The Bloggingheads of the Conservative Legal Movement

On May 14 I ran a book forum for Steve Teles’s insightful and provocative new book, The Rise of the Conservative Legal Movement. The book is groundbreaking, in part because Teles is neither a lawyer nor a conservative — yet remains completely objective and analytical toward his subject matter. Well, it seems that the book tour/​publicity train keeps going, and yesterday Steve appeared on that vaunted new media institution, bloggingheads, opposite Newsday columnist and Fox News commentator Jim Pinkerton. I’ve only watched a brief bit so far, but it looks pretty good.
