As noted by our sister paper, the Miami New Times, the Miami Herald, blasted out misleading news to its Twitter followers, then stated conflicting reports were emerging, then provided the accurate news that the mandate was in fact upheld by the nation's top court.
Diane Rehm, esteemed NPR radio host, also said that the court struck down the mandate but then corrected the news.
