President Obama next week will champion his health care law on WebMD, which bills itself as the “leading source of health information for consumers and health care professionals.”

The White House says Obama will answer questions about health care and the Affordable Care Act from WebMD users during a conversation with the site's health care reform expert, Lisa Zamosky.

The interview will air March 14 and WebMD users can pose questions atWebMD.com/AskObama.

“The White House says Obama will answer questions about health care and the Affordable Care Act from WebMD users”

Oops. I spotted a typo. I believe that was supposed to say:

“The White House says Obama will LIE ABOUT questions about health care and the Affordable Care Act from WebMD users”

Why else would WebMD provide a forum for this snake-oil salesman?

All questions are welcome. But WebMD will only pick out softballs so as not to cause the one who's name we dare not speak any embarasment.

I'm not sure if this is preaching to the choir, or preaching to an empty room, or both.

For all the good this will do Obamacare, he might as well just play some more golf.

Is there an alternative to WEBMD? Maybe Mayo Clinic?

WebMD is crap if you are looking for the straight scoop about any illness. You have to go to 3 to 5 pages filled with ads from drug companies.

It has been my experience that if I want unbiased information directly from researchers studying an illness I am better off going to wikipedia.

Wikipedia. Type in any illness and see the difference. Actual researchers supply the info.

How could you ask Wikipedia a question?

I do research for a living. If you check the references on Wikipedia you will see that the top researchers are supplying the info. And it is unbiased information meaning that no one is paying them. You want to know anything about any disease look it up and then compare what you find with WebMD.

Wikipedia has been given a bad wrap, because "anyone" can post what they want, right? But only the people who are interested in that one disease are going to post and they are always the people who know the most about it.

WebMD is a very pale comparison. Now they are going to carry Obama's water as they carry the water for the drug companies.
