And We Ain't Done With Eason Jordan Yet, Neither

Mega-update on Easongate from Michelle Malkin, who notes the story is -- despite the best efforts of our Ant Media Overlords -- breaking through into the mainstream.

Best bit comes from Marvin Olasky:

Bloggers have reported the story extensively, often accusing Jordan of giving aid and comfort to terrorists and their appeasers. This is the type of story that's harder to cover than one in which dollars clearly change hands, but it may be a more subtle form of bribery. Fox is beating CNN in the United States, but CNN is No. 1 around the world and wants to stay that way. What better way than to kiss up to Europeans and Middle Easterners than by telling them what they want to believe about those awful Americans?

The establishment media, instead of circling wagons to protect one of their own, should investigate. If anyone has evidence of soldiers knowingly targeting journalists, let's hear it. If there is no evidence, Jordan should clearly and loudly apologize, and CNN should stop giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

And, interestingly enough, you ought to know that as blog-readers, you're better-connected than Chris Matthews and Judy Woodruff. (Okay, as multicellular organisms, you're probably better connected to reality than they, but still.)

Hugh Hewitt reports that even after Easongate had been the rage of the blogosphere for more than a week, talking-head newstwits still hadn't even heard of the story at all.

Or at least they claimed not to. Sometimes feigning ignorance is the best way to avoid giving any opinion that could get you into trouble.

Al Gore still hasn't heard the "details" of Juanita Broadderick's rape charges, for example.
