Eason Jordan

Eason Jordan, former head of the News Division at CNN, has announced he will be starting an all-Iraq news website.


Keep in mind, Eason Jordan was the one who admitted that CNN suppressed news of atrocities in Saddam Hussein's Iraq in order to keep its Baghdad bureau open.

Also, at the 2005 World Economic Forum Jordan accused U.S. forces of deliberately targeting journalists in Iraq. He repeatedly denied making these statements, and was eventually forced to resign from CNN when it became clear his denials were, well, less than accurate.

This is just the sort of refreshing objectivity this conflict needs!
