Deserving each other

John Ashcroft is flacking for the National Association of Broadcasters against the Sirius-XM merger. Now the Wall Street Journal reports that Ashcroft first offered his services to XM. Skunk.

    More proof that our political system is corrupt. The National Association of Broadcasters has enough cash to spread around DC to get anything done. The deal will be killed because of dishonest politicians.

    Is anyone really surprised that Ashcroft would pull such a stunt? So much for being moral, religious God-fearing man.

    After Ashcroft lost that Congressional race to the dead guy why has anyone continued to pay him serious attention?

    “Now the Wall Street Journal reports that Ashcroft first offered his services to XM.” In other words, he offered his services to one side and then to the direct competition. The competition bit.

    This is a very common business practice. Consultants do it, Ad sellers do it, PR, other lawyers, software companies, even some broadcasters, journalists, and editors may have done it.

    Ashcroft may be a skunk but this can’t be why.
