NBC News’ smart coverage of #SCOTUS decision

As the court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act Wednesday morning, NBC News supplemented its usual coverage with a single-serving site called IsThereSCOTUSDecision.com.

Ryan Osborn, NBC News’ vice president for digital innovations, says his team threw together the one-glancer in four hours this past Sunday and “we’ve seen a nice little reaction.” It was inspired, he said, by sites like HowManyPeopleAreInSpaceRightNow.com and the Guardian’s Is There White Smoke site during March’s papal conclave.
