To follow up on my post from last Sunday, this past week The New Yorker had a piece called "Six Lessons from the Misreporting of the Health-Care Decision."
For those of us (like me) fascinated by how far SCOTUSblog has come over the past ten years, this whole story is of keen interest. SCOTUSblog is one of the first law blogs I became aware of and began following, and it is great to see it catapult to nationwide prominence. It couldn't happen to a better blawg.
An excerpt from the New Yorker piece:
And then there is the matter of how we learned about the decision—and the media reports, notably by CNN and Fox News, that got it wrong. There are lessons there, several of which were drawn out in a seven-thousand-word post Tom Goldstein, of SCOTUSblog, wrote about how the story unfolded between 10:06 and 10:15 A.M. E.T. on Thursday, June 28th. Some of them we already know—for example, that SCOTUSblog itself did an exemplary job. But there’s more, too, with some conclusions that go beyond this case. Six of the lessons are below.
