THE REVOLVING DOOR IS FOR PATRIOTS  2:24 pm May 12, 2011

FCC Lady Who Approved Comcast Deal Handed Nice Comcast Job

by Jack Stuef

By 'private sector,' she means the spot where America is screwed.Federal Communications Commission commissioner Meredith Attwell Baker was so nice about letting Comcast buy NBC that Comcast offered her a job. Yay! We love happy endings! This must be a really good job, the kind that comes with a huge bonus for doing something like, oh, we don’t know, clearing the giant corporation over a tough regulatory hurdle, because Baker is leaving the Janet Jackson boob squad to take the position. Some people don’t like when this sort of thing happens, but those people should shut their stupid faces. Bureaucrats have to make bank too! And that’s why, at the same point in their careers, police officers should quit the force to go work for criminal gangs trying to help them escape the law. Everybody does it, right?

Comcast declined to comment, a company spokeswoman said.

Ms. Baker did not respond to several emails and phone calls for comment.

Huh? Why is that? Don’t they want to tell everyone how excited they are to be working together? It’s almost like there’s something wrong with doing a corporation a huge favor and immediately landing a cushy job with them.

If there’s one Founding Father this country adores, it’s Benedict Arnold, who had the sense when to stop doing public service work and cash in with the other side. George Washington, the poor bastard, was a chump. Arnold’s dedicated years working for the American public as a general totally absolve him of anything he did afterwords, right? [WSJ/Reason]

 

Hola wonkerados.

To improve site performance, we did a thing. It could be up to three minutes before your comment appears. DON'T KEEP RETRYING, OKAY?

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

I bet she feels just Comcastic!

johnnymeatworth May 12, 2011 at 3:31 pm

And we're getting Comcastigated!

Omophagist May 12, 2011 at 4:56 pm

Well, hopefully she still feels just as Comcastic*TM when her husband dies in a nasty autoerotic asphyxiation tryst with a rent boy and her son OD's on heroin! That way when after she loses everything and decides to kill herself by shoving both hands into the grinder of an In-Sink-Erator*TM and bleed out she can think to herself, hey, at least I screwed America over for money like a common syphillic street whore that was driven into that life b/c my father molested me.

Rotundo_ May 12, 2011 at 6:53 pm

Comgasmic? I think this goes beyond feeling Comcastic. That kind of money should put most folks in a perpetual state of bliss.

Not_So_Much May 12, 2011 at 2:27 pm

She dresses pretty conservatively for a whore.

Chillwaver May 12, 2011 at 2:32 pm

Looks like she won a GOP-sponsored shopping spree at Macy's.

MasterDebater May 12, 2011 at 2:32 pm

It's the wholesome-looking ones that are totally depraved kinkbots in bed. Always.

Not_So_Much May 12, 2011 at 2:41 pm

So, her 'Hammil' doo covers a tat that says, "Donkey punch here or gtfo!"?

El Pinche May 12, 2011 at 2:33 pm

You can dry your salty post-coital tears with her sweet stack o' Benjamins.

Hell, you could probably burn a pile of bills and then use the resulting heat to rapidly air-dry your post-coital tears.

She's wearing a Disco tank top underneath.

widestanceroman May 12, 2011 at 2:48 pm

Aww, it's so sweet how she borrowed her fat mom's dress for the photo.

It's only natural. Sektor was always a red.

Thank god. I thought all these phone company crooks had to wear that little pink dress.

OhNoGuy May 12, 2011 at 10:15 pm

It is critically important for an old whore to be well turned out.

Don't ask me how I know that.

Is she taking over for Meredith Viera? They won't have to change the titles.

I wonder what it's like to go through life with no sense of shame.

Not_So_Much May 12, 2011 at 2:39 pm

534 legislators (Gabby gets a pass) seem to be thriving with this mindset.

Plus, Cheney is doing it with NO FUCKING PULSE (which is pretty gangsta, to be honest).

