Re: McAdams On: News Puppetry
If the courts want the news media to not use puppets to make them a laughing stock for disallowing audio/video coverage of important trials, then they should allow the cameras to roll. These are public corruption trials and the public has a aright to have them P-U-B-L-I-C, so either move them to the Civic Center or let the cameras in the courtroom.
Kudos to the TV station who did this---it's about time we saw the news media be creative in exposing cover-ups instead of being a part of them.
