Left-wing media watchdog Media Matters for America accused Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai on Monday of retreating to Fox News to "avoid criticism" over the repeal of net neutrality, neglecting to tell readers he also appeared on several other programs.
FCC chairman Ajit Pai had argued repealing the rules would make broadband providers "offer".
Most notably, the repeal removes the Title II classification of broadband internet that put it in line with essential utilities like electricity.
ISPs will have to disclose changes they make because of deregulation.
"The internet's death will be slow", Greer said. That means no speeding up or slowing down connection speeds, and no blocking of specific websites.
Some small-business owners are anxious, too, that industry giants could pay to get an edge and leave them on an unfair playing field.
When fighting against the 2015 net neutrality rules, the ISPs said nearly in unison that they would prefer to leave net neutrality rules to Congress instead of the FCC.
"Net neutrality ensures equal access to online content regardless of who is providing or requesting information", Florian Schaub, an assistant professor at the University of MI who specializes in internet privacy, wrote in a paper recently published in the academic journal Media and Communication.

Net Neutrality made it illegal for internet providers to slow down and censor content.
"At the FCC, we have a transparency rule where every company in the USA has to disclose their business practices, and the Federal Trade Commission is empowered to take action against any company who engages in any anti-competitive conducts", Pai said.
Another misleading ISP claim is that they want to get rid of Title II, and not net neutrality rules in general.
And critics fear repealing them may see consumers charged extra for anything more than the most basic service.
"The American people know they can not trust their internet service providers to do the right thing and protect a free and open internet unless there are strict rules in place", Sen.
But net neutrality remains alive and well in Washington, thanks to a bi-partisan bill that was signed into law earlier this year.
Any changes are likely to happen slowly, as companies assess how much consumers will tolerate. Those programs allow consumers to access certain sites and services without the data to and from them applying to any monthly caps they may have.
There's also no mention in Pai's op-ed about how the two largest ISPs in the nation - Comcast and Spectrum (Charter, Time Warner Cable) - score incredibly low in both customer service and value from Consumer Reports.
Repealing the rules would be good for consumers, he added, because it would lift regulations that stopped some telecoms companies investing.
