Is the Media Putting Pressure on Members of the Manafort Jury?

A number of media outlets are colluding with each other in a legal effort to make public the names and addresses of the jurors in the trial of Paul Manafort, those outlets reported on Friday.

It’s a strange request, but one the media seems all too proud to submit.

Reporters from BuzzFeed and CNN bragged on Twitter that they joined with NBC, Politico, The New York Times, and The Washington Post.

According to CNN’s Prokupecz, above, the judge seemed sympathetic to the request.

If the names and addresses of jurors are released, the high profile nature of the case could put public pressure on the jury as they decide their verdict.

UPDATE: The judge denied the media’s request.
