The Federal Communications Commission is making a renewed push to pass net neutrality rules to keep the internet free and open. This week Money Talking regular contributors Rana Foroohar of Time magazine and Joe Nocera of the New York Times examine whether broadband internet service should be regulated like a utility, similar to power, water or telephone service. It's about money, access and how much we'll pay to use the web. Then, a look at what some are calling an especially frothy tech scene. Nocera and Foroohar weigh in on Facebook's $19 billion acquisition of the messaging app WhatsApp and the imminent IPO from King, the creator of the ubiquitous cell phone game Candy Crush Saga.
