Kurtz answers an email invitation to respond:
I have a story in tomorrow's paper. Had you been kind enough to check earlier, I would have told you that I flagged it for The Post on the day that I was crashing on CBS naming Bob Schieffer as Rather's temporary replacement and said we should pursue it. Two other Post reporters pursued it, spoke to Jordan and decided not to write anything based on the fact that what was actually said was in dispute. I had nothing to do with that decision. I've since picked it up, done additional reporting and filed my story.
Jordan made his controversial remarks 10 days ago, on January 28, and they were a near- immediate hot blog topic. ... Kurtz's Scheiffer piece ran last Thursday, meaning it was finished last Wednesday. ... You make the call. ... Then later tonight you can read Kurtz's piece and try to figure out (as all WaPo readers must) if he's going too easy on the company that pays him tens of thousands and gives him national prominence or going too tough on them to compensate for his hideous conflict of interest! ... Update: [Is this Kurtz's piece?--ed. Sure looks like it! ... But I don't think so.] 7:01 P.M

This is getting good, huh?
Ah, backhoe, do you have a "thang" for this Eason Jordan stuff?
For your EJ file.

He's been a nuisance for some time.
