FCC Network Neutrality Double Standard?

FCC wants Comcast and Time Warner to file more paperwork with details on their pending takeover plan for Adelphia, according to The Wall Street Journal. The details FCC needs are pretty elaborate and many of them justified. However, this little bit caught my eye…

The FCC’s information request also focuses on several delicate areas, including agreements for regional sports programming and “net neutrality” rights — essentially preventing companies from discriminating against Internet traffic. The latter request is notable because FCC Chairman Kevin Martin wasn’t particularly concerned about net neutrality in two recent Bell mergers.

Does anyone else see this as FCC’s double standard?
