Trump-ed up: You wonít believe what Eason Jordanís up to now
Hot Air ^ | 12/4/11 | Michelle Malkin

Here’s a blast from the past.

Remember Eason Jordan? Every conservative political blogger worth his/her salt knows and remembers who he is.

Former CNN head Eason Jordan is the disgraced journalist who admitted in a 2003 New York Times op-ed piece titled “The News We Kept to Ourselves” that he deliberately and intentionally whitewashed Saddam Hussein’s atrocities and regurgitated Hussein propaganda for a decade in exchange for access. Let me underscore that: In 2003, after the U.S.-led Coalition invasion of Iraq and the fall of Saddam Hussein, Jordan confessed that CNN had deliberately reported Baathist propaganda during the Saddam era because it was more urgent to keep their Baghdad bureaus than to tell the truth about that brutal regime.

Former CNN head Eason Jordan is the disgraced journalist who suggested our U.S. troops were wantonly targeting journalists for murder at the 2005 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Here’s a refresher on the scandal and a reminder that, as reported on this blog, none other than Democrat Rep. Barney Frank, liberal political commentator David Gergen, and former Democrat Sen. Chris Dodd all confirmed/condemned the slander. He resigned from CNN in February 2005 as a result of the blowback.

Trump cannot be that stupid.

Is he setting a trap?

I've always had a queezy feeling about him.

He backed Hillary last time...and the whole fuss and flurry he put on over "O'bumbles birth cert - with O'Bumbles immediately putting NEW fake Cert. of live birth on the net - which the media covered for, people swallowed and that was an end to it.

Trump never made another peep. Ignored experts reports that it was a forgery, etc.

I've wondered if that wasn't a game-plan between him and the dark side to get the BC question out of the picture.

I really do not trust Trump.

I dunno wether I beilieve it or not . . .

. . . . who the hell is Eason Jordin???

I do not remember hearing that name;.

I spend a LOT OF TIME searching confirmations of claims in my incoming e-mails,.

I do not intend to spend ANY time doing the same on this subject (although I have,in the past done so, and I will probably do so hence)

But not this time.

Tell me succinctly, sweetie, why should I care about this particular "offender"?

From article: "Eason Jordan ... is also a member of the Council of Foreign Relations."

Any questions?

I agree. I never thought Trump was on the up and up.

You "did that"? Well you know those little shapes you saw in lines? They're called letters and sentences. They make words, sweetie. From the article (specifically about the "hoser in question"):

Because for years he suppressed the truth about Saddam Hussein's murders and torture in exchange for CNN's ability to report from Baghdad. I suppose you don't have to believe it, but he admitted it publicly.

And don't call me "sweetie".
