Over at The New Republic, Simon van Zuylen-Wood gives a minute-by-minute look at how CNN's legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin set off a media frenzy last week. Toobin has long seemed to me to be more interested in journalistic spin than in judicial accuracy, a talking head who wants, above all, to keep himself in front of the cameras, but last week he outdid himself, arguing that oral arguments don't really matter and then explaining why oral arguments mattered, all within a matter of minutes. Stunning.
