Today in Mobile

AT&T is enjoying lobbying efforts from some surprising organizations in its quest to acquire T-Mobile, CNET reports this morning. And the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation is the most recent (and most surprising) addition to that list. CNET’s piece fails to examing why some of those groups are involved, which is disappointing, but Sascha Segan had a great analysis of that angle a few days ago. As for GLAAD? An AT&T exec sits on the company’s board. So when you read about all this support AT&T is getting from unlikely bedfellows, keep in mind that there are hidden agendas and disingenuous tactics at play here. Let’s hope federal regulators keep that in mind too.
