It is because the predominant catalyst for spreading misinformation is through the internet. When the volume is reduced through the regulation of bandwidth, so will the extent of the manipulation. This is assuming that it will be so simple, of course.

The thing is that less people will use the internet so casually, provided that this will truly make the internet more expensive to use (which I don't know at this point). This could very well result in people actually having lives outside of the internet, the gradual end of the rampant narcissism currently predominant in younger generations, and the end (or at least a moderate limitation) in the masses being manipulated through misinformation. Call me crazy, but this could work out for the best in the end.
