Sotomayor Confirmation Hearings: Video and Live Blog

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


Your friendly D.C. bureau legal affairs reporter, Stephanie Mencimer, has been reporting live from inside the Sotomayor confirmation hearings. We’ve teamed up with TheUptake.org to bring you live video of the hearing (plus Twitter updates from Stephanie and David Corn in the crawl). Also check out the live blog below the video. You can find all that here.  If you missed Monday or Tuesday’s action, check out the wrap-ups: Pride and Prejudice and Where Did Sotomayor’s Empathy Go? Plus, two video highlights from the week so far: Sonia knows nunchucks, and Al Franken’s flop.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
