    No, a ban is not good ... the public have a right to know.

    Oh, look, stuff the public! *I* have a right to know!

    I voted "no" - we have contempt of court laws and I see no justification for further restrictions beyond that. Details of terrorism cases in progress are often interesting as they unfold as well as at the end, especially where prosecutions have been bungled and/or innocent people suspected.

    I'd be more inclined to support a blanket ban on reporting what Britney's been up to.
