ABOUT THIS EPISODE

The New York Times’ Adam Liptak, who has been covering the Supreme Court for over 15 years, is one of the few reporters who has seen the Supreme Court in its best and not-so-best incarnations. In the wake of multiple decisions in the past two years, starting with Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization (which overturned Roe v. Wade) to the recent partial Presidential immunity decision in Trump v. US and ethics concerns involving Justices Neil Gorsuch and Clarence Thomas, the Supreme Court has been under intense scrutiny. Covering the Supreme Court and making it “accessible to readers” requires accuracy and candor, not to mention audience sensitivity and a thick skin. In this April 2023 discussion on Hearsay Culture Radio, Dave and Adam thoroughly explore recent controversies surrounding the Supreme Court, the complexities of judicial reporting and public perception, and the impact of AI on judicial processes.

 

“There’s an enormous discussion that obviously is well beyond the judiciary and reporting about the judiciary, involving balanced reporting and objectivity, which a lot of people in communications, in media scholarship, say is basically a false promise that objectivity because we are human beings from the get-go is really not the standard that the standard instead should be accuracy from the press. Not objectivity, but accuracy.” 

-Adam Liptak

 

“Presidents come and go, but the Supreme Court goes on forever.”

-William Howard Taft
