The Eason Jordan Controversy CNN
executive Eason Jordan
reportedly told attendees at the recent DAVOS conference American troops had targeted reporters
in Iraq,and had,perhaps, killed 12.
Since then, having been challenged, he has been backwatering like crazy : " Oh, I never said that ! You know me better than that",etc.,etc.,etc.
In truth, the exact opposite of Jordan's now-denied charge is true.
Reporters in Iraq have been "targeting" American and Coalition troops,and shilling for the "heroic resistance
" (I prefer to call them terrorists
!) for quite some time.
The most recent incident of which I am aware occurred on Sunday,January 30,2005,when some of those "victimized reporters" positioned themselves-with cameras in perfect focus-to capture on tape the explosion of a car bomb near a polling station : an explosion, I might add, that claimed several Iraqi lives.
Remember the pictures on TV ? Run them through your mind.
Then.... BOOM !
The car explodes...and, once again,"targeted-and-victimized reporters" are complicit in multiple murder
If you watched TV that day,you saw the proof !
UPDATE: 02/11/05 Jordan has resigned from CNN !!
