Is Shorthand Permitted? 

Two reporters ordered to erase tapes while covering Scalia speech
Two reporters were ordered Wednesday to erase their tape recordings of a speech by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia at a Mississippi high school.
This guy is just outright nuts. What could possibly be the harm of reporters taping a speech that they are going to report on? Unless Scalia is terrified of being caught in a contradiction and being made to look like a hypocrite with no ability to claim that he was misquoted, this makes no sense.

Ahh, wait, yes. I get it. Okay, never mind.
