I guess I was a little too snarky. My point was that, assuming that space at the hearings cannot be unlimited, there has to be some method to decide who gets in and who doesn’t. The court chose one method. I would be more than pleased to hear suggestions for others. I don’t say what the court did was the best way, but it was what they came up with. Again–suggestions?
I agree. The court had to come up with some sort of plan that would allow coverage without being overwhelmed. This is the primary reason behind press passes. It is to provide a balance between allowing media coverage and still carry on the trial that the press is covering.]]>
