Great moments in journalism: CNN investigates its big boo-boo

Or, as a memo to the staff put it:

As you all know by now, our initial reporting of the decision turned out to be wrong. Despite the best of intentions, we told our viewers and our online readers that the individual mandate in the Affordable Care Act had been struck down when, in fact, it had not.

In other news: the memo also notes that “While this may be of little solace, it is worth noting that our coverage after 10:20am was very strong.”
