Holding Court About The High Court
Guests: Joe Mathewson, Greg Stohr
Host: Sam Litzinger
This week on "This Just In!" - In describing the tense and often secretive relationship between the Supreme Court and the press, Justice William Rehnquist once said, "There's a big difference between what you do and what we do - we don't need you." In the age of the internet and the 24/7 news cycle, is it safe to assume that this institution's long-enjoyed age of insulation from the media's glare is coming to an end?

Joe Mathewson, author of The Supreme Court and the Press: The Indispensable Conflict, dives into these questions and discusses the dynamic between the Court and those who cover it with Bloomberg News Supreme Court correspondent Greg Stohr.
