CNN intern learns lesson after wearing GoPro camera in Supreme Court press room
A CNN intern who turned on a GoPro recording device in the Supreme Court’s press room learned a lesson about court rules on Monday.
All media interns were briefly removed from the press room after the device was discovered, leading to a meeting of top executives at CNN and an apology, Politico’s On Media blog reports. Above the Law noted the story.
The Supreme Court bars recording devices in the Public Information Office, the adjoining press room and the court.
The intern, who worked as a “runner” carrying court opinions to a CNN reporter, was wearing the camera for an episode of a CNN digital series. He was allowed back into the press room after agreeing to turn off the GoPro.
CNN said in a statement that the intern misunderstood the recording rules and the network was taking action to remedy the situation. “We profusely apologize to the court,” the statement said.
