House Majority Leader Hoyer: Public Option? Meh, Whatever | Main | Corrected Post: The Red Dawn Remake

Another Thought On AP's "Fact Check"

Last week I noted that Gibbs had scolded the media for spreading the supposed "misinformation" that ObamaCare opponents are spreading.

"What more can we do?," asked a member of the press solicitiously, actually seeking guidance from the White House on how they could help the team more, and Gibbs suggested they should be more aggressive about debunking the supposedly-false "misinformation."

Gibbs played the Liberal Unity card several more times since then, claiming at one point the government option controversy was entirely "contrived" by the media.

And AP stepped right up to the plate, didn't they? It worked. Obama knows his actual constituents -- the liberal media -- and how to rouse them into action.
