Death Spirals, Invincibles, and the Media's ObamaCare Enrollee Counts

Wednesday, the Washington Post announced the 185,000 people have "applied for ObamaCare." When you consider the fact that this count is from only 16 states and that the month is only half over, that number is quite good. The administration's goal of 500,000 enrollees in the first month looks easily attainable. Until you dig a little deeper. Oct 18, 2013 11:26 AM PT

Media's 'Gang of 500' Ignore ObamaCare's Victims

The media are usually pretty big on victims, but only certain types of victims; victims that further the cause of big government and the Democrat agenda. For example, during the government shutdown, immediately, everyone from furloughed federal workers to inconvenienced tourists to children in need of cancer treatments could be seen across every cable channel and newspaper. And those are legitimate stories. No one is arguing that. But where are the ObamaCare victims, who I promise you are much easier to find than ObamaCare enrollees? Oct 18, 2013 9:03 AM PT

*Live Updates* 'Objective' Media Celebrate Obama Shutdown Victory

There is no question that from a purely partisan point of view, Obama won. But it is what he won that an objective media would not celebrate. And the media are not only celebrating, they are celebrating in a partisan way as though Obama was 100% right and his cause 100% righteous. Oct 17, 2013 8:07 AM PT

ObamaCare Site Creator: 'People Fainting In Conference Calls'

CGI Federal is the Canadian IT contractor responsible for creating most of the ObamaCare website. Tuesday, after describing the site as a "complete train wreck," the Washington Post took an in-depth look at the company -- its origins, track record, and how it landed the ObamaCare contract. It is all worth a read, but one staffer told the Post that the working environment at CGI is so awful today that "People are getting sick, fainting in conference calls." Oct 16, 2013 2:34 PM PT

Media Complain About Hillary's Secrecy But Won't Do Anything About It

I suspect that just like the ceaseless whining we hear from the media about the way Barack Obama treats them, in the end, the media will do nothing to force Clinton to change her ways. Because to actually do something effective risks damaging her politically, which in turn benefits Republicans; and among the media that is a much bigger sin than the "trampling the dissemination of information."

CBS News: ObamaCare Launch 'A Complete Disaster'

On Wednesday's CBS This Morning, co-anchor Norah O'Donnell described the ObamaCare launch as a "rough start." CBS reporter Jan Crawford responded with, "'Rough start' could be the understatement of the year. It has been a complete disaster. We don’t know how many people have enrolled. We can’t even find anyone who's enrolled. The Miami Herald is now calling them 'urban legends.'" Oct 16, 2013 11:38 AM PT

ObamaCare: Obama Loses Hometown Newspaper

In a brutal editorial, President Obama's hometown newspaper, the Chicago Tribune, blasts Obama Care, and not just the crippling technical issues that have marred the launch. Getting to the heart of the debacle, the Tribune points to what much of the media won't: the fact that millions are going to lose the insurance and doctor Obama promised they could keep; and that Obama's signature legislation should probably cover therapy for sticker shock.

Shutdown Ratings: CNN Sinks to Third; Fox Dominates

Since Jeff Zucker took the reins, this is the first time CNN has lost in the ratings to MSNBC during a big news event. While the two-left-wing networks have fight back and forth when the news isn't so dramatic, during the Boston Marathon bombing and the George Zimmerman trial, CNN jumped ahead of the Lean Forward network.

Ezra Klein Knew ObamaCare Site Had Problems Weeks Before Launch

ObamaCare's number-one cheerleader, the Washington Post's Ezra Klein, admitted yesterday that, weeks before the disastrous launch of the ObamaCare website, he was hearing "some very ugly things about how the system was performing[.]" Klein says he didn't do any reporting on what would have been a very big scoop because he couldn’t "nail the story" down and "there was a wall of official denials from the Obama administration[.]" Oct 16, 2013 5:03 AM PT

Kos Diarist Gets ObamaCare Bill: 'What the Hell Kind of Reform Is This?'

Over at the hard-left Daily Kos, diarist Tirge Caps, who has a years-long history as a reliable left-wing Daily Kos diarist, lashed out at ObamaCare. After receiving a notice that said his monthly health insurance premiums will nearly double, Caps writes, "I am canceling insurance for us and I am not paying any fucking penalty. What the hell kind of reform is this?" Oct 15, 2013 2:18 PM PT

'Nichols' Review: Holy Grail for James Garner Fans Has Been Found

For 24 episodes, between September of 1971 and March of 1972, James Garner returned to the television Western a full ten-years after leaving "Maverick," the Western series that made him a star. "Nichols" was something entirely different, though, which is probably why it only lasted a single season. Two years later Garner would get his groove back in a major way with "The Rockford Files." And for over forty years, "Nichols" would remain unseen and become something of a Holy Grail among Garner fans like myself. Oct 15, 2013 1:11 PM PT

'Tea-Tards': OFA Shutdown Rally Draws Fewer than Two Dozen

As you can see in the photos above, a member of President Obama's political army, or someone welcomed among them, held a large sign attacking the Tea Party as "Tea-Tards." This of course will get none of the media play Sunday's much bigger rally got when some idiot showed up with a Confederate flag. Oct 15, 2013 12:08 PM PT

Hasselbeck Lifts 'Fox & Friends' By Double Digits

Deadline reports that during her first full month as the new co-host of "Fox & Friends," Elisabeth Hasselbeck has lifted the Fox News' number-one morning show by double digits. Over the past month, F& F has averaged 1.226 million viewers, a 16% increase. In the 25-54 demo, there has been a 22% jump to 289 thousand. Oct 15, 2013 11:31 AM PT

Nielsen Confirms Megyn Kelly Ratings Surge

Last week, Phil Griffin, president of MSNBC, asked the Nielsen Company to investigate a Tuesday surge in the ratings for Megyn Kelly's new primetime Fox News program. Griffin found the Tuesday surge "impossible" because it occurred the day after Kelly's new show premiered. Nielsen took another look and confirmed the surge: Oct 15, 2013 8:47 AM PT

NBC Poll: 25% of 'New American Center' Support Path to Citizenship

NBC News and Esquire Magazine teamed up for a poll that is now being hailed across all NBC platforms for finding the "New American Center." The poll finds that 51% of American are "bound by a surprising set of shared ideas." One finding NBC News is choosing not to highlight is that 75% of those in the New American Center oppose "immigration reforms that would provide a path to citizenship for those who came here illegally."
