(CNN) - Barack Obama's campaign has launched a Web site designed to directly confront internet rumors about the Illinois senator, Time Magazine's Karen Tumulty first reported.
“The Obama campaign isn’t going to let dishonest smears spread across the internet unanswered," Obama campaign spokesman Tommy Vietor said. "Whenever challenged with these lies we will aggressively push back with the truth and help our supporters debunk the false rumors floating around the internet. This website is an action center that allows supporters to upload their address books and send emails to all of their friends. It’s not enough to just know the truth, we have to be proactive and fight back."
