In case you missed it...

Tim Blair gives a pretty good outline (complete with links) of the Eason Jordan scandal and resignation. Who is Eason Jordan? He was the head of CNN, and in front of an international audience in Davos, Switzerland (including several a US Congressman and Senator) that the US military was targetting journalists in Iraq for death.

Why might you have missed this huge story? Because unless you caught Kurtz's apologia in the Washington Post or the NYT article today blasting bloggers, no one in the mainstream media bothered to cover the story until it was over. Don't believe me? Take a look.

Oh, and before you start jumping to conclusions about this being another case of trumped-up right wing outrage, I should point out that Representative Barney Frank was present at the meeting where Jordan made his remarks, and it was Frank who pressed Jordan the hardest for clarification and evidence to back up his claims.

You can find more here at Power Line.

EDIT: Iowahawk discovered the unreleased transcript.
