    Chris Henry: Benghazi tape should trump Rice video

    I saw that for two days in a row, The Bee has had the Ray Rice story on the front page. It seems attention is drawn to the fact the NFL knew about what happened, leveled a mild punishment against Rice, then increased the suspension once the public saw the video. Now there’s demand for Commissioner...
