Carol Platt Liebau: Eason Jordan is gone!

Eason Jordan is gone!

Eason Jordan has resigned. Of course, the story incorrectly states that "no transcript of [Jordan]'s actual remarks has turned up" -- which is incorrect.

There is a transcript, and the organizers of the Davos forum where Jordan made the remarks has it. Interestingly, neither he nor CNN ever called for its release. Coincidence? You decide . . . .

My guess is that the MSM -- or at least some in it -- are going to try to spin the Jordan affair as an example of blog martyrdom, that is, someone being brought down unfairly by bloggers. The argument has no merit. The overwhelming majority of bloggers weren't calling for Jordan to resign -- they were calling for the transcript of his remarks. If the transcript read consistently with the reports, then we were all going to call on him to resign.
