Huffington Post apologizes to Andrew Breitbart for accusing him of doctoring video

I guess that we will have to wait and see whether The New Republic, which also made the same claim, will also apologize. From Fox News:

The story was ultimately removed from the website and an editor’s note was posted saying that, “a viewing of the clip in question clearly shows that he did not. We regret the error, have removed the story, and apologize to Mr. Breitbart.”
Some staffers at the website, who were unable to reveal their names for fear of retribution, told FOX411 that they weren’t surprised at the error.
“The goal of the site is aggregation, not news generation. We’re chasing traffic and there isn’t always time to make sure that everything is accurate,” one staffer admitted. "We're really just a factory for links." . . .
