Google lobbying and net neutrality

The Post discusses Google’s Eric Schmidt’s view of net neutrality and how Washington works.

As for Google’s relationship with Washington’s power structure, Schmidt said the tech industry is still not as strong as others in its lobbying representation on Capitol Hill, but that that’s fine with him. Google, and the tech industry, does better for itself when it focuses on ideas and innovation — and not politics, he said.

“The part of politics in Washington that’s ‘who you know’ and all that kind of stuff, it’s just not very interesting,” he said.
