Fight The Power

12Jun08

Barack has a new site launched, fight the smears, to respond to rumors at the speed of the internet.

The site is a response to the realities of a brave new world, where information travels 24 hours a day on blogs and voters are increasingly turning to the Internet for information. It’s a particular problem for Obama, a relative newcomer to national politics who is still unknown to many voters and has been the target of persistent misinformation campaigns online.

It’s also a problem for Barack because it seems that all of his political associations have been people of unscrupulous character.

E-mails about Obama rank No. 2 on the list of “Hottest Urban Legends” on snopes.com, an Internet rumor-debunking site, behind e-mail greeting cards that could expose computers to viruses.

The campaign debunks the Michelle “Whitey” tape rumors of the past few weeks on the site.
