The White House has appointed Kevin Martin chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. Martin, 38, has been a member of the FCC since 2001 and has voted against outgoing chairman and fellow Republican Michael Powell on several key issues. He also has emerged as an energetic critic of broadcast indecency, proposing heavy fines and calling for cable to institute a family-friendly programming tier.
