    Maybe they should have investigated the story before making it national news?

    Nah, crazy talk!

    You are talking about an industry that does things like report that the ACA had been overturned by the Supreme Court because they couldn't finish walking out the door with the text of the decision before they had to report SOMETHING. Let alone read the dang thing.

    our media thinks being first is more important than being right. Probably because that is the more profitable option.

    Well, it certainly looks like he was the victim of a real estate scam...$32 million for that!

    It looks nasty. Like it needs a good scrubbing or something. I guess $32 million doesn't buy you much in the Big Apple these days.

    Not sure who you were listening to, but the first I heard of the ACA decision was on twitter, from a conservative pundit, with these simple words: "It's a Tax"

    Maybe you should stick to more obvious failures of the national media. Might I suggest "Hands up, Don't Shoot"?

    Someone did this to elicit a response. 'Who' remains to be seen. It wasnt the businesses. Now...who would have something to gain by this? Surely the stickers should be relatively easy to track.

    The "who" turns out to be a 'Liberal Social Justice Warrior'. Odd how these 'warriors' always prefer to remain anonymous.

    CNN reported that the ACA had been ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. Oops.

    I fully expect Montecristo along any time now to acknowledge the evidence of the 'agent provocateur'.
