If Anyone Knows “Abuse Of Power” It’s Chris Dodd!

If Anyone Knows “Abuse Of Power” It’s Chris Dodd!

By Dell Hill via Hot Air

Sometimes the comedy shows just write themselves.  Case in point:  Today’s news that former Connecticut criminal Chris Dodd says the Internet services that are dark today in protest of SOPA and PIPA legislation are “abusing their power”.

Just how hypocritical is that?

“Nate Nelson of brings us the story:

The MPAA selected Dodd as its new head lobbyist chairman and CEO last year.  Now Dodd is taking aim at Wikipedia, Google, and other websites involved in today’s protest against the SOPA/PIPA internet censorship legislation pending in Congress:

“It is an irresponsible response and a disservice to people who rely on them for information and use their services.  It is also an abuse of power given the freedoms these companies enjoy in the marketplace today.  It’s a dangerous and troubling development when the platforms that serve as gateways to information intentionally skew the facts to incite their users in order to further their corporate interests.”

Did you get that?  The man whom the Center for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) once called one of the most corrupt members of Congress thinks the websites that are protesting SOPA/PIPA today are abusing their power.”
