Responding to “Crazy Talk” Volume 4 – Community Broadband Bits Episode #72

| Written by Christopher | No Comments | Updated on Nov 12, 2013 The content that follows was originally published on the Institute for Local Self-Reliance website at https://ilsr.org/responding-to-crazy-talk-volume-4-community-broadband-bits-episode-72/

We are back with the fourth volume of our responding to “Crazy Talk” theme on the Community Broadband Bits podcast. The source of this week’s crazy talk is a public relations executive for Time Warner Cable, following an interview I did on WUNC in North Carolina.

Lisa Gonzalez, myself, and our colleague John Farrell react to some of the claims made to discuss what you should know about community owned networks and broadband policy more generally.

We talk about misleading statistics, lies about how local governments fund networks, and whether Time Warner Cable or local utilities pay more in taxes.
