White House PR Flack Dissembles Misinformation

The White House PR flack denies that the White House will save emails regarding health care and names of senders. He pretends to not understand a question about the National Archives saving all correspondence with the White House. He claims that the Obama administration only wants to answer misinformation. But why is misinformation a matter for the government? It is protected speech. If misinformation was banned most of what politicians say and what appears in government press releases would be banned. This is a blatant attempt to chill and to censor political speech in violation of the First Amendment.
