Info: Our guest is Tom Goldstein, who co-founded the website SCOTUSblog along with his wife Amy Howe in 2002. Goldstein’s website recently received the 2013 Peabody Award for excellence in electronic media, thus becoming the first blog to ever receive the Peabody. SCOTUSblog also won the 2013 Society of Professional Journalists prize for deadline reporting for its coverage of the Supreme Court’s healthcare ruling. Goldstein discusses the early days of the blog when he and his wife operated out of a third bedroom in their Washington, DC home. He explains his statement that the blog’s inception was a “marketing ploy,” and talks about the decision to hire longtime Baltimore Sun court reporter Lyle Denniston. He discusses the sponsorship of Bloomberg Law, a subscription based service for online legal research. Goldstein relates his early education and interest in becoming a lawyer, and reflects on some of the humorous postings he has made on the internet to advertise his law firm.
