A Guess on the CNN/FoxNews Snafu

Both CNN and FoxNews reported initially (as did Diane Rehm) that the mandate had been struck down.  Was that based on reading the Roberts opinion, or was it based on The Chief Justice's' way of announcing the opinion in court?  Did he start with the Commerce Clause, and then transition with a big "But . . . "?  Just curious if anyone was in attendance and could speak to how the moment felt.
