FCC’s Martin Is PTC’s Hero

Jul 3, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Tim Winter, the Parents Television Council’s executive director in California, said that Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin J. Martin “has been our hero,” the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Martin, who has sought to cleanse television of indecent and offensive programming, has made life difficult for the cable industry with regulations that open up local pay TV markets to cable competitors and make it cheaper for independent programmers to lease cable channels, the newspaper says. Some people believe Martin is putting pressure on cable operators with regulatory moves in order to get them to clean up their programming, the newspaper notes.
