First of all, because it is true and it has to be said, Jordan's comments are outrageous, offensive, unsubstaniated, ridiculous, slanderous, and highly objectionable. I think Donald Rumsfeld should issue a very public invitation to Mr. Jordan to a podium in the Pentagon from which he can offer his apology to the entire United States military.
Now as to where the MSM is on this -- I think we are to the point where the MSM's lack of coverage on these statements, while outrageous, is no longer surprising, and therefore not that attention grabbing.
Post-Rathergate, both bias and the clubby environs of the MSM are well known to any mildly discriminating consumer of news. Under such circumstances I wonder if this is worthy of outrage, as opposed just marginalization. Once you know a person to be a fool you no longer worry about their foolish statements, you just set them over in the fool's corner and ignore them. Eason Jordan was not so long ago proven a fool.
