This is not a new position for the administration, which has always supported an open internet. President Obama made this clear at a town hall when he traveled to Shanghai.
"The President has, strong beliefs about the universal rights of men and women throughout the globe. Those don't -- those aren't carved out for certain countries. That's why the President answered the way he did in a town hall in Shanghai about the importance of that freedom," said Gibbs.
