CNET: "Al Franken seeks Net neutrality support at SXSW
Sen. Franken sat down with Marguerite Reardon, from CNET, at South by Southwest to talk about net neutrality and the future of the internet.
"let's not let the government sell us out. Let's fight for Net neutrality. Let's keep Austin weird. Let's keep the Internet weird. Let's keep the Internet free."