You may have the occasional pang of guilt, but damn, it just washes down the drain in your marble shower with 50 nozzles directed for maximum pleasure and cleanliness. You might wonder what sort of world your kids will inherit, but those private schools really make a difference in getting your foot in the right doors. You might realize that money won't bring you happiness, but that 100 footer moored down in Florida distracts you pretty damned well.

baconzgood May 12, 2011 at 2:32 pm

"Ms. Baker did not respond to several emails and phone calls for comment."

We should all get a job with Comcast. We can tell them they we are going to show up "sometime between 9 A.M. and noon" and just show up at 3:00 P.M. and stay for 45 minutes and leave with nothing working.

WhatTheHolyHeck May 12, 2011 at 2:34 pm

Or wait until after 3:00 to cancel the workday out of the payroll system and claim it was never scheduled in there to begin with.

elviouslyqueer May 12, 2011 at 2:36 pm

"If the customer's not happy, Comcast is not happy."

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

BaldarTFlagass May 12, 2011 at 2:43 pm

"If the customer's unhappy, Comcast is gettin' all fappy."

elviouslyqueer May 12, 2011 at 2:40 pm

Also, 45 minutes? I thought Comcast's motto was "15 minutes and GTFO."

Barb May 12, 2011 at 2:50 pm

30 minutes is spent accepting personal calls on our cell phones and calling other employees and sipping from the Big Gulp, full of gin while we work.

elviouslyqueer May 12, 2011 at 3:14 pm

Our last installer was so stoned I could smell him from 20 yards away. And the sorry SOB didn't even have the decency to share. Customer service FAIL.

SorosBot May 12, 2011 at 3:14 pm

We can also have a secret stash of booze that we can use to become all pixilated at random times and become impossible to work properly.

You can tell she was qualified for the job, because she didn't qualify for Affirmative Action.

loulouroo May 12, 2011 at 2:33 pm

Yeah, um, no shit. And Billy Tauzin got a nice job lobbying for pharmaceuticals after he helped cram through the drug bill. Whores one and all!

phlox✔ May 12, 2011 at 2:34 pm

It's the American way, right? They've (all) been doing this for years.
We're just inured to the blatant quid pro quo at this level of 'government'.
Things like this used to be a little more nuanced but these days there's just no need.
No one really cares enough.

BaldarTFlagass May 12, 2011 at 2:37 pm

I could see this as natural behavior were she a holdover from the Bush years, but she was appointed by Obama. Way to make us pine for Colin Powell's son, Kable Kunt!!!

SayItWithWookies May 12, 2011 at 2:47 pm

Appointed by Dubya in 2009 — the last 20 days of the administration — according to ThinkProgress. So I guess she's ethically grandfathered. Be sure to count the silverware, FCC.

SorosBot May 12, 2011 at 2:54 pm

So that means Obama will be able to put in her replacement and the balance of power a bit. Does anyone know what the D/R spread is now? Hopefully we'll get more people who realize that saying fuck or showing a breast on-air doesn't actually hurt anybody instead of the prudes that run it now.

BaldarTFlagass May 12, 2011 at 2:59 pm

Huh, Wiki (I know not the most reliable source) sez "nominated for a seat on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) by President Barack Obama on June 25, 2009." Oh well, I strive for Christ-like perfection, but when I fail to achieve it, I will so admit with Christ-like humility.

SayItWithWookies May 12, 2011 at 3:12 pm

A few links later, it turns out that both accounts are right. She was appointed by Dubya and headed the program to send out coupons to people to help with the transition to digital television, and then President Obama appointed her as the minority party rep to the FCC. Also, she's married to the son of Republican Fredo James Baker III, unimaginatively named James Baker IV. http://voices.washingtonpost.com/posttech/2009/12

DustBowlBlues May 12, 2011 at 3:16 pm

Miss Manners says that Junior is used to denote a son named for dad. She goes on to say that use of III, IV etc. is just tasteless affection unless you're a monarch or the pope.

So fuck them and their affectation.

horsedreamer_1 May 12, 2011 at 2:38 pm

Is this prediction, or reporting?

I don't get Current on my gym's cable package — the only place I regularly watch cable, or tee-vee, for that matter — so I hope it's the former. & I hope it's… WRONG!

