Please, immediately, stop taunting on social networks about CNN and others’ SCOTUS ruling mistake and the AP getting it right. That’s not the impression we want to reflect as an organization. Let our reporting take the lead.
Associated Press Central U.S. regional editor David Scott • In a memo to their reporters and editors, asking them to stop taunting other media organizations that got it wrong.

Everyone Slow Down, Redux Edition

This is an update to our post earlier this morning about slowing down, digesting and getting things right before rushing to report.

CNN didn’t and instead ran banner headlines on its site about the Supreme Court striking down the individual mandate.

Fox too but, well, somehow that’s less surprising.

This is tagged “slow news movement.” I like that.

In case you haven’t heard, CNN sorta screwed this up. The law was mostly upheld. (ht @BuzzfeedAndrew)

When I was asked to do this, we were always clear it would be temporary — daily newscast anchoring is not what I am built do do. But that doesn’t mean I’m not disappointed the program didn’t perform better.
CNN anchor John King • Discussing the end of his “John King, USA,” which will get replaced with another hour of Wolf Blitzer doing his “Situation Room” thing. King will instead focus on the campaign trail — which he feels is his greatest strength. It’ll be his fourth presidential campaign with CNN. His show will continue through June 29.

This Barrett supporter on CNN just now: "Democracy died tonight … the end of the United States as we know it." Please tell us someone got a video of this guy.

Anthony Bourdain tends to get noticed. The chef turned televised tour guide is macho but not overbearing, profane without being coarse, and tall and handsome. How handsome? I was at an outdoor social event with my wife some years ago when he passed by, and she was so transfixed by him that she walked into a bush. I hate him for that, but am unsurprised that his charmed life is about to add a new chapter.
The NYT’s David Carr • Writing about how Anthony Bourdain is all dreamy and stuff. Oh, and his new gig with CNN.
