Suspicous anxiety dustbunny sans anchor might go away...yeah right. Janet Jackson was velcro for unassigned, unrelated unease. The biggest black eye in the Eason Jordan story, in my opinion, is not the bloggers on the right, not the bloggers on the left, not Jarvis, Jordan, the Davos organizers, but CNN - do they care?
His accusers may be right, his allegations true, both, nobody seems interested. A TimeWarner quarter priority ladder: risk avoidance, ratings, real news, truth.
This giant suspicion cloud ("it's an outcome still unexplained, reporters on the media beat")- the source, either CNN, Jordan, some kind of authority can quell the upset by giving it a home. Doubters from the right: he was one of many who just happened to get caught - why should we watch? Doubters from the left: they report it, unless of course it upsets the wrong people in which case they'll spike it and fire the reporter, we decide - why should we watch? "The most trusted name in news"?? Sounds like "Fair and Balanced".
