Federal Communications Commission (FCC), 445 12th Street SW, Washington, DC, 20554, United States

Federal Communications Commission member Michael Copps will appear on "Bill Moyers Journal" April 23. In the interview, Commissioner Copps says Network Neutrality won't be achieved "without a fight." he argues that because of the media shift online, it is in the public interest to regulate the administration of Internet service. "This is a tough question for America right now. Here you've got this dynamic technology that thrives on openness,that thrives on innovation... and you don't want to regulate or artificially limit it. But at the end of the day, if that's where everything is moving, if that's where our national dialogue, if that's where our civic dialogue is moving, there is a public interest component to that...." Commissioner Copps said. "I think at the end of the day, you have to come to that conclusion: we have a public interest in how this is used to inform and serve the American people."
