I guess it's a matter of which government they're talking about.
    The internet, at least as a mass medium, was still in its infancy in 1996.

    When I first got cable television my local city council had final authority on the rates.
    That was stripped away with the TCA (I am sure because the industry paid good money to Congress
    to obtain that).

    So, knowing that the internet was going to be a thing, why wouldn't they get that covered as well? Washington, D.C. as a one-stop shop for influence pedding is SO much more convenient.

    I don't know why, but the Republican party opposes net neutrality. They opposed it when the FCC brought it up a few years ago, and they repealed it once they got in power. I'll search for quotes from Ajit Pai, but they said very clearly that they feel it's not under the FCC's jurisdiction.
