A couple of comments:
1. I see this issue about this FCC study to be quite different...and essentially unrelated...to the other article you quoted.
2. I think every news department head that the FCC visits should tell them, maybe not in these exact words, to piss up a rope.
3. I predict three things:
a. Nobody will really much care what Reporters Without Borders thinks about the US.
b. The FCC will quietly let this whole study die.
c. Mr Pai will lose his job.

Your 3(a) is spot on though something to consider in context, but disagree with your 3(c) - though of course I want you to be correct.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
This sounds like it came straight from the top. From our Professor President....What better way to try and intimidate pesky facts from making it to the public? Send in the Government officials to say just participate in this study, and answer this form of 200 questions....Hmmmm....Sounds like maybe Lois Lerner found a new job....
