Bill O’Reilly promised in March that he would “apologize for being an idiot” if the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act. But after the historic ruling upholding the law, O’Reilly called into his Fox News show, which was being guest-hosted by Laura Ingraham, and didn’t mention his previous pledge to apologize or his prediction that it would be overturned.

Both CNN and Fox, in a race to get the story on-air first, inaccurately reported that the individual mandate had been found unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.

After erstwhile team player Chief Justice John Roberts led the Supreme Court in upholding the Affordable Care Act, Fox News has spent the day trying to convince themselves, if not the rest of us, that this is excellent news for Republicans and Mitt Romney — to the point of arguing that President Obama’s “cynical” political team would have preferred the law be struck down entirely so the whole issue would just “go away.” A little while ago, Megyn Kelly sat down to talk with Chris Stirewalt, Fox News digital politics editor, about the electoral implications of the Supreme Court ruling. Stirewalt argued — in all seriousness — that President Obama’s re-election team in Chicago were pulling for a full repeal. STIREWALT: I can sum it up this way: at the White House, it’s a good day.

Mike Vanderboegh, the ex-militia blogger who calls himself one of the “midwives” of the Operation Fast and Furious scandal, recently predicted that if the Supreme Court declared the health care reform bill to be constitutional, it would lead to violent insurrection against “government tyranny.” The blogger posted the statements, which come from a recent unpublished interview, the same day the House of Representatives voted to find Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt over his unwillingness to release documents related to Fast and Furious. In the  excerpts Vanderboegh posted on his blog “which deal with the decision today,” he says of a then-potential decision upholding the health care law, “You may call tyranny a mandate or you may call it a tax, but it still is tyranny and invites the same response.” He further predicts the response of his ilk: “If we refuse to obey, we will be fined. If we refuse to pay the fine, we will in time be jailed

While discussing the walkout of House Democrats in protest of the contempt vote against Attorney General Eric Holder, Fox News’ Eric Bolling claimed on  The Five : “I don’t think I’ve ever seen that before. I don’t think I’ve ever seen people vacating the House like that before — over a vote.” Obviously Bolling hasn’t been paying attention. In February of 2008, House Republicans  walked out  during a vote that held two Bush aides (Josh Bolten and Harriet Miers) in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify about the politically motivated firings of U.S

In response to the Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of health care reform, the Drudge Report is smearing Chief Justice John Roberts over the possibility that he might use epilepsy medication and suggesting that it affected his judgment. Drudge linked to a Real Clear Politics post that contains a clip of right-wing radio host Michael Savage claiming that “if you look at Roberts’ writings you can see the cognitive disassociation in what he is saying.” Roberts had a seizure in 2007, after suffering one 14 years earlier. The Washington Post reported this month that Roberts has not publicly addressed whether he has epilepsy

In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, right-wing media figures claimed Chief Justice Roberts’ decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act shows that he’s liberal. But Roberts’ recognizing the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act doesn’t change his record as presiding over the most conservative and corporate-friendly court in recent history. Right-Wing Media Attack Roberts As A Liberal Big Government: “Thanks To President Bush ..
