Television in the Courtroom? most Definitely!

It was all the fault of television! Some observers of the Zimmerman trial felt like it was a real miscarriage of justice for the whole soap opera to be played out on TV.  Too many opinionated broadcasters, radio show hosts, columnists, and the public at large just had way too many opinions and disagreements. How can you get a fair trial like that they say?

But how wrong they  are. If there’s a problem in the American judicial system, it’s because of all the secrecy. On both the federal and state level,  judges routinely affect the final verdict by their desire to keep many of the decisions out of the public view.  Open the doors up, and let fresh air and sunshine come in I say. That’s the focus of my new column, now posted. Take a look at my thoughts and see what you think. You can read the column now by going to the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.
