UPDATE: Huppenthal Slap Fest? Not Quite.

Earlier, we reported that Blog for Arizona's David Safier broke a story about a student journalist who did a video interview with Republican Senator John Huppenthal here.

Tonight, we found out that not only did the blogger Democratic Diva break the story, but she also printed a retraction tonight, saying that evidently, Huppenthal returned to finish the interview with the student (although that's never shown in both the long and short format videos), and that Arizona Capitol Times' Yellow Sheet reported that the student isn't happy that the video is being used to make Huppenthal, a candidate for Superintendent of Public Instruction, look like a political buffoon.

Well, Huppenthal was co-sponsor of SB 1070, so...

You can read the Diva's latest here. And David Safier's take here.

Above is the short version of the student's interview, but you can watch the longer version here.
