This morning, half the blogosphere — including yours truly — fell lock, stock and two smoking barrels for the "Resistance is futile, the public option is dead" line being pushed by Matt Drudge and the AP, which used an oddly-written story that didn’t have any authoritative named White House sources making that assertion featured in the story’s headline. So I shouldn’t have been surprised when, on CBS’ Face the Nation, President Obama’s press secretary Robert Gibbs took great pains to point out that the reports that got everyone’s undies (including mine) in a twist were, ahem, not true:

“The president believes this option of a government plan is the best way to provide choice and competition,” Gibbs told CBS.He added: “I think most of what you are seeing on TV, no offense, is good TV, and that’s about it.”
