The internet has been buzzing for the past week over rumors that beloved search giant Google has finally become the evil empire it was always destined to be. Like Anakin Skywalker right after skinny dipping in a lava bath, Google is about to turn its back on the people who made it powerful in the first place by striking an agreement with Verizon that, from the way it looks, will create a “2-tier” internet where prioritized content can be accessed at higher speeds, as long as you can afford it. This could be devastating to small businesses or non-profits who rely on the affordability and easy distribution that the internet offers.

The FCC has given up. All I can say is “Et tu, Google?”
