From LGF comes news from DAVOS:

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.

For an "astute blogger," you're not very aware of blogging etiquette. It's customary when you track back to another blog to include a LINK to said blog in your posting. Kindly include a link to my piece you tracked back to, or I will have to delete your trackback. Reciprocity is a GOOD thing; mooching is bad.

From CNN Public Information:

Many blogs have taken Mr. Jordan's remarks out of context. Eason Jordan does not believe the U.S. military is trying to kill journalists. Mr. Jordan simply pointed out the facts: While the majority of journalists killed in Iraq have been slain at the hands of insurgents, the Pentagon has also noted that the U.S. military on occasion has killed people who turned out to be journalists. The Pentagon has apologized for those actions.

Mr. Jordan was responding to an assertion by Cong. Frank that all 63 journalist victims had been the result of "collateral damage."

OK, Mr CNN Public Information Robot:

Show us the context. If Jordan was taken out of context, show us the transcript from Davos.
