First Senators Grassley and Schumer testified. Then judges, attorneys and television executives testified about the use of cameras in the courtrooms of various federal courts. Among the topics they addressed were the potential value of public access to federal judicial proceedings through television coverage, the reluctance of the U.S. Supreme Court to televise coverage of oral arguments, ways in which news media might use television footage and visual imagery, and First Amendment issues. They also talked about past requests by news organizations to open proceedings to cameras, potential types and numbers of viewers, and different venues where the public might witness various proceedings, as well as potential disadvantages to the presence of cameras. close
