Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai revealed plans to roll back net neutrality during a speech in Washington, D.C.

Pai plans to hand regulatory jurisdiction of broadband providers back to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), an agency critics argue is less than prepared to handle.

The net neutrality rules will also set restrictions on internet service providers (ISPs), prioritizing certain kinds of web traffic and throttling others.

While Pai said his proposed changes would reinvigorate broadband investment, the rules were broadly aimed at establishing a level playing field for internet companies. thehill.com

Alisyn Camerota was reluctant to describe the dark side of Fox News. As channel CEO Roger Ailes has been ousted by the Murdoch family, that has changed.

Ailes resigned under pressure last July after another longtime anchor, Gretchen Carlson, sued him and the Murdochs retaining an outside law firm to investigate the allegations.

Ailes has strongly denied all of the allegations, adding he "never engaged in the inappropriate conversations."  cnn.com
