Eason Jordan, the CNN exec who admitted that they deliberately misreported news from Saddam's Iraq on behalf of Saddam's regime in order to keep their Baghdad office open claimed that the US military in Iraq had murdered 12 journalists in order to cover up aspect of the war. He quickly backtracked, a little, but the charge is essentially still out there.
I think this outrageous anti-American charge reveals a lot about CNN and the Old Media in general: Both - (like most college faculties) - are dominated by Leftwingers: and they are willing to lie in order to hurt America.
Jordan's lie is essentially like Rather's lie.
REMEMBER THIS TOO: this charge comes from the same folks who - all over Iraq -somehow always manage to show up with cameras just BEFORE a suicide bomber blows himself up and murders innocent Iraqis or American and Iraqi Soldiers. Obviously, they're always tipped-off by the terrorists as to when and where an attack will occur and all they do is rush to the scene in order to get video. This makes their coverage essentially function as propaganda for the terrorists. People like Jordan and Old Media companies like CNN essentially function as propagandists for the enemy.
As such, it is further proof that MANY in the Old Media are not only NOT OBJECTIVE, but they're actively supporting our enemy.
They're worse than liars; they're traitors and accomplices of terrorists and murderers.
