Obama Launches ‘Attack Watch’ Website

by Charles C. W. Cooke

A sinister new page has appeared on Barack Obama’s website, featuring a form that invites the public to report “attacks” on the president. The vigilant are given the opportunity to provide the “content of [an] attack or link” and then choose from a drop-down list of sources, which seems to be mostly synonyms for what was previously called the “free press.” “Attacks” can ostensibly come in the form of TV interviews, public statements, forwarded e-mails, rumors, TV ads, video ads, robo-calls, websites, and blogs.

One can only presume, thus, that National Review Online will be keeping the service busy.
