Request to Approve Health Care Broadcast

A long list of news organizations have asked the Supreme Court to release, for broadcast, the Justices' oral announcements of the coming decision on the constitutional of the federal health care law. In the letter sent by the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press the news outlets explain:
“There is a strong interest nationwide in the Court’s opinion and any comments by a member of the Court that may accompany its announcement. Such access would allow the public to be informed of the Court’s ruling in a timely manner.”
However, it appears the chance for the court to accommodate such a request is remote to nonexistent. SCOTUS Blog reports.
