The article reports that U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman Kevin Martin's statement that cable television had met the statutory standards qualifying it for further regulation met bitter opposition from the cable industry. National Cable & Telecommunications Association President Kyle McSlarrow said there was no basis for Martin's belief that cable subscribers totaled the 70 percent of U.S. households required to meet the standard.
