the networks, which had yet to address the issue, now needed to report the resignation of the head of a news organization for a scandal they never reported to their viewers.
Today, Tom Maguire runs roughshod over the New York Times’ coverage–or lack thereof–of EasonGate:
The NY Times delivers a comedy classic as it attempts to explain to its readers that a prominent CNN executive has resigned under fire:
Eason Jordan, a senior executive at CNN who was responsible for coordinating the cable network’s Iraq coverage, resigned abruptly last night, citing a journalistic tempest he touched off during a panel discussion at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, late last month in which he appeared to suggest that United States troops had deliberately aimed at journalists, killing some.
A “journalistic tempest”? This is the first story to appear in the Times! Geez, fashionably late to a party is one thing, but fashionably late to a journalistic tempest?
Read the rest–if only to be fashionable!
