    Txpatriot takes money from telecoms and other broadband providers to discredit real journalism. I loved hearing Susan Crawford’s talk and it is vital that we talk about the future of our country. Cable companies rather pay people like txpatriot to troll around the Internet than pay for upgrades or reduce costs! Wow, thank you txpatriot for showing me the light.
