A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

CNN's big problem: For an incredibly complete account of this which I will be quickly summarizing, check out Captain's Quarters. (Where does he get the time?)

In short, CNN's top executive, Eason Jordan, in a forum discussion at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, accused American troops of targeting journalists for assassination.

This is the same Eason Jordan who confessed to covering up the crimes of Saddam Hussein so that CNN could maintain a presence in Iraq.

Jordan offered no evidence to backup this claim, and despite the claims of two separate individuals who were present -- including one who has some admiration for him -- is now saying he never made any such claim.

After reading Capt. Ed's reporting, let me say that I lean strongly toward the belief that Jordan did make the statements attributed to him -- a blood libel against the U.S. military.

It's obvious that Jordan's claim is untrue, because U.S. troops are good shots -- there'd be a lot more dead journalists if they were being targeted.

Jordan's decision to peddle these baseless, outlandish conspiracy theories shows that he is either a lunatic or an evil, despicable human being -- in either case, he's unqualified to head a major American news operation.

Jordan should've been fired two years ago when he admitted sacrificing CNN's credibility for access to Saddam Hussein's Iraq. He should be fired by CNN immediately if they have any interest in saving what remains of their credibilty. (Don't worry, i'm sure Al-Jazeera will quickly offer him a job.)
