CNN More Aggresively Covering Up

Oh boy. Now I'm important too. Someone from CNN sent me the e-mail Jim Geraghty and Captain Ed received earlier. Here it is:

Many blogs have taken Mr. Jordan's remarks out of context. Eason Jordan does not believe the U.S. military is trying to kill journalists. Mr. Jordan simply pointed out the facts: While the majority of journalists killed in Iraq have been slain at the hands of insurgents, the Pentagon has also noted that the U.S. military on occasion has killed people who turned out to be journalists. The Pentagon has apologized for those actions.

Mr. Jordan was responding to an assertion by Cong. Frank that all 63 journalist victims had been the result of "collateral damage."

Thanks for your interest in Bogus Gold, CNN. But as I asked earlier - where is the transcript?

Your assertions about Mr. Jordan don't tell me what he said, and they imply that two others who were present are either lying or wrong. If that's true, there is an easy way you could clear things up for us. I don't need any more e-mail telling me there's nothing to see here. Produce the transcript.

UPDATE: More recent thoughts on this incident in light of more recent discovery.
