Even the simplest of things are beyond them. In their coverage of the U.S. Supreme Court opinion in Mohawk Industries v. Carpenter, they report that Justice Sotomayor's first opinion drew a "testy concurrence" from Justice Thomas despite "methodical reasoning and a formal writing style."That's a good one, though.
Had the author, Adam Liptak, actually read the concurrence, he'd have seen that Justice Thomas was actually criticizing the majority opinion from a case decided 60 years ago, Cohen v. Beneficial Industrial Loan Corp., 337 U.S. 541 (1949).
