More on the media's lack of access to INS hearings
Howard Bashman has a post on North Jersey Media Group, Inc., et al. v. John Ashcroft, etc., et al., a case that a three-judge panel of the Third Circuit just heard oral arguments concerning the press's challenge to the blanket closure of INS hearings in post-9/11 terror detainee cases. He offers some interesting insights, and explains why the Supreme Court might ultimately review the issue raised in this case.
The AP story on the oral arguments can be found here.
