News organizations don’t all get ruling right
Question of the Day
Several members of Congress tweeted incorrect information about the ruling, perhaps based on the initial misreading by cable networks.
Republican Rep. Darrell Issa of California called it a “big win for liberty and the Constitution. Rep. Tom Rooney (R, Fla.) said it was “great news for the American people, victory for constitution.”
On CBS, Jan Crawford spoke on the air as she scanned the decision. “It appears, based on our quick summary, that the mandate, the individual mandate at the heart of this case may be in jeopardy under one provision of the constitution but they may have upheld the mandate under another provision.”
ABC initially bobbled one detail _ calling the ruling 6-3 instead of 5-4 _ but correctly reported the outcome in a special report by Terry Moran. NBC’s Pete Williams said that “the bottom line here is the Supreme Court has upheld the health care law.”
