The Daily Show Plays Sound Bites from SCOTUS Arguments

January 29th, 2012

When the Supreme Court first started posting audio last year, I was enthused. I created, what I called a FantasyCAST for Snyder v. Phelps, which excerpted sound bites from arguments. I privately mused whether someone would use these sound bites for inappropriate purposes, and make the Court regret releasing the audio.

The Daily Show did just that. Chopping some of the clips from argument in Fox v. FCC, John Stewart inaugurated a new segment, A Love Supreme.

I don’t find the Daily Show particularly funny, and this segment was lame at best, but I like the idea of using SCOTUS audio. More people should listen to it!
