I actually suspect that Jack, Tom and Libby sat around a table together figured out what was the best way to do some damage control for everyone and then they each played the roles they were given.
Tom was probably told - "OK you are to feign outrage and demand a retraction and that will pre-empt the Liberals from trying to exploit the issue against you in Outremont". Libby was probably told "Sorry, it will have to look like you've been carpeted for about 24 hours so that we can ride out this news cycle - so just say you goofed", Jack's role was to appear on a few talk shows and repeat the talking points ad nauseum and then they probably had a group hug before going out and facing the cameras.
