"...will certainly remain a definitive book on the subject of television coverage of the Supreme Court. This well organized and well-written book is far superior to other works focusing on media coverage of the Supreme Court (Davis, Devol, Graham, and Katsh). That is because Slotnick and Segal analyze the subject from just about every possible angle, employing a variety of methods and providing different levels of analysis." David M. O'Brien, The Law and Politics Book Review "...a valuable and detailed view of how broadcasters cover the Court as well as some sense of how coverage has changed over time." Robert E. Drechsel, Judicature "Appropriate for journalists, lawyers, and scholars and students of mass communications and judicial process." Choice "...provide[s] a highly readable scholarly examination of the ways in which the media, particularly television news, (mis)inform the public about the Supreme Court...Television News and the Supreme Court contributes significant new information about the Court and the reporters who cover it...this book could become part of an excellent graduate course on the interactions of the Court and the media."
