Power of the Blogosphere

I didn't blog about Easongate, but others did here, here, and here, among others. Once again, the power of a free blogosphere has been demostrated and another member of the MSM has been held accountable. The comments by Eason Jordan (news chief for CNN) about the U.S. military targeting journalists were irresponsible and unsubstantiated. Following his admission to looking the other way re: Saddam's atrocities to protect CNN's access, I'm surprised he lasted this long. Anyway, I think the folks at have summed up this latest episode.

UPDATE: For all the discussion in the blogosphere, the MSM has been remarkably quiet on this story (probably because the tape of Eason's comments still hasn't been released). Jeremy Brown, guestblogging over at Michael Totten's blog, noticed how CNN announced Eason's resignation. He saved a screenshot from the CNN website and it was like playing "Where's Waldo" to find the story.
