Tick Tock Toward Affirming the Mandate

SCOTUSBlog’s Tom Goldstein does a second-by-second reconstruction of the reporting of the Supreme Court’s healthcare ruling, giving a full explanation of what went wrong with Fox News and CNN and what went right with other news sources.

He writes, “The two networks’ responses to how Thursday morning unfolded are also a study in contrasts.  Both got identical incorrect information from their producers inside the Court, who made mistakes despite their best efforts.  The reaction in some quarters at CNN has been apoplectic.  But Fox – which like CNN is taking steps to avoid making a similar initial mistake in the future – generally views Thursday morning’s “transparent” broadcasting of information as it developed in real time as exactly how its reporting should function.

“At the White House, there is more to the story than the spin that the President believed the Administration had lost the case only for a very short period of time.  In fact, for at least a few minutes he thought the opposite and for more than five minutes, he had substantially worse information than many Americans.”
