Well, if the person involved is a longtime Democratic Party operative like Donna Brazile and you're running Time.com, you let her bury her "regret" without a genuine apology deep inside a column conveniently released on a Friday afternoon in the middle of March Madness and the St. Patrick's Day weekend, and then let her go on her merry way insisting that she didn't do what she supposedly regretted doing.
Hot Air editor Jazz Shaw offered an excellent piece on Tuesday completely debunking the false claim put forth on the Friday edition of MSNBC’s All In from fill-in host Steve Kornacki that the House Select Committee on Benghazi is the “longest running investigation” of its kind.
