Report: Healthcare website failed test ahead of rollout

Washington (CNN) - The president's healthcare sign-up web page was supposed to handle tens of thousands of people at once. But in a trial run days before its launch, just a few hundred users flatlined the site.

Despite the problems, federal health officials pushed aside the crash cart and rolled out HealthCare.gov on October 1 as planned, The Washington Post reported.

    4th story posted in one hour.

    CNN is posting glitchy website stories faster than they posted shutdown stories while the shutdown was underway.

    I keep looking for that "liberal media bias". Where is it?

    And why isn't the fact that the government didn't actually BUILD the site being more prominently featured in these stories? I read the full article, and didn't see mention of private contractors until down near the bottom of the story.
