CNN, Fox Inaccurately Report Ruling

The Chicago Tribune once wrote “Dewey Defeats Truman,” the New York Post claimed that Bush won the 2000 election before it was called, and now CNN and Fox News join the ranks: the two networks reported inaccurately that the Supreme Court “killed” part of President Obama’s health-care legislation. The individual mandate, one of the key parts of the legislation, was upheld as a tax, but CNN and Fox News reported that it had been ruled unconstitutional. Within minutes, the report was disputed, but screenshots of CNN and Fox News will allow the error to live on in infamy.
