Watch the Sotomayor Confirmation Hearings Online

While online video coverage of Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor’s confirmation hearing is unlikely to drive the same spikes in traffic as the recent Michael Jackson memorial, we realize there is a contingent of people who want to watch our government in action.

Fans of political theater can find “gavel-to-gavel” coverage amongst the usual news site suspects: MSNBC, CNN, FOX News, and Live-streaming began for most a little before 10 a.m. ET this morning. And it looks like online is picking up the broadcast slack. Though the cable nets are carrying live coverage on oldteevee, the traditional broadcast networks are not.

UPDATE: Political junkies can also find live online video coverage at CSPAN and USA Today.
