'Dewey Defeats Truman' Obama Photoshop Mocks CNN Over Healthcare Decision Error (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

This morning, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld President Obama's healthcare package, but several media outlets, including CNN and Fox News, got the announcement wrong at first.

This Photoshopped image of Obama holding up the fumbled CNN headline on an iPad quickly surfaced on the Internet. The image references an infamous media screw-up in which the Chicago Tribune misreported the results of the 1948 presidential election, calling it for New York Governor Thomas E. Dewey instead of incumbent President Harry S. Truman.

Truman held up the botched front page of the paper during a stop at St. Louis Union Station, calling it "one for the books."

Update: As reported by the New York Times, the author of the photo illustration was Gary He, product director at Insider Images.
