ABSTRACT
The article reports on the statement by U.S. Representative Joe Barton that Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Kevin Martin is not anti-cable although he seems to be looking for problems within the cable industry that do not exist. According to the author, Martin has been harassing the industry after cable operators rejected Martin's request that they sell channels on an individual basis.
