This afternoon, White House senior communications advisor Tara McGuinness noted that comedy site FunnyorDie.com was the number one source of referrals to HealthCare.gov, thanks to President Obama’s prerecorded interview with comedian and actor Zach Galifianakis.
Now, the Department of Health and Human Services is reporting that its number one source of referrals garnered 19,000 clicks through to HealthCare.gov.
That number does seem rather small, but as the Huffington Post’s Sam Stein points out, that number includes only those who clicked at the end of the video.
White House flack Dan Pfeiffer attempted to clarify things for Stein.
As long as we have the White House’s attention, there’s still one number we’re waiting to hear.
