"McCain a la Carte Bill Expected Soon"
The Hill, May 10, 2006
By Alexander Bolton

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is planning to introduce legislation on
cable television programming that is expected to put him at odds with
several of the nation's largest Christian television networks and
could complicate his effort to woo social conservatives for the 2008
presidential election.

Specifically, McCain is expected to unveil a bill this week that would
give cable companies regulatory incentives to offer their customers
content on a channel-by-channel basis, which is known as 'a la carte'
programming because of its resemblance to restaurant menus that price
entrees and side orders separately.
