Liberal anchor Ed Schultz on Monday finally admitted that his Obamacare prediction from last December was wrong. On December 11, 2013, the Ed Show host prognosticated, "[ObamaCare enrollment is] going to hit five million by March 1st...Five million people signed up by March 1st. Get your tapes rolling at home folks 'cause it's going to be a big 'I told you so.'"
On Monday, he conceded, "You know, I've got to apologize...I said some months ago that it was going to be five million people by March 1 and the Washington Post really took issue with that and I apologize tonight." It was the Post's Erik Wemple who first noted the failed prediction and the attempts to cover up the botched claim. The anchor then lashed out at the paper. [See video below. MP3 audio here.]
