Supreme Court Upholds Individual Mandate for Healthcare

... So why did CNN get it so wrong? That's a pretty big matzoh ball hanging out there!

The SCOTUS blog and MSNBC had it right. CNN did correct it about 10 minutes later, calling it "Obamacare" now:

Fox News still not updating as of now ....

EDIT: Both CNN and Fox News originally reported the bill as being defeated according to Poynter.

I was reading the Scotus live blog at the same time I had CNN up and wish I'd gotten some screenshots like this. (Quick thinking, you!)

It was amazing how long they had it completely wrong. Just.... wow.

I think instead of "Correction" they should have written "D'oh!"
