Tom Ricks proves that the truth doesn't live long—only about a minute or so—on Fox:

Dylan Byers says that Ricks told Fox News that he thought they were hyping the story in his pre-interview, but I guess they didn't think he'd actually say it on the air:

After he went off the air, Ricks said he “saw some surprised faces in the hallway.”

“One staff person said she thought I had been rude. My feeling was that they asked my opinion and I gave it,” Ricks wrote.
