Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia says he hasn’t changed his mind about allowing television cameras in courtrooms. In an on camera appearance for a C-Span series called “Students and Leaders,” the justice said his opposition to televising Supreme Court hearings stemmed from a belief it would result in the “miseducation of the American people.” He was even more opposed to televising criminal trials. “To make entertainment out of people’s legal troubles is quite sick.” (4/10/08)
