Quick Hit: CNN Apologizes For Hillary Appearing To Laugh About Benghazi

I ask how could CNN not have caught this technical glitch before airing the segment? Actually, after a heartfelt set of comments about the tragedy of benghazi, it would take a moron to connect the comments with the obviously poorly edited laughter.  But, in this era of political "gotcha' and GOP that wants Benghazi as an issue for 2016, Banfield clarification and apology are most apropos.

Ashleigh Banfield
“I want to be real clear here,” Banfield said immediately after the pair of clips aired. “Those were two separate sound bites that we tried to get to you as quickly as possible, what we call tape turns. One was about Benghazi and another that was completely separate and a different time was about her thoughts about about 2016.” 
“That was our mistake,” she added. “Let’s be very clear. The secretary of state was not laughing about the previous comments about Benghazi.”
