<p>Jim Acosta emulated a P.R. flack for the Obama administration on the 1 April 2014 edition of <em>CNN Newsroom</em>, as he hyped how the White House is "on track to hit seven million signing up" for ObamaCare. Acosta gushed that "if ObamaCare were a patient, this would be a pretty miraculous recovery, when you consider...that disastrous rollout in October and November."<br /><br />The correspondent later touted the development as "pretty big news over here at the White House. They're reacting with a lot of glee and happiness, I can tell you." Acosta and anchor Carol Costello credited the President's Internet video with comedian Zach Galifianakis for part of ObamaCare's apparent success:<br /><br />JIM ACOSTA: Those Web videos, like the one you just showed with Zach Galifianakis, attracted 30 million views in the last six weeks. And they had about 100 celebrities and athletes Tweeting out their support for ObamaCare. So, for all of those people out there who were...complaining that they didn't go to through traditional media...this alternative media strategy did work, in many ways, for this White House.</p>
