After Linda Douglass combatted clips of President Obama saying health care reform would "eliminate" private insurance with Youtube video responses of her own, the White House Communications Director of the Office of Health Reform appeared on "Reliable Sources" to explain why the comments were "taken out of context."

She also announces the launch of a new website about health care reform, pointing out the misinformation and what she calls "disinformation" - statements that are meant to mislead.

She also comments on the White House's "fishy" email-program, soliciting misinformation about the health care reform proposal. "There's a lot of effort to scare people," Douglass explains. "There is no list being compiled... but if there's a rumor going around... let's see what the truth is."

When asked (at 6:00) to comment on Rush Limbaugh comparing the White House's health care logo to a Nazi swastika, Douglass remarks: "I just don't even want to say about something like that... People are saying crazy things right now."
