    Jacob Kastrenakes, writing for The Verge:

    Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon published blog posts this morning responding to the backlash they’ve been receiving since Congress voted to revoke a strong set of internet privacy rules that would have prevented internet providers from using or sharing their customers’ web browsing history without permission. The companies take different approaches when responding, but the takeaway from all three is that they think customers should stop worrying.

    Ah, yes, trust the giant company, what could go wrong?

    Well Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon seem like completely trustworthy sources so I don't think we have anything to worry about

    When has a large company ever not acted in my own best interest? It's not like they are soul-less money driven greed machines.

    Yeah, nice try, but no.

    It's strange that they want us to trust them when there have been articles where these same companies are cited as lobbying for the repeal of browsing security.

    As the great Yoda would say "Trust them, I can't!"
