NBC News is partnering with the publisher of SCOTUSblog to cover the upcoming Supreme Court decisions.
As part of the deal, SCOTUSblog publisher Tom Goldstein will become a contributor to NBC News, appearing on-air and writing for NBCNews.com and MSNBC.com through the end of the current term. The network is quick to point out that justice correspondent Pete Williams won’t be going anywhere.
“It is an honor to work so closely with NBC News and Pete Williams during such a historic time at the Supreme Court,” said Goldstein in a statement. “Bringing SCOTUSblog to the attention of the network’s huge and well-informed audience is a tremendous opportunity for us.”
SCOTUSblog has quickly earned a name for itself as one of the fastest and most reliable sources of news and analysis when it comes to the Supreme Court. Last year, when CNN and Fox News incorrectly reported the outcome of the healthcare decision, FNC’s Megyn Kelly saw SCOTUSblog’s take, prompting a correction. It also wrote the definitive story on what happened that day.
As it happens, SCOTUSblog is sponsored by NBC competitor Bloomberg, which has a long and complicated history with its parent company Comcast.
