The Boys’ Club

I guess some things never change:

According to today’s Washington Post (“You Can Tell a Republican by His Stripes,” 12/17/04) Viacom’s Gail McKinnon sent an e-mail this week to offices in the U.S. House of Representatives regarding a job opening in Viacom’s government relations department. The e-mail calls for a male, Republican to fill the open position and reads as follows: “Importance: High We need to hire a junior lobbyist/PAC manager. Attached is a job description. Salary is $85-90K. Must be a male with Republican stripes.”

Good to see that the whole “equal opportunity” thing is still alive and well over at Viacom, eh?
