FLee is on the board.
Court TV staffs the camera.
Conflict of interest?
Defense attorney F. Lee Bailey is on Court TV’s board of commentators. Ito asks if the prosecution thinks a conflict of interest would exist if Court TV (since renamed truTV) staffs the courtroom pool TV camera. They say it’s OK.
Media quickly nicknamed Bailey, FLee and gossiped about how he was always helping himself to the hard candy the court clerk kept in a dish at her desk. A testament, some said, to his propensity to over imbibe.
