A Timeline of The Downfall of 60 Minutes’ Benghazi Story: 
October 27: The 60 Minutes Benghazi report airs, featuring an interview with their “eyewitness,” a British security contractor using the pseudonym “Morgan Jones” (His real name is later revealed to be Dylan Davies.) He describes climbing a 12 foot wall at the diplomatic compound on the night of the attack, dispatching a terrorist with a rifle butt, and seeing Ambassador Chris Stevens’ dead body in a local hospital. 
October 28-30: Conservative media and Republican lawmakers laud CBS. Fox co-host Steve Doocy proclaims, ”60 Minutes doesn’t cover phony scandals.” Senator Lindsey Graham announces that he plans to hold up all presidential nominations until Benghazi witnesses are made available for questioning by Congress.
October 31-November 1: Washington Post reveals a major flaw in 60 Minutes witness Dylan Davies’ story. His contractor’s incident report contradicts his claim that he was at the Benghazi compound the night of the attack.
November 2-6: CBS "aggressively defend[s]" its report in comments to The New York Times. Additionally, CBS News Chairman Jeff Fager tells The Huffington Post’s Michael Calderone that he’s “proud” of the 60 Minutes report and “ ’confident’ the sources appearing on the Oct. 27 broadcast ’told accurate versions of what happened that night.’ 
November 7: CBS’ defense of its report finally collapses, when the New York Times reports that Davies told the FBI he was nowhere near the Benghazi compound the night of the attack.
CBS pulls the report from its website and YouTube channel that night, and announces that they are “currently looking into this serious matter to determine if he misled us, and if so, we will make a correction.” 
November 8: CBS issues an apology on CBS This Morning. Lara Logan says, ”We were wrong. We made a mistake,” and adds that 60 Minutes “will correct the record on our broadcast on Sunday night.”

    Ed Bradley is rolling in his grave. If he were alive, he probably would have busted his own people on this.
