A few years from now, when people ask themselves”wasn’t there a DNC chairman named Wasserman-something” they’ll remember this interview as one of her most embarrassing. It’s probably not as good as lying about the Israeli Ambassador, or looking silly on Anderson Cooper, or being named the “least effective surrogate,” or getting called out on Mediscare lies, or claiming not to to know which candidate the Obama Superpac is supporting — but it’s memorable.
Many viewers immediately challenged DWS:
@dwstweets can you please for the love of this country please tell the truth. Flat out liar!!! Stop covering up the murder of Americans!!!

@dwstweets You made a complete “Ass” of yourself, the Democratic party and our President on Piers Morgan on CNN.

Morgan earned compliments for his willingness to interrupt the White House mouthpiece:
Piers Morgan laying the smack down on Debbie Blue Blob Schultz.

Not surprisingly, Morgan had his critics. Apparently his schtick wouldn’t cut it on MSNBC:
Piers Morgan pisses me off! That’s why I strongly prefer MSNBC over CNN!

And some said that he didn’t provide balance:
@cnnPiers Morgan Priebus crush? Debbie Wasserman Schultz hate-on? Quite the show of inequality.

Here’s an idea: The next time Reince Priebus (the Chairman of the Republican National Committee) goes on CNN to defend a Republican administration trying to hide the truth about a terrorist attack that killed four American citizens — including an Ambassador — then Morgan can rip into him.
