day on the street corners looking for work at my Somerville neighborhood. Then again, I didn’t know where the editor lived and the suburbs isn’t exactly a Boston hub for the homeless. The story idea was shut down, and we both moved on with our privileged lives.
