Big Eason Jordan Update

It gets better and better.

After claiming his remarks were "taken out of context" (the only lamer excuses would be that he was being "ironic" or "just playing a character," a la Ice-T or Eminem), Captain's Quarters discovers Eason Jordan previously claiming that the American military has tortured or killed ten journalists.

Great batch of links at Hugh Hewitt.

Glenn Reynolds asked a good question the other day. Rather than the media asking "are bloggers really journalists," maybe they should start asking if journalists are really journalists.

Eason Jordan seemed very, very careful not to say anything mean about his sponsor Saddam Hussein. However, when it comes to America and the American military, he seems perfectly willing to traffic in the sort of absurd conspiratorial gossip that passes for "news" on Al Jazeera.
