Ajit Pai not concerned about number of pro-net neutrality comments

One day after a large protest of his plan to gut net neutrality rules, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai was asked if the number of pro-net neutrality comments submitted to the FCC might cause a change in course.

In response, Pai maintained his stance that the number of comments is not as important as the content of those comments.

“As I said previously, the raw number is not as important as the substantive comments that are in the record,” Pai said at a press conference following yesterday’s monthly FCC meeting.

Call me cynical, but to me that reads as “the number of brown envelopes shoved underneath my hotel door isn’t as important as the contents of those envelopes”.
