This Just In

On The Air This Week:


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? And if Justice Rehnquist was right, what does this mean for modern democracy? 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.
