Should justice be televised?
The head of Sky News has argued in a new Guardian article that justice must be televised as allowing TV cameras in court would help restore public faith in criminal proceedings. Sky news has been campaigning for TV cameras to be allowed in court for the past year. John Ryley argues that the upcoming prosecutions of five men accused of abusing the parliamentary expenses system should be televised as the judge in the case has said the matter is "of intense public interest". Televising proceedings would help restore the loss of confidence in parliament and politics and ensure that judges who are seen are 'out of touch' and 'liberal' need not escape the spotlight.
