Net neutrality lede

An article I found recently, while from a… questionable source, actually had a pretty decent lede. It answers the who, what, when, and how. It leaves out the where and why because the where is irrelevant (it’s the whole internet) and the why is a much longer story than the lede can provide.

I think this is a good lede because it is only two sentences on four lines, but you get the main point of net neutrality getting repealed soon. Now this isn’t a perfect lede, in fact I would say that it is rather far from one. The lede implies, at least to me, that ISPs and cable companies are malicious and instinctively going to take advantage of the situation, which is not completely true. At least they get the important information right.
