The Prop 8 Revolution Will Be Televised (Sort of)

After the Supreme Court blocked a plan to broadcast the trial of California's same-sex marriage ban on YouTube, two filmmakers have found a loophole. Using the transcripts and lookalike actors (including Oscar-nominated Tess Harper and 24's Gregory Itzin) to play the judge, lawyers, plaintiffs, defendants, and witnesses, the filmmakers are reenacting the trial of Proposition 8 and posting it on YouTube. While E! tried the reenactment approach with the Michael Jackson trial, the Prop 8 version has a more legitimate if less engrossing feel. It's like C-SPAN with actors — you're glad it's out there, but you don't really want to sit through it. Check it out below.

I don't know why it needs to be televised in the first place. State after state keeps rejecting it, watching a trial won't change the mind of the voters.

They're afraid those who testify might be harassed, which sort of makes sense. Seems cowardly, though. They'll speak out against gay marriage, just as long as they don't have to reveal their identity. Talk about taking pride in your cause, right? Legalize gay marriage!

Why was the trial blocked in the first place...? I didn't realize this had happened.
