Sorry isn't enough for such journalistic negligence

Re ' '60 Minutes' retracts its account of Benghazi" (Page A8, Nov. 9): It's great that Lara Logan and CBS admitted that they "made a mistake" by giving airtime to some half-baked Rambo tale from a rent-a-cop peddling a book. But they should have known that security contractor Dylan Davies told the FBI a different version of the Benghazi events well in advance of airing the segment, so calling it a "mistake" is a gross understatement.

By the way, after pounding this story into the heads of their viewers, when can we expect Fox News to admit negligence as well?
