Yes, this is a sports media blog, but when two of the three cable news networks totally botch the most important Supreme Court ruling in many years, it's definitely worth a mention. This morning, the US Supreme Court upheld the heavily debated healthcare law of President Obama in a 5-4 decision. Except, in a "Dewey Defeats Truman" moment, both CNN and Fox News reported the wrong decision. (Pics via Tim Burke, Will Yoder, & Jim Romenesko)
And, CNN host and occasional Fox soccer commentator, Piers Morgan reported the wrong ruling (and sheepishly deleted the tweet). This is the same guy who minutes earlier had bashed MLS as "glorified pub football." I guess you could say the same about his network's reporting, except it's actually true.
CNN and Fox weren't alone as several other outlets on Twitter reported the wrong ruling as well. I'm trying to think of a sports equivalent, but struggling to find such an important story that could possibly be screwed up this epically.
