“Most of the American people would see 15-second takeouts, and they wouldn’t be characteristic,” U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia tells C-SPAN’s Brian Lamb in an interview to be broadcast this Sunday. Lamb has long championed cameras in courtrooms including the Supreme Court — and Scalia has vigorously opposed them. He says it would “miseducate” people about proceedings that typically involve “dull stuff that only a lawyer could understand or be interested in.” Is there a First Amendment issue? Scalia says it has “nothing to do” with whether cameras belong in the courtroom.
