Fox News “forgets” to report on historic Supreme Court DOMA decision

Fox News today “forgot” to cover the Supreme Court’s historic announcement of its decision in the gay marriage case US v. Windsor, in which the court struck down a key portion of the anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) as unconstitutional.

For a good two minutes, while all the other networks were reporting live from the Supreme Court, Fox was busying reporting it’s “ALERT” that some football player, Aaron Hernandez, had been arrested for allegedly murdering someone.

Note MSNBC moments after the decision was announced, and then Fox News:


Jed Lewison from Daily Kos has a nice write up, and video of the two broadcasts, side by side, as MSNBC reports the historic news, and Fox ignores it for several minutes:
