‘Allow cameras in federal courts and U.S. Supreme Court’ – IOTW Report

Sharyl Attkisson – Senators Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) together with five of their Senate colleagues recently re-introduced legislation that would allow cameras in federal courtrooms.

The legislation represents a bi-partisan effort to permit media coverage of trial and appellate cases in federal courts, including the Supreme Court of the United States.

In much the same way that C-SPAN fostered a greater understanding of the legislative process and improved transparency in Congress, allowing cameras in federal courtrooms would contribute to a better understanding of the American judicial system. This bill accomplishes that all while keeping in place privacy protections for witnesses and jurors
