We Don't Need to Mandate "a la Carte"... It Already Exists

Wow, I am really blown away by Earlier today, I mentioned how I discovered it thanks to Mike Musgrove's Washington Post story about how more and more people are canceling their cable and satellite subscriptions altogether and using alternative video platforms -- Hulu, iTunes, Netflix, XBox, etc. -- to watch their favorite shows. Anyway, if you go to's "Show Finder" site, you will find a complete inventory of all the major television programs you can find online right now. And that list just continues to grow and grow in both directions -- in terms of the number of shows and the number of platforms where you can get them.

OK, so why again do we need to mandate a la carte regulation for cable and satellite?
