Cupcake-Gate at the FCC
Federal Communications Commission officials busy working on net neutrality, the pending Comcast-NBC deal and other issues got a sweet treat Wednesday afternoon, when AT&T Inc. representatives did their annual holiday cupcake drop-off throughout the building.
AT&T dropped off about 127 dozen cupcakes throughout the agency, according to a delivery list acquired by Public Knowledge, a digital-rights public interest group that’s been heavily lobbying on the net neutrality issue this week.
That’s roughly $3,700 worth of cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcake, a gourmet cupcake store.
“We’re pro-open Internet and pro-cupcake,” and FCC spokeswoman said.
