THE GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO

REGULATE THE INTERNET, AND

NOT EVERYBODY LIKES THE

IDEA.

THAT'S WHY THE F.C.C. IS

GOING TO COURT TO DEFEND

THEIR NEW RULES.

OPPONENTS SAY IT IS YET

ANOTHER BIG GOVERNMENT POWER

GRAB, AND THEY'RE FIGHTING

BACK.

PAUL STRAND HAS MORE.

Reporter: IT'S CALLED

NET NEUTRALITY.

AND POSSIBLY DO THINGS LIKE

GIVE PRIORITY TO SOME

WEBSITES OR SIGNALS OVER

OTHERS.

GIGI'S ADVOCACY GROUP IS

PUSHING THAT NEUTRALITY

BECAUSE --

THE BIG CONTENT

PROVIDERS, BIG HOLLYWOOD

STUDIOS, BIG NETWORKS, WILL

BE ABLE TO PAY FOR THEIR

WEBSITES TO COME UP FASTER,

FOR THEIR VIDEOS TO HAVE

HIGHER QUALITY OF SERVICE.

AND THE REST OF US WILL BE

LEFT IN THE SLOW LANE.

Reporter: BUT

OPPONENTS, INCLUDING MANY

CONSERVATIVES, SAY THE NET

IS WORKING JUST FIND.

THEY WORRY NET NEUTRALITY

CAN TURN INTO HEAVY

GOVERNMENT CONTROL, RUINING

THE WILD FRONTIER.

MOST AMERICANS THINK THAT

THE GOVERNMENT DOESN'T WORK

SO HOT, AND THE INTERNET

DOES.

SO WHY ARE WE PUTTING THE

GOVERNMENT IN CONTROL.

WE'RE TRYING TO SAY NO.

LET IT FLURRY RISH WITHOUT

GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS.

Reporter: SETON MOTLEY

FEARS OBAMA CARE.

MOTLEY SAYS THE MAIN PUSHER

IS MARK.

HE SET UP NET NEUTRALITY

TO DIVEST THEM FROM

CONTROL.

WHAT HE WANTS TO DO, AS WE

SAID, DRIVE OUT ALL OF THE

MONEY AND HAVE GOVERNMENT

REPLACE IT.

Reporter: BOTH CONGRESS

AND THE COURTS TOLD THE

F.C.C. IT CAN'T REGULATE THE

INTERNET, BUT THAT DIDN'T

STOP IT.

HE BELIEVES THIS IS ACTUALLY

WORSE THAN OBAMA CARE.

THIS

IS A WORSE POWER

GRAB THAN OBAMA CARE.

AT LEAST THE HOUSE AND

SENATE VOTED ON OBAMA CARE

AND PASSED IT AND THE

PRESIDENT SIGNED IT.

OBAMA CARE FOR THE

INTERNET IS OVERWROUGHT.

WHEN THERE IS NO -- WHEN

THERE IS A CORPORATE

GATEKEEPER DECIDING WHO GETS

TO SEND WHAT MESSAGE AND TO

WHOM AND WHO GETS IT FASTER

AND SLOWER, THAT COULD ALLOW

AMAZING THINGS TO HAPPEN.

Reporter: MOTLEY WARNS

A HEAVY HANDED GOVERNMENT

WILL RUIN THE INTERNET.

NET NEUTRALITY IS

SOCIALISM FOR THE INTERNET.

IT ENSURES EVERYBODY EQUAL

AMOUNTS OF EVERYTHING.

IF YOU WANT TO DOWNLOAD A

GUY'S M.R.I. WHILE HE IS

DYING...

Reporter: PAUL STRAND,

CBN NEWS, WASHINGTON.

Gordon: DEPENDING ON

WHICH SIDE YOU ARE ON THIS

DEBATE, YOU EITHER VIEW IT

AS A GOVERNMENT POWER GRAB

AND LEGISLATION WHERE THERE

IS NO NEED FOR LEGISLATION.

ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE

COIN, YOU HAVE PEOPLE WHO

SAY WHAT IS GOING TO PREVENT

A CABLE PROVIDER SAYING WE

ARE NOT GOING TO GIVE YOU

ACCESS TO THIS BECAUSE IT

CUTS OR PROFIT MARGIN.

WE HAVE ALREADY SEEN IT BY

T-MOBILE IN GERMANY WHERE

THEY BLOCKED ACCESS TO SKYPE

BECAUSE SKYPE WAS CUTTING

INTO THEIR LONG DISTANCE

FEE.

THIS IS GOING TO THE

COURTS.

AND ON THE LEFT THEY'RE

SAYING THERE IS NOT ENOUGH

REGULATION, AND THEY'RE

SUING FOR EVEN MORE.

