Regulations prohibit Internet service providers from slowing down certain websites or giving special and some preferential treatment to others, potentially for their profit.

Websites and apps are posting memes, GIFs, and alerts that show slow loading of content, the blocked symbol, or requests for payment for faster service.

Don’t worry, your Internet won’t actually slow down. The goal is to encourage users to send comments to the Federal Communications Commission.

Creating Content


The Ws and H, are six questions to answer in information gathering for journalism research, and investigations. The facts formula.

What is the purpose of disseminating this content? Does the presentation of the material clarify or improve the audience's understanding? Is there a question of public policy, community benefit or social importance? Is the use of this material the best way to tell the story? How to justify your decision? Are you ready to explain the reasoning to your audience? How might this material be used later? Do you plan to use the material in promos, and social positions? When to notify to your audience, warning them that they are about to see or hear questionable content? How much detail should the warning provide? Under what circumstances are bodies of victims of accidents or crimes displayed? How much detail is needed to convey the look of the story? Do you cross the line to attract the desire of the spectators? How can you tell the story accurately respecting the rights and privacy of victims or their families? Do the images add to the perception that an area is violent or unsafe? Can you discuss the pros and cons with a diverse group? Would you be willing to include everyone in that discussion, as you are more likely to be representative of your audience? Should you also call others who may be able to give you a view of a stranger and perhaps a media ethics expert who can help with talking points? When covering live events that change quickly, have you taken enough precautions to prevent inappropriate images and sound from being emitted? Is anyone else available to help decide what and how are they used? Have crews been taught to stay out of the picture during transmissions?
