<p>The 26 June 2015 edition ABC's <i>World News Tonight</i> aired a completely one-sided report on the Supreme Court's ruling that legalized same-sex "marriage" in all 50 states. Terry Moran hyped how Justice Anthony Kennedy "wrote today's landmark opinion describing the stakes in this case in the loftiest terms." Moran failed to include any soundbites from social conservative opponents of the decision, and hyped how "Justice Scalia, in a rage, scorning Kennedy's poetic opinion as little more than a 'fortune cookie.'"</p>
<p>Scott Pelley included one clip from Alabama's governor as an afterthought on <i>CBS Evening News</i>, after his newscast featured five talking heads in favor of the Court's ruling. By contrast, <i>NBC Nightly News</i> stood out for playing three clips of conservatives reacting to the development.
