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.'”
The whole report is unsparingly brutal:
Both O’Donnell and Crawford make the claim that had the GOP not “focused” on the shutdown that the “complete failure” of the ObamaCare launch would be driving the media.
The media have been throwing this talking point in the face of the GOP for two weeks now. Now that the shutdown looks as though it is coming to an end, the media can put their money where their mouth is.
