Court TV lobbies senator

Court TV is urging indicted Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas) to allow the cable net to cover her trial.

In a letter to Hutchison Thursday, Court TV topper Steven Brill said he’s learned the Texas senator’s attorneys requested the trial be closed to the cable web.

“I find that difficult to understand in light of your clearly articulated views about the injustice of the prosecution and your efforts to make that argument to the people of your state,” wrote Brill. “Having Court TV at your trial affords your constituents the opportunity to see the entire trial. Not soundbites. Not some anchorman’s or editor’s spin. I assume that this is exactly what you want.”

A Hutchison spokesman said the Texas judge presiding over the case has ruled against allowing Court TV to cover the case.
