Alpha Bravo this is Pelican One: Standby DUSTBIN on my third “NOW” – Break – NOW:NOW: ……

It is a true phrase that when your enemies are destroying themselves, it is best just to get out of their way. However, it is also true that schadenfreude requires that you take a peak or two in-process. I am going to let Sisyphean Musings do the heavy lifting here.

In some ways, you have to feel sorry for ‘ole Eason Jordan at CNN.

But not really.

If you ever wondered why at ever base from Alaska to Baghdad it is all Fox News on the monitors and very little CNN, this story should help explain it.

During one of the discussions about the number of journalists killed in the Iraq War, Eason Jordan asserted that he knew of 12 journalists who had not only been killed by US troops in Iraq, but they had in fact been targeted. He repeated the assertion a few times, which seemed to win favor in parts of the audience (the anti-US crowd) and cause great strain on others.

Hugh, La Shawn, and CAPT Ed among others are all over this.
Just beyond all reason, logic, or explanation. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Let’s roll the tape………

UPDATE: Poor Mr. Eason. There is now a dedicated blog to "EasonGate" and it is mentioned at the UberBlog Powerline. Oh goodness. There is blood in the blogosphere water.
