FCC Commissioner Takes Job At Comcast Months After She Voted To Approve Its Deal With NBC Universal

From TechDirt:

A lot of folks are shaking their heads after learning that FCC commissioner Meredith Attwell Baker is leaving her post to take a lobbying job at Comcast just a few months after she voted to approve Comcast’s massive purchase of NBC Universal. Now, let’s be clear: there’s nothing illegal in her taking this job. While she can’t lobby the FCC for two years, she can lobby Congress or other parts of the government. And, it doesn’t mean that she’s corrupt at all. But it’s this kind of move that makes people trust our government less and highlights why so many people believe that our government is corrupt.

    And that, boys and girls, is how we avoid a libel suit… even if we have to keep our fingers crossed behind our backs while we write.
