Honestly, I did not see this coming.

“Now, we did not edit that out. That was not our edit. We didn’t include it because we only saw the shorter of two clips that CBS did air,” Todd said.

“We should have looked at both and checked for a full transcript, a mistake I wish we had not made and one that I wish I had not have [sic] made.”

“The second part of the attorney general’s answer would have put it in the proper context and had I seen that part of the interview, I would not have framed the conversation the way I did. I am obviously very sorry for that mistake. We strive to do better going forward.”

You could see it all over his face – how much he hated having to make that apology.  But it’s more than I expected from him, so credit where it’s due, I guess.
