Do you remember the OP-ED written by CNN Executive Eason Jordan on 11 April, 2003?
A quick refresher.
Possibly the only people unmoved by the sight of jubilant Iraqis dancing in the streets and tearing down statues of Saddam Hussein last Wednesday were the good people of CNN. In an op-ed written for Friday?s New York Times, CNN chief news executive, Eason Jordan admitted covering up knowledge of the brutality and atrocities committed by Saddam?s government.(Emphasis added.)
Jordan tells of having Baghdad station employees abducted, beaten, tortured, and killed. He speaks of aides of Uday Hussein having their teeth ripped out with pliers for the inexcusable act of upsetting his boss. But never once did Eason Jordan or anyone else at CNN ever report on these atrocities.
So...does it strike you as peculiar that CNN is reporting on the alleged American abused non-stop, round the clock?
Well, I think you should get a free pass on being totally outraged over the incessant playing of the Iraqi prison story - ad nauseum - on CNN, the 24 hour duplicitous network.
Says one author (link via Instapundit):
Despite their record of complicity in covering up years of brutality and torture in Iraq under Saddam Hussein, CNN has lost no time in running endless reports on the Iraqi prison photos. Besides practically non-stop reports on the Iraqi Prisoner Abuse story, CNN's line up has been stocked with guests booked to discuss the Iraqi Prisoner Abuse story.The media simply disgust me.
