When I see reports like this, I'm sure it's exactly as you say, bait and switch. But my question is, what is wrong with Net Nutrality? It looks like it protects free speech from what I've read about it. Do I have that wrong?

Now, yes, there is always the idea that something which sounds good will be used against it's apparent purpose, but what exactly is it that people are concerned about?
Net Neutrality isn't really about free speech, it's about open markets. Net Neutrality can be defined in one sentence, and that's pretty much what the FCC did except they had to include all the legalese because that's just the reality of how lawyers work these days. Net Neutrality is the idea that a packet of data cannot be discriminated against due to it's source, destination, or contents.

That same packet of data can be taxed, as well. THAT'S what I think it's about.
