    An American Ambassador was killed for the first time in over three decades.

    Re: 'We were wrong': CBS's Lara Logan apologizes for Benghazi report

    I feel bad for CBS and think the apology was handled with grace. What happened to them could have happened to any of the major news outlets. Will happen in the future from time to time and will be instructive for journos and credulous readers/listeners everywhere.

    From the Christian Science Monitor:

    "There are so many people out there who have the potential to deceive a news organization," said Jeffrey Fager, CBS News chairman and "60 Minutes" executive producer, in an interview with The Associated Press on Friday. "We do our best and I think we do very well at spotting them. This time, I really feel like one got through and it's extremely disappointing."

    ...[Dylan Davies's] story had been quickly doubted, and his credibility crumbled with a New York Times report late Thursday that revealed the FBI said the story Davies told them didn't match what he told CBS. Lara Logan apologizes for '60 Minutes' Benghazi report - CSMonitor.com

    Right after the event and during the election Faux kept referring to unnamed sources on the ground. Wonder if he was one of them.

    That doesn't say what they were trying to distract from. And we're quite a ways away from your comments about "ratings," etc.

    So now a 60 minutes story is about FOX?

    Amazing, isn't it, how Fox has become the story and not the attack that killed our Ambassador? What is it about people like you who buy the Obama rhetoric and look for every opportunity to defend the incompetence?

    No, Faux and the Right Wing politicized the death of the Ambassador, that is the story. Show me some evidence of wrongdoing and I will reconsider. I suspect if none ever appears, you wont.

    Politicized the death of an Ambassador? What would you have them do, ignore the story? I am sure that it what Obamabots wanted but the reality is Obama incompetence again on full display and people like you don't like it. If the NDA's aren't evidence, the fact that no one has been prosecuted isn't evidence. and the fact that we are over a year later with no action I guess it is going to be hard to convince you of anything.

    What story? About the company of Marines being ordered to stand down?, the AC130? the jet fighter? The armed drone? Reporting it is great, making up **** isnt. NO one prosecuted for what? This is that conspiracy theory logic. There was indeed Americans killed, the RW hates the administration, no on has been prosecuted=coverup.

    Fourteen months later, do we have the facts about Benghazi?