I'm not even predicting horse, just snarkin', but Republicans melt in the facty water, so I'm hoping not, and would follow Rachel anywhere.

Let's hope it ends just as well for her as it did the Pentagon lady who approved the flawed Boeing Tanker deal and then was fired/landed in jail because that's a (non sexual) happy ending.

MildMidwesterner May 12, 2011 at 2:40 pm

My telephone call to NBC has been on hold ever since it was purchased by Comcast.

Gopherit May 12, 2011 at 2:40 pm

Republican Federal Communications Commission commissioner Meredith Attwell Baker is planning to leave the agency for a job at Comcast Corp., according to people with knowledge of the matter.

Ah, in that case, completely understandable. Nothing to see here. Carry on.

BaldarTFlagass May 12, 2011 at 2:42 pm

Also: "She is married to the son of James Baker, who served as the Chief of Staff in President Ronald Reagan's first administration and in the final year of the administration of President George H. W. Bush."

Does anything more need be said?

mull_man May 12, 2011 at 2:48 pm

DustBowlBlues May 12, 2011 at 3:34 pm

I take it he got out of his contract by signing one of those agreements that he wouldn't appear on another channel for a few months?

He might actually do some good for Current if his show gets more teeth than he could have on MSNBC. As I recall, he left Countdown about 40 minutes after the Comcast deal.

prommie May 12, 2011 at 2:43 pm

This is the ultimate success for a staffer, a toadie, a Smithers. Long-time staffer rises to appointed head of some agency or another, spends 3 years, then retires to corner office working for some major player in the regulated industry. Job duties: taking old friends who still work in government out to play golf. Thats it, thats the whole job description.

JoshuaNorton May 12, 2011 at 2:48 pm

Meredith Attwell Baker was so nice about letting Comcast buy NBC that Comcast offered her a job.

The striking thing about this is she'll lie about why she got the job, and we'll all know she is lying, and she'll do it anyway. There's a point where actions tend to cross over from bravado into sociopathic illness.

Commcast/XFinity has been such an outstandingly ethical company though, with such upstanding practices as owning the station that shows most Phillies, Flyers and Sixers games and not letting dish networks or FIOS carry it, or the new XFinity ads where just by coincidence everyone only watches NBC shows, I cannot believe they would resort to bribery.

I don't know how they get away with this shit in the upper echelons. Us trench-dwellers, if one of us decides to leave govt to go to work for a contractor, have to recuse ourselves from any kind of contracting activity or anything else having to do with that contractor from the minute the decision is made. If someone was involved with the award of a big contract (or even one worth a few measly million) and then left and went to work for that contractor, the Air Force OSI would be up their ass with a microscope.

you know whenever something particularly unsavory comes up, it's followed by 'bush administration, bush era regulation, bush appointment, etc.'

like for instance the teri gross interview i'm listening to RIGHT NOW about for-profit colleges (see: bush admin created loopholes to allow for profit colleges to aggressively recruit / pay bonuses for recruitment, obama admin is having to clean up the mess).

High finance and bidness has re-entered the glorious wild west days with no fences or barriers (laws, impediments, strong hints that theft and murder are illegal) to keep them from prospering the living shit out of 'Murca. Once they rode tall steeds, now they ride mousy brunettes and Gulfstreams to fame and fortune.

Don't let that revolving door hit you on the ass; it's spinning mighty fast.

So if you're a Comcast puppet, does that mean you're connected to a cable…?

Now that would be one hell of a malfunction.

She should be in a cell next to Ensign. THAT's what we should be doing with Gitmo.

Hm. I knew there was something fishy about that Cabletown-NBC deal.

Forgive the lack of snark, but here's a petition requesting an investigation:

Actually the rule is this. I am V572625694. My son is"V572625694, Jr" if and only if he has the exact same first and middle names. His son with the same name is "V572625694 III." When I die, Jr becomes just "V572625694," and his son moves up to Jr status. If III has a kid with the same name while I'm alive, he is "V572625694 IV," but that doesn't happen too often for obvious reasons.

Plus, as you correctly point out, it's pretentious bullshit.

Hope that clears it up.

Why not just call him V572625695?
