The Los Angeles Times says sorry after running a story that falsely implicated rap mogul P-Diddy in a mid-1990s assault on Tupac Shakur. Plus, as the campaign trail gets pricey, media organizations cut back on sending reporters to cover the candidates.

Our panel of bloggers dissects those stories and more. Joining in are blogger Jasmyne Cannick, Patrice Elizabeth Grell Yursik of Afrobella, and Robert Redding of the Redding News Review.
