DNC Chair, Debbie Wasserman-Shultz Torn To Shreds By Anderson Cooper Over Lies And Misquotes

By Susan Duclos

Wow, between Anderson Cooper and Wolf Blitzer, people have to be wondering if CNN was taken over by the pod people.

Blitzer had previously annihilated DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz over her lies about the Romney/Ryan Medicare platform, calling her out on her lies every time she opened her mouth and spewed them. (Video of the Blitzer interview here)

Below is last night's Anderson Cooper, in a "Keeping Them Honest" segment, where he also calls Wasserman-Schultz out on lies, specifically an email sent to supporters where she misquotes an LA Times article. When she attempts to tell him "it doesn't matter", Cooper corrects her, saying "It does, it matters if you are misquoting the LA Times to say something they didn't say. You're saying it is proof of your position and it's actually not proof of your position."

Cooper continues "Just as you don’t like being misquoted, I don’t like being misquoted, I’m sure the LA Times doesn’t like being misquoted to back up your political position. I don’t understand why you’d need to do that."

Wasserman-Schultz then admits she will continue to use false claims.


Wasserman-Schultz's email quote that Cooper nails her on was:

"Guess what? The Los Angeles Times reported yesterday that the platform was, and I quote, written at the direction of Romney's campaign."

The actual quote from the LA Times article:

There is no doubt about who is in charge, of course. Delegates for presumptive nominee Mitt Romney are voting down substantive changes to the platform language that was written at the direction of Romney’s campaign. The biggest question is whether the tone remains polite, as it was at the outset of two days of deliberations, or whether dissenters spoil the image of harmony that the Romney campaign is working hard to produce. 

This is the second time that a CNN host has caught Wasserman-Schultz red handed, called her out in a consistent manner and shown her to be nothing more than a very bad liar and unapologetic about her lies.

Whoever was responsible for making Debs the face of the Democratic Party should be fired because they are obviously as incompetent as she is.
