Internet Cop (How do media marxists browbeat FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski into capitulation?)
Reason ^ | March 2011 | Peter Suderman

On the reason.com website, there is an article titled "Internet cop", which is 5 long pages.

In it, it lists some interesting things that should be discussed on their own.

Despite its relative newness and its radical ideas, Free Press has had an outsized influence on the net neutrality debate. It has a former staffer in the FCC chairman’s office: In June 2009, Jen Howard left her job as press director for Free Press to become Genachowski's press secretary. The group also benefited from its longstanding alliance with MoveOn.org, a netroots giant with massive influence on progressive politics.

Free Press has used its influence to push the FCC toward the strictest regulations possible. By opposing Genachowski's initial rule proposal as too lax, the coalition made it clear that only the heaviest regulatory burden would do. And Free Press hasn't been afraid to turn its fire on the chairman. In July the group created a mocked-up "Wanted" poster using a photo of Genachowski's face and encouraged activists to post it "all over Chicago" during an FCC meeting there. FCC insiders say the group's influence is strongly felt. According to Commissioner Baker, the chairman "is under tremendous pressure from the netroots base not to compromise on net neutrality."

Addressing just the title “how do the Marxists browbeat” there’s a hint of a suggestion in this story that it’s “by traditional means”, to wit: The Transfer of Bodily Fluids.
