Tweeting the ruling

@CNNPolitics: BREAKING NEWS: #SCOTUS struck down individual mandate for #healthcare. #CNN

@MrMediaTraining: #CNN says mandate was struck down. Others say it survives as a tax. The perils of instant reporting. God forbid they get it right first.

@sarahkliff: Whole lot of journalists spiking a whole lot of "individual mandate struck down" stories.

@jeremyscahill: CNN is reporting that today is Wednesday

@kevinthepang: CNN: "Dewey Defeats Truman"

@MateoTorgy: Breaking News: President Obama forgives Chief Justice John Roberts for screwing up the Oath of Office.

@FixAaron: So Obama still has his signature legislative accomplishment, but now he's a tax-raiser?

@ezraklein: Wow. So Kennedy voted with conservatives, Roberts with liberals. Umpire, indeed.

@TheFix: Individual mandate stands. BIG win for Obama. BIG.
