Just out Tuesday morning, a rebuttal video by the White House, featuring Linda Douglass, spokesman for the Obama health overhaul initiative who puts out fire lit by Drudge.
This via Politico's Mike Allen:
"Hi. I'm Linda Douglass. I'm the communications director for the White House Office of Health Reform, and one of my jobs is to keep track of all the DISINFORMATION that's out there about health-insurance reform. And there are a LOT of very deceiving headlines out there right now, such as this one -- take a look at this one.
This one says, 'Uncovered Video: Obama Explains How His Health Care Plan Will Eliminate PRIVATE Insurance.' Well, nothing can be farther from the truth. You know the people who always try to SCARE people whenever you try to bring them health-insurance reform are at it again. And they're taking sentences and phrases out of context, and they're cobbling them together to leave a VERY false impression. The truth is that the president has been talking to the American people a LOT about health-insurance reform and what is at stake for them.
