Accuracy in Media

During an appearance on MSNBC’s Jansing and Co. on Monday, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz defended President Obama’s pledge that “if you like your plan you can keep it,” by telling host Chris Jansing that Americans were not “myzeld” by Obama and blamed insurance companies for canceling grandfathered policies:

At the end of the day, Americans were not only not myzeld by the President, the overwhelming majority of Americans are already insured. And what we’re talking about here is insurance companies who chose not to keep the plan that they could have grandfathered, and they chose to change the plan that they were already offering to people they already insured the individual market.

Myzeld? It’s obvious that Wasserman Schultz was trying to say “misled,” but botched it so badly that the only explanation is that she must have been reading from a teleprompter, meaning her “guest” appearance was scripted and approved by MSNBC.

That wasn’t an interview, but rather a DNC infomercial designed to defend Obama from charges that he lied about people being able to keep their insurance plan and doctor under Obamacare. The goal was clearly to shift the blame to the insurance companies, who are only following the law.

    If the White House issued a statement that the earth is spherical, I would apply for membership in the Flat Earth Society.

    Typical FL Politician. Never questioning the party line and repeating inane talking points, believing if she lies enough times, the American voter will think it’s the truth.
    The Fl sun must have turned her and Rubio’s brain to mush.
