THREE-FOURTHS OF AMERICANS WANT CAMERAS IN THE SUPREME COURT;
OVERWHELMING MAJORITIES SUPPORT ADDITIONAL SCOTUS TRANSPARENCY MEASURES
New poll finds live video, live audio and online disclosures all favored by wide margins across ideological lines
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Americans want the Supreme Court to broadcast its hearings live on television and its justices to abide by a code of ethics, according to a national poll conducted by McLaughlin & Associates and released today by the Coalition for Court Transparency, a non-partisan alliance that advocates for a more open and accountable High Court.
Seventy-four percent of respondents would like the justices to allow news cameras to film the court’s proceedings and broadcast them live to the American people. Seventy-two percent say the court should at least broadcast live audio of the court’s hearings over the Internet and on the radio.
