Cable lobbying group tells you why you don't want muni broadband (video)

Attempting to slow down quickening consumer support for municipally run broadband services, the big-cable-backed lobbying group NetCompetition has released a short video, outlining all the reasons why it thinks muni broadband is a bad idea. Speaking directly to a camera for nearly three minutes, NetCompetition chairman Scott Cleland says the government simply can't regulate and compete in a business at the same time. The Boy Genius Report (BGR), which surfaced the video, effectively counters that the U.S. Postal Service competes with Federal Express and UPS. You can see the full video--and BGR's rebuttal--here.
