Cord Cutting Isn’t Real and Will Destroy the Internet

The media is at it again. Some are claiming that cord cutting isn’t a thing. Others are saying that cord cutters are going to break the internet. Joel and I dissect a couple of articles and a recent Deloitte study that attempts to support these opposing narratives. We also take a look at some streaming services that aren’t Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime. We also lead off with the Senate valuing your ISP’s profits more that your privacy.
