CBS News legal analyst Andrew Cohen writes that he is winding down, “a rollicking decade of work as the television and online legal analyst for my cherished CBS News.”
Monday’s CourtWatch column on CBSNews.com, which Cohen calls “one of the longest-running, continuously-updated legal blogs ever,” was his last. And he pulls no punches writing about what TV news coverage of legal stories has become.
One of the greatest hypocrisies in the current coverage of legal events is the elevation of stories involving telegenic (and typically white) victims or perpetrators of crime over stories involving minorities and the voiceless. I simply refused to join this cynical and arbitrary chorus.
We’re told Cohen will continue on as a legal analyst for CBS Radio News.
