I thought the White House Spokesman handled it extremely well. He was avoiding her questions because of how off-topic it was. This man was also led
to believe he was on the program to talk about Health Care Reform, and it appears a bait & switch tactic was used and he was doing his best not to go
All it appears is that Obama, a Tech-savy individual, knows how email chains can get out of control with disinformation, I mean that is why we have
SNOPES and other sites that debunk most of the stupid emails we receive. In a situation such as this, where accurate communication of information is

This appears to be folks reading way too much into things. The administration wants to DEBUNK lies, myths, and false information. Everyone knows
email is not private, and that anytime you email any public figure your email becomes public record.
If someone is so ashamed at what they have written and afraid that in the future when the records become public then they probably should not have
been emailing people such garbage in the first place. There is no law that says I am not allowed to forward an email I receive, unless it contains
sensitive information, and this is literally common sense. If you don't want the world to know how you really feel about something then don't email

The administration is offering to honestly answer questions that might arise from such chain letters, and to communicate that via email. That is it.
The same type of spin was put on the "Death Panel" argument and even know there is back peddling to recover from that gross misreading of the
legislation and how some extremists tried to interpret it.
Common sense here people, seriously.
