ABSTRACT
The article reports on the comments of National Cable & Telecommunications Association president Kyle McSlarrow against U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman Kevin Martin. Because of Martin's complaints about cable television's rising rates and consumers' inability to buy channels on an individual basis, McSlarrow charges him to be an odd to the free-market outlook on telecommunications. McSlarrow added that Martin's agenda is an example of government micromanagement.
