Isn’t there enough misinformation without stuff like this?

* The AP needs a babysitter in its Chicago office. To wit…
Actually, those were problems with the national website, as reported by the Tribune and others today, not with the state site.
The error rate at that Chicago AP office is getting really high and I’ve been meaning to write about it, so now’s a good time to start. They did change the copy, although without admitting the original mistake…
* There was one problem with the Illinois site…
I saw that as well today and it puzzled me, especially since that question had a lot to do with whether you were then directed to the state’s Medicaid site or the federal Obamacare site.
Anyone else having problems with either the state or federal sites today?
…Adding… The media hype about overloaded websites is a bit puzzling to me.
When people stand in line for hours to buy an iPhone that is out of stock by the time they get to the front of the line it’s evidence of Apple’s amazing popularity.
When it takes forever to download a new iPhone operating system, it’s because Apple is so darned popular.
These are first-day glitches. If the problem persists, then it’s an issue.
