EASON JORDAN RESIGNS!

Full Drudge Siren:

Breaking AP report:

CNN chief news executive Eason Jordan quit Friday amidst a furor over remarks he made in Switzerland last month about journalists killed by the U.S. military in Iraq.

Jordan said he was quitting to avoid CNN being "unfairly tarnished" by the controversy.

During a panel discussion at the World Economic Forum last month, Jordan said he believed that several journalists who were killed by coalition forces in Iraq had been targeted.


Ramesh Ponnuru at NRO's Corner got the tip first.

Say what you want-- but a dozen Eason Jordans can never equal one Jeff Gannon.

Thanks for the huge decigannon tip (a "decigannon" tip is equal to one tenth the importance of a Jeff Gannon tip) to JimW, who just made my whole freakin' day.

A Plea to the Main Stream Media:

Sirs,

I realize now that has all spun wildly out of control.

It was fun to "get" Dan Rather. It's fun to "get" Eason Jordan.

But until Jeff Gannon fell -- a man who saved my life in Vietnam, and, in a way, saved all of our lives just by the simple grace of his existence -- I didn't realize how hurtful and small-minded all of this was.

Sirs-- my Media Overlords -- I implore you, let us end this savagery and madness before another good man goes down.

And yes: speaking as high-ranking member of the Digital Brownshirts, I am authorized to suggest a trade.

You get to keep Dan Rather and Eason Jordan. We will never speak of their incompetence and/or hatred of America again.

Just give us Jeff Gannon back. Do us this one act of merciful charity and we can go back to the way it used to be, where you pretended to report the news and we pretended to believe you.

Please. Please, give us back our Jeff Gannon.

I will do anything to make this deal happen. Anything. Anderson Cooper, I'm looking right at you. I think you understand the wide parameters of the word "anything."

An. Y. Thing. Wink, wink.

Sincerely,

Ace of Spades
Obersturmfuehrer in the Digital Brownshirt Army


Either you get Jeff Gannon back or
I am out of here, forever.

But baby-- I'm workin' on it!
