Welp, 360 did cover the big SCOTUS decision upholding Obamacare but not before airing several reports on the prison break--priorities, people. The whereabouts of the two prison escapees couldn't possibly be more important than the monumental Obama Administration SCOTUS victory that allows millions of people to keep their much needed health insurance. AC's discussion with Jeff Toobin and Douglas Brinkley on the decision was good, but still too brief for my liking and shouldn't have been squeezed into the last half hour of the program. Rachel Maddow and Chris Hayes had the Obamacare win at the top of their broadcasts and both really went in depth on the historic significance of the decision and the impact it will have for years to come. I have the feeling that had SCOTUS ruled against the administration, AC360 would've had that as the lead story with lots of talk about what a devastating blow it is to the Obama Administration and the president's legacy, but Obama victories have never been anything that 360 was in a rush to report on.

I'm very curious to see how 360 will cover the SCOTUS decision on same-sex marriage whenever it comes down and where exactly will it show up in the broadcast--especially if AC is anchoring when it does.
