Open Letter to the FCC

In letter sent to the Federal Communications Commission on Thursday, Free Press asked the four remaining commissioners to pledge not to seek employment with either AT&T or T-Mobile, whose multibillion merger is now under review at the FCC.

The request follows the departure of FCC Commissioner Meredith Atwell Baker, who abandoned her position to become a lobbyist for Comcast – after voting to approve that company’s merger with NBC Universal just months earlier. The House Government Oversight Committee has launched an inquiry into the circumstances surrounding Baker’s departure. Her last official day at the Commission is Friday, June 3.
