MSNBC Will Use Virtual-Reality Supreme Court Bench During Trump Insurrection Arguments

MSNBC plans to augment audio of the Supreme Court's Trump insurrection deliberations with a virtual-reality set that emulated the bench of justices

The average person won’t be able to see the nation’s Supreme Court justices contemplating arguments Thursday over whether Donald Trump’s efforts to undo his loss in the 2020 election to President Joe Biden can be prosecuted as a crime. MSNBC will harness the VR gee-wizardry just as TV-news networks are confronted with news of high interest that is taking place in venues that won’t allow full coverage. On screen, viewers will see ersatz cameras move across a courtroom tableau, and wander from one representation of a Supreme justice to the next, depending on which is speaking over the course of the proceedings.
