The Department of Justice is taking Dish Network to trial for making 55 million illegal telemarketing calls, including millions to people on the national Do Not Call registry. The fine for even one such call can be up to $16,000. One estimate puts their potential fine at $24 billion including fines from 4 states. Dish Network itself is only worth $22 billion dollars so they would be basically “totally fucked.” The following is a leaked email chain between the CEO Joseph Clayton and his VP of operations, W. Erik Carlson.

Subject: Cool to break this law, right?

Hey Joe,

We wanna get some more customers by just calling random phone numbers out of nowhere and asking whoever picks up to subscribe to Dish Network. Standard stuff. Problem is there is this new national Do Not Call List thing. I guess it’s some law that would stop us from bothering people. Says if we call someone not on the list it’s $16,000. Wondering if you think it’s a big deal or not to just ignore that law so we can make some cash. Thoughts?

Hmm. Good q. I think go for it, that seems like one of those laws it’s not a big deal to break. Even if they catch us what will they do, cancel television? Yeah right, people love TV, it’s got all their sports and comedies and stuff. Like I always say, we’re too DISH to fail. Go ahead, call everyone.
