Jeffrey J. Greenbaum states in this article: "Particularly at the trial level, cameras can transform a courtroom...Certain witnesses may be less likely to testify, and others may be more likely - possibly for the wrong reasons - if they knew their testimony was to be on national television. Lawyers and even judges are not always above the temptation of playing to the five o'clock news. In a day when there are people seeking their '15 minutes of fame,' we should not let our courtrooms become the next nighttime TV reality show," he says.
