UPDATE: More on Rosen's involvement here.

During Tuesday's Senate hearing on the Ticketmaster/Live Nation merger, I thought that woman peering out from behind Irving Azoff and Michael Rapino looked awfully familiar. And sure enough, James Love of The Huffington Post now reports that Hilary Rosen has been hired by the mega-corps to push the merger forward.

Rosen, you may recall, was the longtime head of the Recording Industry Association of America, the major labels' lobbying group, and it was under her watch that the record companies began suing thousands of their own customers for downloading music on the Net.

Couldn't find a better person to forward the notion that the merger is good for consumers, could you?
