I wonder if this has more to do with selling papers than the "public's right to know. If the paper wants to send a stringer to report the news then they should do so. To me having cameras in all the court room is just providing material for another useless cable TV network.

I couldn't even get my transistor radio into my high school English class.

Hooray taxtired, we agree on something. Justice is blind, unless you have money!

Justice is always blind when you pay off the right people. Or have the status. Example: Justin Bieber flying across International borders with drugs.

Lets put them behind the closed doors of ALL government and school board sessions. It is time the public knows what is happening.

Bill, that was Lance Ito's fault, not the cameras. The jury decided that crime was the fault of a bloody glove and a knife, not Simpsons. I'll never figure that one out.

One example of cameras in the courtroom is the OJ Simson murder trial. That worked out well with the presiding judge playing more to the TV cameras and media than he did to the trial at hand.

Put a webcam in the boss's office at the Leader Herald so the grunts can see what he does all day.

Solarguy, you have a lot company at the bottom of the low-information barrel. Pray tell, how can the media 'possibly' distort and distract more than they do NOW? Progressives, most notably the Media, insist they have the right to know everything about everybody, so, have they finally changed their minds or what? My my, what an inconvenient question.

The trouble with any law, it deems circumstances the same for everything, but every court case is different. The decision should be that of the judge, who knows the conditions of each individual case. If the presence of a camera clicking away would distract from the administration of justice, key witnesses might be extremely timid, the defendant might like the publicity, then keep cameras out.

Arm everyone with cameras, but don't allow cameras that take more than seven pictures.

I'm not a fan of cameras in the courtroom. To me it adds a level of distraction and the possibility of media distortion.