ON THE RIGHT, THEY'RE

BLOCKING IT ON THE BASIS

THAT CONGRESS HAS NOT GIVEN

THE F.C.C. POWER TO REGULATE

THIS.

SO IT IS GOING TO BE UP TO,

YET AGAIN, THE COURT SYSTEM

TO DECIDE WHERE WE GO WITH

THIS.

THERE IS SOME POTENTIAL

RELIEF FOR CONSUMERS THAT IF

THESE RULES DO GO THROUGH,

IS IT THEN STILL LEGAL FOR

YOUR CABLE COMPANY OR YOUR

INTERNET PROVIDER TO CHARGE

TIERS FOR FASTER SERVICE.

IF YOU PAY MORE, DO YOU GET

FASTER BAND WIDTH.

THAT MAY BE OPEN TO QUESTION

AT THE REST OF THE DAY.

LEE WEBB HAS THE REST OF THE

TOP STORIES.

Reporter: GORDON,

POSITIVE ECONOMIC NEWS IS

EASING CONCERNS OF A

DOUBLE-DIP RECESSION HERE IN

THE U.S.

OVERSEAS STOCK MARKETS

THE SINGLE BEST MONTH FOR

THE MARKET IN 25 YEARS.

THE INVESTORS ARE ENCOURAGED

BLESSINGS DOWN THE ROAD.

CHRISTMAS COMING EARLY TO

COMMUNITY.

KEITH HAS PAINTED A MURAL

THAT SHOWS THE RESPONSE OF

CHRIST.

Reporter: THIS IS NOT

YOUR TYPICAL ROAD SHOW AND

IT WON'T FIT IN MOST HOMES.

KEITH GOODSON HAS CREATED A

GIANT OIL ON CANVAS

MASTERPIECE TO INSPIRE US TO

THINK ANEW

ABOUT THE BIRTH

OF CHRIST.

IF YOU EXPERIENCE A

MURAL, YOU'RE EXPERIENCING

SOMETHING LARGER THAN

YOURSELF.

YOU BECOME PART OF THE

PAINTING, IF YOU WOULD.

Reporter: A TEAM OF

VOLUNTEERS HELPED TO RAISE

THE MURAL SLOWLY AND

GENTLY.

ONCE IN PLACE, THEY STAND

AND TAKE IN THE PAINTING

THAT COMPELS FROM SO MANY

DIFFERENT ANGLES.

IT STARTS WITH THE PROPHET

ISAIAH.

HE IS LOOKING INTO THIS

PROPHETIC VISION, AND HE IS

SEEING HOW PEOPLE T FROM

ALL GENERATIONS, ALL

CULTURES, ARE COMING TO THIS

ONE MOMENT IN TIME WHERE THE

BIRTH IS BEING VIEWED.

Reporter: GOODSON

PAINTED JOSEPH IN THE

CENTER.

HE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO LOOKS

STRAIGHT AT YOU FROM

WHEREVER YOU STAND.

HE IS HOLDING OUT AN OIL

LAMP, AND HE IS OFFERING IT

TO YOU, AND SAYING, HERE,

TAKE.

Reporter: GOODSON NAMED

HIS WORK "LIGHT OF THE

LIFE," IN THE HOPES THAT ALL

WILL BE DRAWN TO THE LIGHT.

Reporter: I GOT A

CHANCE TO SEE THAT PIECE OF

ART AND IT IS BEAUTIFUL.

THE ST. LOUIS CARDINALS

RALLIED NOT ONCE, BUT

TWEEZE.

TWICE.

THE CARDINALS WERE DOWN TO

THEIR LAST STRIKE WHEN DAVID

FREESE HIT THE BALL TO TIE

THE GAME.

LANCE BERK MAMAN ANSWERED

WITH A GAME-TYING SINGLE,

AND THAT SET THE STAGE FOR

FREESE TO HIT A LEADOFF

HOMERUN IN THE 11th.

FREESE

IS FROM

THE ST. LOUIS

AREA, AND NOW HE IS THE HOME

TOWN HERO.

GAME SEVEN OF THE WORLD

SERIES IN ST. LOUIS

TONIGHT.

A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE SAYING

IT REMINDED THEM OF GAME SIX

OF THE '75 SERIES, CARLTON

FISK HITTING THAT

GAME-WINNING HOMERUN.

I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE

PREDICTING THE CARDINALS

WILL WIN GAME SEVEN.

Gordon: WE'LL SEE.

I THOUGHT THE GAME WAS OVER

WHEN JOSH HAMILTON HIT HIS

HOMERUN, BUT I STAYED UP FOR

THE END.

COLD HERE.

WHAT WE CAN DO FOR THOSE WHO
