A week ago, the Guild publicly called for SCOTUSblog, the website covering the Supreme Court, to get the press credentials it has been denied. This week, the New York Times joined a growing chorus of media voices also supporting SCOTUSblog. The arguments against credentials, "are tenuous at best," the editorial board writes. "Litigating is not lobbying, but, even so, the committee has credentialed, among others, foreign journalists from state-run publications whose countries routinely lobby. And (SCOTUSblog publisher) Tom Goldstein has erected firewalls to assure that the firm’s work does not editorially influence the blog. The committee should reconsider its edict. Professional standards are necessary, but, by any measure, Scotusblog meets them. Its importance is demonstrated by its audience, which is not just top journalists and members of the public. According to the site’s internal data, Scotusblog’s single biggest user is the Supreme Court itself."
