When AT&T, Verizon, and others decided to fight Net Neutrality regulation, I don't think they planned for this:
[Clinton] was the top recipient of funds from employees of AT&T, Verizon, Comcast and Time Warner through the first quarter of 2007. John McCain, who holds a senior position on the Senate committee that oversees the telecom industry, lagged far behind. Overall, employees of the nation’s telecommunications and cable television companies contributed $119,250 to Clinton’s campaign. [...] Clinton and fellow Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois are co-sponsors of a bill that would require large Internet providers to treat all traffic equally. The ”network neutrality” bill is anathema to AT&T and Verizon, who see it as unnecessary government regulation of their networks.
