Put a lock on the revolving door

FCC commissioners are supposed to work for the public not trade their positions and votes for cushy jobs in the industry they are trusted to regulate. After her yes vote on the NBC/Comcast merger, Meredith Attwell Baker will start collecting her pay from Comcast. Something is seriously wrong here. Are there no rules against this?

        For the most part, FCC commissoners are lawyers who are very well politically connected when appointed. They don't know jack sh*t about communications or the broadcast industry.
