MORE SMOKE AND MIRRORS… Obama Admin Promotes AP Healthcare Article It Gave to AP -- By Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit

The 21st Century has made government propaganda techniques more obvious even as it becomes more insidious. Case in point: An Associated Press article running tonight highlighting nearly 500,000 applications for Obamacare at federal and state government exchange websites.

The AP article by White House correspondent Julie Pace is based on figures provided to the AP by Obama administration officials to whom the AP granted anonymity. The AP obligingly used the White House’s figures for the headline: AP Sources: 476,000 Obamacare Applications Filed
 
Obama’s press operation took to Twitter to promote the article soon after it was published. Jay Carney, Tara McGuinness and Bobby Whithorne each Tweeted the article.

The article does report that the administration refuses to release the number of people who have actually enrolled in Obamacare thorough the federal exchange, but by leading with the applications number for federal and state enrollments fed it by the White House, the AP makes it appear the administration is starting to see success with the troubled program.

Julie Pace, who did a fawning interview of Obama during the shutdown, gives Obama a pass on responsibility for the disastrous rollout of the program that will be his presidential legacy, saying only that it is an embarrassment for a frustrated Obama:
