Mainstream media slams Obamacare rollout


The online Obamacare exchanges opened Oct. 1, and the mainstream media agrees it’s been a gargantuan flop. Glitches, delays and frustration have persisted for Americans across the country.

Also, the Obama administration’s claim to not know how many people have successfully gotten insured has drawn deep skepticism.

Some soundbites include:

“The website’s launch has been nothing short of disastrous.” —CBS correspondent Jan Crawford.

“They have done a terrible job launching this law.” —MSNBC’s Ezra Klein.

“The candidate and campaign that brought us the most technologically advanced campaign in history in touching millions of people blew it this badly on this, their biggest, most important government outreach? It’s unbelievable.” —MSNBC’s Chuck Todd.

“They can’t give you a figure on how many people have actually signed up? I just don’t believe that.” —CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

“So far, the White House isn’t saying how many people have managed to enroll, but industry sources tell NBC News the numbers could be embarrassingly low.” —NBC’s Tom Costello.
