Freedom to Link?

ZDNet had this great article last week that got me to thinking. Would I be comfortable with any intervention from a government body in the daily function of the internet? While I can understand the fear that is being generated by the possibility of carriers blocking sites based on ownership issues, I am squimmish (to say the least) just pondering how US government intervention could go terribly wrong. Visions and Ted Stevens and dance in my mind - and that's not a pretty picture. Am I paranoid, or does just a classic American?

What do you think?
