MSNBC: 'GOP Flubs ObamaCare Launch'

October 18th, 2013 12:09 PM

In today's "This Can't Possibly Be True - But It IS" segment, some genius at MSNBC during Friday's Morning Joe actually put a chyron on the bottom of the screen that read "GOP Flubs ObamaCare Launch."

Better still, at times the chyron was underneath former Obama press secretary Robert Gibbs:

Priceless, isn't it?

Now in fairness to this "genius," a point being made by some on this panel - and many in the media the past few weeks - was that if the government hadn't been shut down, Republicans could have focused more on the disastrous ObamaCare launch thereby making it more possible that the individual mandate would have been delayed.

Frankly, I contest this notion as did conservative author Ann Coulter during her recent interview with NewsBusters.

Republicans using ObamaCare as a wedge in the continuing resolution and debt ceiling debates brought more attention to the program's failures not less.

The fact that a number of Republicans were protesting against ObamaCare as the launch was crashing and burning added to the negative coverage and perception.

But don't expect liberal media members - particularly on MSNBC - to see it that way.
