On the Sunday, May 19 edition of CNN's Reliable Sources, host Howard Kurtz read a statement from Jonathan Karl, chief White House Correspondent for ABC News in response to his reporting on altered emails related to the Sunday talk show talking points following the attacks on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya in September 2012. Karl now expresses regret about his original reporting on May 10th on the Benghazi emails. The statement reads:

With the studio's new technical tools and data visualization capabilities, the network is better positioned to tell the story for viewers on data-heavy nights like election night or during breaking news. The studio is a dual purpose facility; it has a dividing glass wall that enables the network to have simultaneous broadcasts in two separate studios or it can be one open space for big production programming, such as Election Night 2012.
