Debbie Wasserman Schultz called out by CNN's Anderson Cooper

DNC Chair and Broward Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz got called out today by CNN's Anderson Cooper over she misquoted a Los Angeles Times story regarding Mitt Romney’s stance on the Republican Party’s abortion platform plank.

Wasserman Schultz had said: "The Los Angeles Times’ reported yesterday that the platform was, and I quote, ‘written at the direction of Romney’s campaign.’

But Cooper said the quote “was ripped, in fact, out of a sentence.” The real LA Times piece said: “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.”

Cooper: “Do you at least acknowledge that the quote that you gave from The L.A. Times is completely incorrect?”

DWS: “No, I don’t acknowledge that. I know that is what you’re saying,... Anderson, what I’m saying is, it doesn’t matter.”

Cooper: “I think what you say does matter.. You’re quoting the LA Times and, again, you’ve misquoted them to back up a position."
