Indeed.. but the current set up is absurd. We have media sitting in the gallery not allowed to record and we then rely on their observations to tell us what is going on. Why not just introduce filmed courts that stream onto the internet?
How many people are going to want to sit and watch the entire proceedings as they happen? We're still going to need journalists to precis the day's events - and they're restricted to telling us what happened, it's not as if they're allowed to embellish it while the trial is going on.
