The legal blogosphere we live in often seems insular–until the leader of the free world enters it. This morning, President Obama wrote a guest post at SCOTUSBlog titled “A Responsibility I Take Seriously.” (This will no doubt hamper their effort to get a press pass).
A few days ago FBI Director James Comeny wrote a guest post at Lawfare, titled “We Could Not Look the Survivors in the Eye if We Did Not Follow this Lead,” urging Apple to help the feds unlock the iPhone of the San Bernadino terrorists.
Obama and Comey no doubt could have gotten a few columns in the Wall Street Journal or The Washington Post, but they chose SCOTUSBlog and Lawfare.
What a testament to the power of legal blogs that the leaders of our government use this medium to communicate to the American people!
