We've been pointing out that the Kevin Martin and the FCC's opinion on certain subjects seems to change over the same issue depending on whether the issue deals with cable companies or telcos. For Martin, it seems the telcos can do no wrong, and the cable co's can do no right. Comcast has finally had enough and has sued the FCC over the questionable 30% cap that Martin proposed last year soon after granting yet another huge telco merger. Even worse, the 30% cap seems to have been based on questionable data and without any reasonable justification. It seems punitive more than anything else. Comcast is hoping that Martin will now have to explain himself in court.
