The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the individual insurance requirement at the heart of President Barack Obama's historic health care overhaul.

But for several minutes on CNN.com, the news website reported the high court had struck down the individual mandate for health care.

A correction was quickly made and the website replaced the incorrect headline ‘Mandate struck down' with the word ‘UPHELD.'
