Something stinks in FCC land

From today's Tom Taylor column at Radio-Info.com...

"Meredith Attwell Baker is leaving her five-year term on the FCC with three years to go, which creates work for the Obama White House (they must find a Republican nominee who’s acceptable to the GOP). The timing doesn’t look particularly good, since the FCC just approved Comcast’s gobble-up of NBC Universal. Baker herself didn’t say where she’d be going after she leaves the Portals on June 3. But the NAB was quick to congratulate her on her new gig as Senior VP of Government Affairs at Comcast."

This is exactly the kind of government to private sector move that smells to high heaven. Right after you approve their merger they hire you? Are you kidding me? Tom Taylor is being too kind when it says "it doesn't look particularly good."
