From Above The Law
KITV reporter, Daryl Huff has a TV reporter’s view of camera’s in the courtroom.
“…I report for television — KITV4 News, the ABC affiliate in Honolulu, to be specific. I don’t cover many stories in federal district court anymore, because the court won’t let me bring in my tools: a camera and microphone.
This really pisses me off….
My station is actually better than most at covering federal court. At least we try. I am frequently the only television reporter standing outside the courthouse door, waiting with my cameraman for our 20-second shot of a defendant or plaintiff.”
