Colbert had asked Breyer about the Supreme Court’s camera ban, questioning why “we can’t watch you if the Supreme Court repeatedly rules we can be watched by the government.”
His argument doesn’t hold water. Yes, private court cases involving individuals and other individuals can remain free of cameras, but cases that change the very way the country works, well, sorry… there is a public interest to see exactly what is going on.
This is just another example of the kind of law that will be overturned once the people start paying more attention.
We’ll just put that one right at the top of our to-do list, thank you!
