On Monday, Barack Obama’s director of new media Macon Phillips called for Obamista volunteers to inform the White House about any “fishy” emails or web postings out there opposing the administration’s efforts to nationalize health care.
There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we canâ€™t keep track of all of them here at the White House, weâ€™re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note that Phillips already knows, even before reading any such communications, that the other side of the story, counter-arguments or expressions of opposition to Obamacare, intrinsically represent “disinformation” and are “fishy.” Better start making a list of sources of all that wrongthink and identifying those responsible.
