    After approving NBC buyout, FCC Commish becomes Comcast lobbyist

    The news, reported this afternoon by the Wall Street Journal, The Hill, and Politico, comes after the hugely controversial merger of Comcast and NBC earlier this year. At the time, Baker objected to FCC attempts to impose conditions on the deal and argued that the "complex and significant transaction" could "bring exciting benefits to consumers that outweigh potential harms."

    Four months after approving the massive transaction, Attwell Baker will take a top DC lobbying job for the new Comcast-NBC entity, according to reports.

    This kind of crap really pisses me off. It sounds like pretty blatant corruption. **** like this should be illegal, and I'm truly amazed that it isn't already.
