Neither ABC, NBC or CBS bothered to report on their evening news yesterday, that the use of $175 billion for insurance subsidies by the Obama Administration was deemed unconstitutional. This ruling is a major blow to Obamacare, that's already seeing many major health insurers contemplate pulling out of the exchanges.

Thank goodness Special Report on Fox News reported the story so at least some Americans were informed.

If it holds, it would be a nuisance for Obamacare. But that will probably depend on the next higher judge.

Wasn't this a single District Court judge, whose ruling is subject to appeal?

One Federal Judge and she immediately put her ruling on hold - pending appeal.

Yes, but it's still news none the less.

I'm getting at the thread title, specifically its use of the word "ignore".

I suspected that as BWG has since pointed out, the judge understandably isn't trying to order this into effect immediately.

which makes sense as they would appeal it anyway and as for a stay. so why waste more time.

They're ignoring it because it's old news.

The ruling was made on May 12th and I started this thread on May 13th.

Care to come up with another excuse?

No.

See, we've been through this process before. Right-wingers find random **** to try and challenge about the ACA and mostly get shot down.

I personally don't think this is newsworthy. I hate Obamacare, btw. But taking step 1 in an unlikely 10-step process isn't something to get excited about. I think Fox News was biased in calling this news.

Excuse? That's how news works. Tired old **** doesn't make major headlines. See, turns out news agencies are businesses who are interested in, you know, money.

Because last Friday, the "liberal media" was reporting on Trump (and his denial that he impersonated his own spokesperson)

If true I would not take this as an assertion that ABC, CBS, and NBC do not cover stuff because it is detrimental to Obamacare. It is more like they are simply not FOX who's sole purpose is to bring down Obamacare. The MM have a whole lot more important political things to report on right now. It is simply not important news.

It is common for Fox news commentators to do this. Report on something that is not all that important to the rest of us and then point out the Mainstream Media is in the hip pocket of the Obama because they don't report he same. You guys just don't get how you are being used.

Addendum
Fox has 24/7 news coverage, network news does not.
