Cable Networks Bungle Reports on Supreme Court Decision
June 29, 2012  | By Ed Bark
 




Oops. Both CNN and Fox News Channel initially managed to bungle Thursday's U.S. Supreme Court decision upholding President Obama's health reform law on a 5-4 vote.

Republicans prefer to call it "Obamacare." And they spun it as a "victory" anyway, telling various news networks that the decision will play into their hands on election day.

What a country. A polarized Washington and two out of three national cable news networks screwing up a historic Supreme Court decision. Dare it be said we should expect better? And man, is The Daily Show going to have fun with this. Below is video of the initial CNN report.
