Judge Neil Gorsuch’s Supreme Court nomination hearing begins today, Monday, March 20. The first day of the hearing will be “lower key,” consisting mostly of opening statements from Gorsuch and the 20 Senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee. The hearing is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. Eastern.
Here’s a roundup of your livestreaming options for today.
Major Cable Networks’ Live Stream Options for the Supreme Court Hearing
Because Gorsuch isn’t expected to start testifying until Tuesday (although this isn’t guaranteed), there won’t be quite as many avenues for watching today’s live stream. Your best option is to tune in to C-SPAN for live coverage starting at 11 a.m. Eastern. You can watch on C-SPAN at this link.
PBS News Hour is also covering the hearing. However, it appears that their main coverage will focus on James Comey on Monday, with coverage reverting to focus on Gorsuch starting on Tuesday. However, any live coverage that PBS offers on Monday will be available at this link.
