Example text

The most obvious reason for cameras, in the opinion of most of the media, is the “public’s right to know,” which is guaranteed by the First Amendment. Others argue that camera coverage would educate the American people on how the jurisprudence system works. The most important argument against allowing cameras in the courtroom is that the coverage may impact the trial itself and the defendant’s right to a fair trial. Elizabeth Semel, a prominent San Diego defense attorney, said she believes cameras change the performances of witnesses.

But if news were comprised solely of such planned events, then developing newscasts would be a simple affair. However, spontaneous news events burst forth at irregular intervals with alarming speed. In these situations, the newsroom must be able to dispatch a camera crew immediately. This invariably means pulling a news crew from another story at the last minute. Still, if all stations in a city covered the same planned and spontaneous events, there would be little difference among the newscasts.

But some people ask: Shouldn’t those who oppose such views have a right to use the airwaves to express their opinions as well? Pollsters tell us that about 20 percent of Americans strongly oppose any sort of government. How many of those people are capable of violence is, of course, unknown. But should those who feed that hatred of the government be allowed to espouse their views on radio and TV without allowing equal time for opposing views? The Constitution and the First Amendment do not refer to fairness in speech, just to its protection.
