Guess who is the guy who appointed like a dozen ex **AA people and lawyers into the DoJ? I'll give you a hint, his name starts with Oba

Having some makes sense, as it's good to have all view points at least mentioned, and these guys are the ones that know the intricacies best.
Are you defending that? That's a pretty specious argument for this situation.

I'll agree that its good to have all viewpoints, so show me the dozen guys from places like EFF that he appointed as well.

I'm defending some. Like, 1. And others that know the viewpoints but are open minded. Just because someone was an attorney for the RIAA doesn't make him an automatic company-loving dickhead. But, from what I've seen, those doing hiring don't do a great job sorting those out.

But it's good to have some. Why do companies that run ads hire their ad managers from the companies they sell to? Because those are the people that know that industry best and can come up with the best solutions for them. It's not uncommon to see people go from P&G to the P&G account at Facebook or Microsoft. There's no fear that they'll be too nice or too soft or too lenient on their old company, because they hire people that are industry people, not company people.
The **AAs are industry groups though. It's not the same thing.
