SCOTUSblog, the Little Blog That Could, beat everyone hands down on comprehensiveness, substance, and accuracy of content on the case -- before, during, and after the decision came down. Their latest is a great minute-by-minute account of the coverage of the breaking of the decision. A key reason that SCOTUSblog got it right (and got 1.7 million hits as a reward) while the Big Guys, CNN and Fox, got it wrong, is that SCOTUSblog gamed it out carefully ahead of time:
The day before, I told our team that I did not want us to get it wrong if "the opinion does something really weird, with one paragraph saying that the government loses under the Commerce Clause, but then" upholds it on another ground. The morning of the decision, Mark Sherman of the Associated Press (justifiably) teased me about a Washington Post article in which I had (stupidly) said that I expected us to be faster than AP. I told him: "We’re not racing you"; in a decision this long and complicated, "no one will remember if you move this story first or we do," but the "only thing anyone will ever remember is if we f*** it up."
Thinking things through and taking your time. What a concept.
