Blckfive asks for our help
Hi MilBlogs and Friends-
Eason Jordan, the Chief News Executive of CNN recently made statements
at the World Economic Forum in Davos, where he accused American
servicemen of intentionally targeting and killing journalists in Iraq.
These are serious charges that should not have been made without
supporting evidence, which he did not provide.
American servicemen and women are risking their lives daily and it is
wholly inappropriate for a man of his stature and influence to make
baseless claims in front of an international audience. As an
experienced journalist, he fully understands the impact of his words
and the effects on his audience. Mr. Jordan has a past history of
making such statements.
I would request that you take a look at this issue which I believe the
MilBloggers and their supporters would have an interest in helping.
Easongate ( http://www.easongate.com ) has been created by some former
military men to gather signatures and engage CNN in order to create
Our hope is that CNN will launch an investigation into Mr. Jordan's
past and recent history, and take appropriate action. We hope to
provide the means for the public to place pressure on CNN to act.
We need your help.
