White House Not Collecting Emails..So They Say

The White House stated, " “get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy,” they “send it to" Sen Conryn sent a letter to the WH stating his concerns “about a new White House program to monitor American citizens' speech opposing your health care policies, and to seek your assurances that this program is being carried out in a manner consistent with the First Amendment and America's tradition of free speech and public discourse.”

Now the WH says it is not collecting emails:
The blog and tips email was because, Gibbs said, "we have seen, and as I've discussed from this podium, a lot of misinformation around health care reform. Some of it I think spread purposely. We have used on many occasions the Web site to debunk things that are simply not true. We ask people if they have questions about health care reform and about what they're hearing about its affects on them, to let us know and we'd provide them information to show that that wasn't true."
If the Obama administration has seen a lot of misinformation around health care reform, then why don't they just address what they've seen. Why do they need people to report stuff to them? I mean...they're already seeing the stuff, right?
