Article III Groupie's alter ego, David Lat, is going to be on tonight's installment of The Charlie Rose Show, where he will discuss the Alito confirmation hearings. The show will air at 11 p.m. Eastern time.
It's well worth watching, not because of Mr. Lat's presence, but because of the great legal minds -- all former Supreme Court clerks, of course -- who will be chatting with Mr. Rose during the show: Professor Charles Fried, of Harvard Law School; Professor Noah Feldman, of NYU Law School; and Professor John Yoo, of Boalt Hall. Evan Thomas, assistant managing editor of Newsweek magazine, will also be interviewed.
Although Lat will never join the ranks of the Elect, at least he gets to be on television with them. Neato!
In addition, last Friday, while he was traveling in India, David Lat participated in a telephone interview with Mary Darcy of WAMC (Northeast Public Radio). Lat explained the meaning of various legal terms and concepts expected to get bandied about at the Alito hearings. You can access an audio clip of that interview via this page (scroll down to "download me"; Lat's interview begins at around the 6:45 mark).
