White House Introduces 'Healthcare Myth' Fact Check Website

The White House is introducing a new health care website section today that “debunks some common myths” and provides visitors “with online tools and content to share the facts with friends, family and anyone else in your social network.” Click here.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) write in a USA Today op-ed, condemn the “ugly campaign” this August to “to disrupt public meetings and prevent members of Congress and constituents from conducting a civil dialogue.” “Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American,” write the two House leaders.

Jon Stewart took on these town hall uprisings and their leaders in two segments, the first focusing on the media hypocrisy over the coverage of these events, and the second mocking the "death panel" debate.
