Do the ENMC rules allow electronic coverage of jury selection and of the jury?

Rule 25.2(6) allows expanded news media coverage of the return of the jury's verdict. In all other circumstances, expanded news media coverage of jurors is prohibited except to the extent "it is unavoidable in the coverage of other trial participants or courtroom proceedings." This means that while reporting on jury selection is permitted, electronic coverage — including Tweeting, blogging and other live electronic coverage — is prohibited.
