Televise the Supreme Court

Nothing has focused as much attention on the Supreme Court since the 2000 Florida election recount case as last week’s arguments over the constitutionality of President Obama’s health care act. The outcome, expected this summer, will hang ominously over this year’s presidential campaign until then, and beyond.

Already the radio and television airwaves, the Internet, newspaper accounts and commentary are filled with descriptions of the exchanges between the lawyers arguing pro and con before the justices who will decide the fate of the controversial law. Most of these observations are second-hand, based on transcripts and on audio recordings only fairly recently permitted, because television cameras are barred.
