To be fair, not as concerned with the politicians being the ones doing the censorship, more concerned about liberal complaints on every minorly offensive things making this awful, source: google ads, recent controversies making companies bend over backwards.
If you're more concerned about political correctness than you are about corporatism, then your priorities are fucked.

Corporatism, in this case, will lead to widespread political correctness. Of that I am nearly certain.

edit: A bit of an addendum because it came to mind, the alternate choice in the election was Hillary Clinton, someone who supported the TPP.

The TPP was arguably worse, this issue crosses party lines, it would've happened either way.

I would like to point out as quite a lot of people seem to not understand.
ISPs are considered Natural Monopolies, which is a fancy way of saying that it is really expensive and inconvenient to initially build (say infrastructure) thus naturally encouraging a lack of competition.

Anybody attempting to argue that the government shouldnt regulate an ISP or that ISPs need "competition". Is somebody who probably would argue that a city needs more then one water service, or that the government shouldnt regulate a privately owned powerplant that offers electricity to half of a State.

Rip, the decision has been made and Net neutrality has been repelled. Of 12-14-17, I believe many companies and sources obviously still stand even grander causing FCC's decision to be reprimanded perhaps. Unsure on political short but hope something comes of change.
