ABSTRACT
The article reports on the response of Kyle McSlarrow, president of the National Cable & Telecommunications Association, to cable-hostile regulatory stances of Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin Martin in the U.S. According to McSlarrow, the government intervention in the video-programming market is unnecessary because pay television is a competitive business. He added that Martin does not take a hands-off approach to video regulation.
