    I got repeated text messages from CNN stating simply that the mandate had been struck down. No equivocation. Then the followup message stated that that entire law had been upheld. Also wrong because of the state Medicare ruling. CNN blew it. Comparing with Fox does not mitigate that. They deserve all the bad things that might happen.

    And yes, Fox screwed up too.

    Kurtz screws up by falsely equating CNN with Fox News on the Supreme Court announcement. CNN said it appears the mandate was not a valid exercise of the commerce clause. It appears as if the Court struck down the mandate. Fox just said the mandate was ruled institutional. These are not the same statements. yet Kurtz makes no distinction. Listening on my car radio to CNN I knew I had to keep listening. Why does Kutz let Medved get away with stating falseinformation by saying the Court called it a tax. Roberts said it was valid under the taxing authority. The four liberals said it was on the commerce power and the taxing power.
