HBO exec: piracy of ‘Game of Thrones’ is a ‘compliment’

http://www.rawstory.com

Cameras in the courtroom would benefit court and public

We have conducted a series of public opinion studies on the issue over the past few years and most recently found that 93 percent of likely voters say “the workings of the Supreme Court should be more open and transparent.” This sentiment spans Democrats, Republicans, and Independents alike.
