Eason Jordan - Full Disclosure Needed

By sending their rather opaque email yesterday it is evident that CNN is a bit nervous about the blogs, as well they should be — Congratulations, Charles! None of us will be satisfied until we see a transcript and/or a video tape of the session. The fact that it has not been produced as yet is highly suspicious. It is almost incomprehensible that verbatim records of events at the World Economic Forum are not readily available to CNN. Eason Jordan’s admitted previous behavior cozying up to the Saddam Hussein regime for news access means that he is an admitted liar of a sort and not to be trusted. Full disclosure, please. That means transcripts and video to understand the context which is under debate.

UPDATE: Some psychoanalysis of Mr. Jordan from Posse Incitatus.
