This is interesting for several reasons. Some cat got up in Supreme Court yesterday and said, "I rise on behalf of the vast majority of the American people who believe that money is not speech and corporations are not people and our democracy should not be for sale to the highest bidder. Overturn Citizens United. Keep the cap in McCutcheon. The people demand democracy." So, although I do not believe that it is good form to interrupt other peoples' oral arguments, I must concede that the fellow has a point. What is really important here is that this video of the Supreme Court. There is no reason that this should be the only video of the Court. Proceedings held in secret are suspect proceedings, and proceedings that cannot be recorded, in 2014, are not public in any meaningful sense.

This was a most interesting post. I saw it first through you but then did see it in the newspaper. The story sank like a stone but should have evoked editorials galore.
