The Supreme Court ruled to uphold the individual mandate within the Affordable Care Act on Thursday, sending news organizations into a tizzy to report the outcome of this historic case.

The controlling opinion, written by Chief Justice John Roberts, upheld the individual mandate clause as a tax. It was somewhat unexpected, thought, that Roberts voted against his fellow conservative judges.

Newspapers across the country led with news of the ruling on Friday. Some headlines reported the outcome of the case, while others focused on Roberts' role in the decision. Some papers localized the story, using a headline that questioned what the decision meant for a particular state.
