Well, who'd have thought it would happen? I certainly thought he would tough it out. If he'd been straightforward in the first place, he'd probably still be in his job.
As Little Green Footballs says: I’d still like to see the video.
Now, a question for Normblog's interrogator, the all-knowing Jenni Murray: when did you first hear about the Jordan affair? If you relied on your own network for information, I doubt that you even have a clue who he is.
Here's Hugh Hewitt's post from last night:
At this hour, if you type "Eason Jordan" into the search engine of the Los Angeles Times, there will be no matches. None. The Times is not alone in having utterly failed its readers. A senior news executive has been forced to resign from an international news powerhouse for remarks he made about the military, the story is two weeks old, and the "paper of record" of the West Coast does not have story on it in its archives...
PS: A little background information from the NY Times:
In April 2003, he [Jordan] wrote an Op-Ed article in The New York Times saying that CNN had essentially suppressed news of brutalities in Saddam Hussein's Iraq, saying he thought the reports could have jeopardized the lives of Iraqis, particularly those on CNN's Baghdad staff.
Jeremy Brown goes to the CNN site and hunts for a needle in a haystack.
