By now most of us are aware of the scandal over Eason Jordan's comment alleging US troops intentionally targeting journalists. And "due to" blog pressure, and despite it being a non-issue in the mainstream media, Jordan has resigned from CNN. The scuffle has evolved beyond what Jordan alleged into a power struggle between mainstream media and the blogosphere. Leaving all of these issues aside I question why Jordan felt it necessary to resign at all! The blogs, though persistent in pursuing the story and the truth, had not to me generated the same level of pressure as they did with Rathergate (and still no resignation!). Why couldn't Jordan issue a public apology and retraction of his unfounded assertion without resignation? I think that would have satisfied most. Thus i believe there is more to the Jordan's resignation than what has been revealed thus far.
