Rony Abovitz, the blogger at the centre of the Eason Jordan storm, appeared on BBC Radio 4's PM progamme a short time ago. (The site link is still playing yesterday's show at the moment. Abovitz's interview, when it is up and running, should start at around the 40 min mark):

He [Jordan] sort of froze. It looked as if he'd just been caught with his pants down...

Stewart Purvis, former ITN editor and now a professor of journalism at City University, took part in the debate that followed. It transpires that British journalists also witnessed Jordan's comments at Davos, but chose not to report them.
