A Process run amok-- can it be fixed? ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Koppel and panel members discuss the nomination and confirmation process of Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. Various points are made: Washington is more partisan than it was in the past; the nominee is judged, not on the complete record, but on the basis of one allegation, fault, or peccadillo; liberal groups are out to scandalize a process they cannot dominate; the President ignored the advice of certain key senators; civility is the first casualty of partisanship as truth is the first casualty of war. Why were the Anita Hill allegations not pursued earlier in the process? Is race at the heart of the problem?

Thomas second hearing ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The committee heard testimony from University of Oklahoma Law Professor Anita Hill during the first day of the reopened confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee and U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Clarence Thomas. Professor Hill testified on her charges that she had been sexually harassed by Judge Thomas when he was her boss in the Department of Education and the EEOC in the early 1980's. Professor Hill, speaking in level, measured tones, told the committee of her career, her relationship with Judge Thomas, and the behavior of Judge Thomas toward her in the workplace. She said Judge Thomas often asked her for dates, which she turned down, and often instigated discussions of sexual matters which she refused to take part in. She said Judge Thomas explicitly discussed aspects of pornographic movies he had seen, and emphasized his own sexual prowess. Professor Hill said she attempted to avoid opportunities for extended conversations with Judge Thomas, but transferred with him to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission when he was promoted to head the agency because she had no alternative job. Committee members questioned Professor Hill on the substance of the incidents involving the sexual harassment charges, on her subsequent relationship to Judge Thomas after she left the EEOC, and her reasons and possible motives for stating the charges. Committee members specifically questioned Professor Hill on the graphic and explicit nature of the incidents of sexual harassment she charged against Judge Thomas"--from C-SPAN store web page
