Most media organizations took to Twitter and mobile alerts to report that Gov. Jan Brewer (R) vetoed an Arizona bill that would have allowed businesses to discriminate against same-sex couples on "religious freedom" grounds. But the press had a wide-ranging choice of words when reporting the news.
HuffPost Political Reporter Sam Stein tweeted a screen capture of mobile alerts from The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal.
