The Washington Post’s fact checker
has awarded Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz four Pinnochios for her charge that Washington Examiner columnist Philip Klein “deliberately” misquoted her.
Klein had wrote that Wasserman Schultz said, “We know, and I’ve heard no less than Ambassador Michael Oren say this, that what the Republicans are doing is dangerous for Israel.”
Oren denied he had made such a comment and in an appearance on Fox News, Wasserman Schultz said, “That comment was reported by a conservative newspaper. It’s not surprising that they would deliberately misquote me.”
Unfortunately for Wasserman Schultz, her comments were recorded and Klein posted them and shared them with the Post.
“Klein’s quote was exactly accurate, meaning Wasserman Schultz falsely accused the Examiner of misquoting her,” the Post concluded it its fact check, “The DNC chair earns Four Pinocchios.”
