Description

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia says that the nation's highest court "gets clobbered by the press all the time," driving him to the point of writing letters to the Washington Post that, for the sake of upholding tradition, he does not send. "I don't think it's the role of the judge to give an account of himself to the people," Scalia tells C-SPAN in a Q&A interview that will air this Sunday at 8 p.m. "It's the tradition of common law judges not to reply to press criticism. We get clobbered by the press all the time. I can't tell you how many wonderful letters I've written to the Washington Post just for my own satisfaction then ripped up and thrown away.” "You don't send them -- that's the tradition of the common law judge," he continues. "You do not respond to criticism. Why is that? Because what the judge has to say is in the judges opinion."
