How to win TV broadcasters' support for network neutrality

The answer is simple: abolish must-carry. With must-carry, broadcasters don't need network neutrality because they have something better: preferred access into every cable, telco, and satellite subscription home in America. Take away must-carry, and they'd be beating down the door of every member of Congress and FCC member to sanctify network neutrality as an inherent right of every American and as American as apple pie. Of course, I'm not saying taking away must-carry would be politically easy to do. But I believe the time has come to make this case.
