Now if they would only practice what they preach.....

It will be interesting to see how that statement gets (ab)used the next
time net neutrality, or legislation like SOPA/PIPA becomes a hot topic.

I suspect they meant "a global Internet free from _other_ government control".

right and i don't think any government body expects to 'practice what
they preach' (it might sound absurd, sarcastic, or ironical, but i am
truly being serious here). it's more of a 'do what i say, not what i
do' mentality.
