Commentary:

I really wonder about news stories where the issue has been resolved (or almost resolved).  In this case, it seemed that Sarah Wilson’s health bill was a clerical error which can be fixed once she shows proof of citizenship/residency?  Yes, it was a rather hurtful reminder of the death of her daughter, but is a one-off clerical error like this real cause for wider concern?

3 News took the US elections more seriously tonight with explanations of the process, results and implications as well as a live cross to CBS’ Joel Brown. 

Verdict:

3 News
