Barack Obama launched www.fightthesmears.com, a new webpage that:
- Informs the people about the rumors smearing Obama
- Stating the truth around the issues, with video and links to support the argument
- Exposing the people that are behind the unjust attacks (with links to their sites and mainstream media reports)
- Urging people to report smears to the campaign and email them to email@example.com
It is a move that has got mainstream media publicity and a great tool to defend against Internet rumors becoming campaign issues.
