Kagan Confirmation Hearings Available on C-SPAN Site

The confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee and Solicitor General Elena Kagan is ongoing today before the Senate Judiciary Committee, and those of you interested in watching or catching up on the proceedings can check out the C-SPAN website and the C-SPAN video library.

It’s a little confusing, because each day’s hearings are split into multiple videos, and I haven’t found good access to complete transcripts. I did find that on the page for each video segment, there is a “search transcript” option to put in a word and see if it was covered in that segment. Most of the abortion discussion seems to be in Day 2, Part 1 — if you do the transcript search and click on one of the results, it will start playing the video right at that bit of the footage.

C-SPAN’s main page for the hearings with live coverage is http://cspan.org/Special/Supreme-Court-Kagan-Senate-Confirmation-Hearing.aspx
