Eason Jordan

Eason Jordan is executive vice president and chief news executive for CNN. At the recent World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Mr. Jordan apparently told the audience that "he knew of 12 journalists who had not only been killed by U.S. troops in Iraq, but they had in fact been targeted." Apparently, the anti-US folks in the crowd praised Mr. Jordan for his bravery in bringing this to light. Thus far, no video ot transcript has been released, and Mr. Jordan is not granting interviews. The blogosphere has swarmed the story, but the mainstream media has thus far ignored it. Today's Washington Times is the first major newspaper to comment on it. Hugh Hewitt has a transcript of his interview with Rony Abovitz, who heard Mr. Jordan's comments firsthand and was the first to bring this to the public. Unless Mr. Jordan can provide documentation for his accusation, I believe he should be terminated from CNN for his malacious slander against the U.S. military. Captain's Quarters Blog has been at the forefront of covering this story. Check there for updates.
