This isn’t exactly a shock, but it hasn’t been very long since the merger between NBC and Comcast took place. People usually have the courtesy to wait a little while longer than a few months before they jump ship.
Meredith Attwell Baker, one of the two Republican Commissioners at the Federal Communications Commission, is planning to resign and become a lobbyist for the cable giant Comcast-NBC Universal.

She had argued that the merger had “the potential to bring exciting benefits to consumers that outweigh potential harms.”
Yes, the potential to bring exciting benefits to Meredith Baker and the corporate overlords who will be employing her.
