C-SPAN Seeks to Air Supreme Court Healthcare Arguments

The C-SPAN network, which has tried without success for more than 20 years to bring the Supreme Court into the TV era, is trying again.

A day after the high court announced it would hear more than five hours of oral arguments in March to decide the constitutionality of President Obama’s healthcare law, C-SPAN asked permission to televise the proceeding.

“We believe the public interest is best served by live television coverage of this particular oral argument,” Brian P. Lamb, C-SPAN’s chief executive, said in a letter to Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. “It is a case which will affect every American’s life, our economy and will certainly be an issue in the upcoming presidential campaign.”
