After the Supreme Court today voted to uphold Obamacare, CNN got to work reporting the decision, as any good news organization would. The problem is, they got it wrong. But they weren’t alone: The Buffalo News reported the decision incorrectly, too. So did Fox News, but, really, what did you expect?

The reporting gaffe spawned a rash of fake CNN headlines on Twitter, which got me thinking: What fake headlines would Buffalonians love to see pop up on the national (or, heck, even local) news?
