Bipartisan senators table bill to televise Supreme Court proceedings

A bipartisan group of senators have introduced a bill to televise proceedings in the Supreme Court. However, the bill allows judges to stop televising under certain circumstances. The SCOTUS doesn’t currently permit TV cameras. Only a few people are allowed inside the building to hear the proceedings. The court had been hearing arguments via videoconferencing for nearly a year due to the pandemic.

I like the idea of transparency in government, but this could turn SC hearings into the partisan grandstanding events that much of Congress has become.

I'm not sure how one branch of government can regulate the proceedings of another with a simple statute. I don't know if I'm for or against this. I haven't thought about it enough. Just not sure if it's legally practical. They don't usually get so directly in each other's procedures.

Now wouldn't that be something else !! Really, honestly. All those years of hush hush closed door bipartisan dealings to be televised for all to see.

I just see an opportunity for emotional grandstanding by lawyers who will be quickly censured by the court.

Wouldn't there potentially be a problem with doxing / or will they have the audio muted / only selective audio shared? I know a lot of local courtrooms do not allow video or audio recordings in part to prevent private data to be shared publically. Perhaps confidential information isn't shared at supreme court hearing, unlike local hearings?

I thought the Supreme Court justices need to make decisions without considering any public repercussions, would this alter their behavior/decisions to avoid public scrutiny?
